Cover Story (view full-size image): Oxidative coupling of methane (OCM) is a process used to directly convert methane into ethylene. In this work, we investigated the integration of different membranes to increase the overall performance of large-scale OCM process from a techno-economic point of view. The results show that the OCM reactor yield improves when integrating membranes in packed bed reactors. These higher yields positively impact the economics and performance of the downstream separation, resulting in an ethylene cost production of €595–625/ton C2H4 depending on the type of membranes employed, which is 25%–30% lower than the benchmark technology.View this paper.
