Monomeric styrene is consumed in large quantities for the production of polystyrene polymers. Improvements of the traditional process have been developed continually in order to improve product yield and reduce utility costs1. However, the process is still highly energy consuming due to the high temperatures and pressures required for the reactions, as well as the necessary purification of the crude styrene that is produced. As such, development of a more efficient and sustainable process is highly desirable in terms of economic savings and reduced environmental impact.
