Action

Siluria Technologies, an industrial start-up based out of San Francisco, California, approached the GLS team to conduct a site selection study for a pilot plant scale facility to convert natural gas (methane) using proprietary technology to ethylene.

Results

Part of the site selection process included identifying both co-location opportunities as well as greenfield locations. The search region considered was an array of states along the Gulf Coast of the United States. The final decision was made to co-locate with Braskem’s facility in La Porte, Texas at the mouth of the Houston Ship Channel. Siluria was able to leverage existing infrastructure available in order to limit upfront investment costs.
