Dr. Hae-Kwon Jeong, associate professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has developed a novel method to separate light olefins – such as ethylene and propylene that are used in packaging, plastic processing and textile manufacturing – from paraffins – such as ethane and propane. This is one of the most significant separations in chemical and petrochemical industries, with propylene production amounting to around $90 billion annually worldwide, yet one of the most challenging due to the similarity of their physical and chemical properties.
