Chemical Grade Propylene
C3H6
Polymer grade
Propylene is a major industrial chemical intermediate that serves as building block for an array of chemical and plastic products. The Propylene market is dominated by the PG Propylene, which is mainly used in polypropylene production. PG Propylene is also used in propylene oxide manufacture. The other grades of Propylene are used for different applications. CG Propylene is used extensively for most chemical derivatives (e.g., oxo-alcohols, acrylonitrile, etc.). RG Propylene, which is obtained from refinery processes, is used in liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for thermal purposes or as an octane-enhancing component in motor gasoline. It can also be used in some chemical syntheses (e.g., cumene or isopropanol). The most significant market for RG Propylene, however, is the conversion to PG or CG Propylene.

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.
