Methyl Ethylene
Propylene (a.k.a. Propene, Methyl Ethylene) has been established as a major component of the global olefins business, second only to ethylene. Propylene is available either as a pure stream (PG or CG) or as a mixed propane-propylene (RG). The propylene market is dominated by the PG propylene, which is mainly used in polypropylene manufacturing. Having one double bond, this was the first petrochemical employed on an industrial scale, and is the second in natural abundance. Being a byproduct in ethylene production, propene’s development and expansion grew tremendously since 1965, due to ethylene's success as a chemical building block. Nowadays, it is a major industrial chemical intermediate, serving as building block for an array of chemical and plastic products.
