Abstract

Ethylene oligomerisation technologies, whether in the production of unselective or selective alpha olefins or polymer, have many process technologies in common. As such, a review of the technologies serves as a good basis on which to find an optimal configuration for any specific oligomerisation technology required. It has been found that the literature contains many technology alternatives for all process aspects of a typical homogeneous selective oligomerisation technology including catalyst preparation, feed material preparation, reactor and heat removal design and control, polymeric solids handling in both the reactor and work-up sections, different options for ethylene and product recovery, catalyst deactivation techniques, catalyst and polymeric material removal techniques and product work options
