- Propene is
an unsaturated organic compound having the chemical formula C3H6
, and it also known as propylene.
a light olefin, is one of the most important feedstocks for the
Polypropylene (PP), acrylonitrile, oxo alcohols, propylene
oxide, cumene and acrylic acid are the main derivatives of
Process and Technology
UOP Oleflex process is a catalytic dehydrogenation
technology for the production of light olefins from their
corresponding paraffins. Propylene is obtained from propane
by this technology.
Methanol to Propylene technology is based on the efficient
combination of two main features: 1. Fixed-bed reactor
system selected as the most suitable reaction system from a
technological and economic point of view regarding this
specific task, 2. Highly selective and stable zeolite-based
fixed-bed catalyst commercially manufactured
Propylene is obtained from the two main sources, as a
byproduct from the steam cracking of liquid feedstocks such
as naphtha as well as LPGs, and from off-gases produced in
fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units in refineries.
second-largest source of propylene is a by-product of
gasoline production in refineries.
five process in producing propylene is Steam Cracking, Fluid
Catalytic Cracking, Propane Dehydrogenation, Natural Gas or
Methanol to Olefins, Olefin Conversion.
Propylene being the word’s second largest petrochemical
commodity is used in the production of polypropylene,
acrylonitrile, acrylic acid, acrolein, propylene oxide
and glycols, plasticizer oxo alcohols, cumene, isopropyl
alcohol, and acetone.
Propylene is used in calibration gas mixtures for
petrochemical industry; environmental emission
monitoring, industrial hygiene monitors and trace
Propene is used as major raw material for the production
of polypropylene, a versatile polymer widely used in
several different grades for packaging.
Market and Demand
Propylene demand is growing faster than ethylene,
combined with the building of more ethane crackers
rather than naphtha crackers, on-purpose
technologies are being employed increasingly to make
growth in propylene production is primarily driven
by the industry demand for polypropylene.
world propylene consumption is forecasted to
increase by 4.8% per year in the next few years.
Propylene demand is expected to grow faster than
supply. Propylene supply/demand conditions and
pricing are strongly dependent on refinery
production and the supply/demand balance, operating
rates and feedstock slates in the ethylene industry.
Propylene demand growth continues to be strong in
Asia and driven by China which is expected to
account for three quarters of the total Asian growth
over the next five years.
