Propylene (also known as Propene) has been established as a major component of the global olefins business, second only to ethylene. It is mainly used in the production of polypropylene; but it is also employed in the synthesis of other chemicals, such as acrylonitrile, acrilic acid, oxo-alcohols, propylene oxide, and cumene. Propylene is majorly produced as byproduct of ethylene production, by steam cracking of hydrocarbon feedstocks, and petroleum refining.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Propylene 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).
