In addition to the potential for carbon reduction, this development also creates an opportunity for the company to further penetrate the ethylene market, which is estimated at about $125 billion globally. 

Approximately 160 million tons of ethylene are produced per year. The most commonly used petrochemical in the world, ethylene is currently produced primarily from fossil inputs in a reaction that releases carbon dioxide. The new development can turn carbon into a resource to produce ethylene in a continuous, low-temperature, energy-efficient process.
