Aromatic plant 3 started commercial operation in December 1989 with the introduction of IFP and ARCO technology. This plant uses pyrolysis gasoline (PG) as feedstock, and sulfolane, the hydrogenated and extractant, to selectively fractionate aromatic raffinate, and then high-purity benzene, toluene and xylene.
