Ethylene (a.k.a. Ethene) is an unsaturated organic compound, the simplest member of the alkene class of hydrocarbons. Even though it has no direct use, being used almost exclusively as a building block, ethylene is largest-volume petrochemical produced worldwide. It has one double bond and, in room temperature, ethene is a sweet odor and taste gas, colorless and extremely flammable. It has been produced since the 1930s; however, its production grew rapidly in the middle of the twentieth century, when oil and chemical companies began separating it from refinery waste gas and producing it from natural gas and ethane (obtained from byproduct refinery streams). Ethylene may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Ethylene or Green Ethylene.
