ethylene
3
Ethylene (a.k.a. Ethene, Green Ethylene) is an unsaturated organic compound known as a key building block for the petrochemical industry, being one of the largest-volume petrochemicals produced worldwide. It has one double bond and is the simplest member of the alkene class of hydrocarbons. Ethylene may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Ethylene or Green Ethylene.
