INTRODUCTION The studies on converting C4 hydrocarbons into ethene and propene have recently attracted great interest (Lemonidou and Stambouli, 1998; Ji et al.
This effect can be followed in the produced amounts of ethane and ethene (Fig.
If chlorinated solvents have been identified as contaminants of concern, ethene and chloride levels may be evaluated, as these are by-products of chlorinated solvents and may indicate biodegradation.
The first stage of degradative process reveals the formation of ethene with two exothermic DTA peaks.
First, ripe and unripe bananas which I use to describe the role of ethene gas in their ripening.
Enhanced anaerobic bioremediation using 3DMe adds hydrogen (an electron donor) to groundwater in order to increase the number and activity of anaerobic microbes that naturally biodegrade many contaminants to ethane, ethene and other innocuous end products.

In the next five years, Ethene production and demand will continue to grow.
As it can be seen, elastomers polymerized with different catalytic systems and with different ethene content were selected.
