About:

Propylene is one of the oldest petrochemical feedstocks in the gas industry. Propylene (Polymer Grade) is primarily utilised in the production of cumene, propylene oxide and acrylic acid. The three grades of propylene include polymer, refinery and chemical, where polymer grade comes with a minimum purity of 99.5%. Propylene is also one of the smallest stable unsaturated hydrocarbon molecules utilised in the gas industry. This grade nearly accounts for two-thirds of global propylene consumption and is further used to produce acrylonitrile (ACN).

Production Process

  • Production of Propylene (Polymer Grade) during Ethylene Production via the Steam Cracking of Hydrocarbon Feedstocks; and as a by-product via Petroleum Refining.

During ethylene production, the Propylene (Polymer Grade) molecule is produced as a co-product during the steam cracking (steam pyrolysis) of hydrocarbon feedstocks. These hydrocarbon feedstocks include a wide range of products like ethane, naphtha and gas oils. Moreover, Propylene (Polymer Grade) can also be produced through petroleum refining process as a by-product.
