Analysis of Ethylene Production

  August 04, 2015  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
September 2, 2015 at 12:00 p.m.–1:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend?
This training is designed for those who would benefit from a complete overview of novel petrochemical processing techniques for olefins starting with shale gas feedstock sources. Those with limited to moderate petrochemical processing experience or those who are involved in supporting operations, operating personnel and engineering staff will benefit from this course.

Job Titles/Functions Appropriate for the Seminar
  • Process, Project, Environmental and Plant Engineers 
  • Operations Economic Evaluators
  • Commercial Development Analysts and Planning Engineers 
  • Fuel Buyers and Oil Traders
  • Catalyst Manufacturers and Refinery Chemists
  • Product, Equipment, Chemicals, Supplies or Services Sales Personnel
  • Shale Gas Companies and Feedstock Suppliers

Course Description
This 90-minute accredited online training will present an overview of the current research efforts for mixed metal oxides in the area of catalysis in the production of light olefins. This information is then used to develop a scoping level plant design and then compare the performance relative to a modern, integrated petrochemical plant. This will include feedstock properties, product slate, and the processes used to convert shale gas and liquid fuels into desirable products. Basic hydrocarbon chemistry, development of the stoichiometry and feed/product quality will be discussed, including changes of the product slates resulting from a worldwide feedstock shift. The General Process Simulator in ASPENHYSYS will be used to illustrate shale gas or liquid fuel characteristics and the required processing into light olefins.

Invited Speakers:
Gennaro J. (Jerry) Maffia; Professor of Chemical Engineering, Manhattan College and Consultant to the Chemical Processing Industry

After twenty years as a process engineer and manager in the petrochemicals industry, mostly with Atlantic Richfield, Inc., Dr. Maffia is now Professor of Chemical Engineering at Manhattan College and is an active consultant in chemical and bio-based processes. Prof. Maffia has broad research interests in environmental, energy and biotechnology areas. In addition to many recent seminars/webinars on natural gas mining and conversion, Prof. Maffia is currently working on a text for Wiley Publishers on this topic. He has offered short courses and seminars on process engineering and related topics at sites around the world on six continents. A frequent volunteer for a variety of community and outreach activities, Prof. Maffia established a student chapter of Engineers Without Borders at Widener University. He is now involved in service projects for potable water supply in Haiti, Kenya and the Philippines through Manhattan College. Recently, Prof. Maffia has reestablished the collagen research group at Manhattan College and has initiated research projects with NASA, L’Oreal, ARK and the USDA. Prof. Maffia has undergraduate and graduate degrees from Manhattan College, an MBA from the Stern School at NYU and a doctorate from Dartmouth College.
