Ethylene (also known as Ethene) is known as a key building block for the petrochemical industry, being one of the largest-volume petrochemical produced worldwide. It is widely used as chemical intermediate in the production of several end products, including plastics, resins and fibers. Ethylene may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Ethylene or Green Ethylene. Ethylene is largely produced by thermal cracking of petroleum-based feedstocks, in the presence of steam.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Ethylene production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
