  • Ethylene Plant Treatment Hydrocarbon Engineering

    Ethylene is the most commonly produced petrochemical product. The bulk of annual commercial ethylene production is based on thermal cracking of hydrocarbon feedstocks with steam. Usual raw materials for pyrolysis are refinery gas, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas liquids (NGL), naphtha or gas oil. The production of ethylene is a very complex process, including cracking, cooling, ...
