Development of technologies for complex processing of by-products and petrochemical production wastes with obtaining high-margin products by small and medium-sized enterprises
Large-tonnage petrochemistry cannot exist without co-formation of by-products, due to the fact that the raw material is the oil fraction, consisting of a mixture of numerous hydrocarbons, and the product, as a rule, is a narrow fraction or the only substance with a high degree of purity.
Low cost of by-products and the usage of modern, innovative technologies, make it possible to obtain products with high profitability - hundreds and sometimes thousands percents.
Currently, the main ways of by-products utilization consists mainly in burning them in boiler houses and mixing them in gasoline and diesel fuel, which, of course, increases the emission of toxic substances into the atmosphere and, as a result, leads to environmental degradation.
The only way to make petrochemistry eco-friendly and waste-free is to develop new, waste-free technologies for processing by-products of petrochemical plants as technologies for producing basic petrochemical products are improved.
