Abstract

Process for the preparation of ethylene by pyrolysis of low molecular weight hydrocarbons, by contacting a flow of gas, consisting of low molecular weight hydrocarbons with an inert particulate carrier material having a surface area of > 0.01 and /g, at a temperature in the range of from 1000 to 1400 DEG C and at a GHSV of from 100 to 6000 hr, during a period in the range of from 1 minute to 60 minutes, followed by recovering ethylene gas produced in said reaction from the product stream, and calcination of said inert particulate carrier material in a flow of an oxidizing gas to remove the carbonaceous deposits on the carrier material surface, at a temperature in the range of from 600 DEG C to 1000 DEG C and a GHSV of from 100 to 6000 hr, for at least one minute.
