Abstract

The C123 project will develop two scenarios for the production of C3 products from unutilised natural gas sources. The add-on route targets propylene production in large, established petrochemical facilities. The modular route targets the production of a set of other C3 products from remote, stranded methane sources such as marginal gas or biogas. Potential sites for the exploitation of the C123 technology are investigated. A market study of the potential C3 products from the modular route, propanal, 1-propanol and propionic acid is then provided, which indicates that a smaller, local production process for these chemicals may have economic viability.
