Ethylene plant 1 started commercial operation in April 1980 with the introduction of Lummus technology.
This plant cracking naphtha with steam into the light hydrocarbon compound at a high temperature in excess of 800℃, and quenches, compresses and fractionate it to produce ethylene, propylene, mixed C4, pyrolysis gasoline, etc.
|Hydrogen||Used as feedstock for the hydrogenation reactor.|
|Ethylene||It is the most important basic feedstock in petrochemistry. It is used as feedstock for High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE), Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), ethyl alcohol, ethylene glycol, etc.|
|Propylene||Used as feedstock for polypropylene (PP), acetone, isopropyl alcohol, propylene glycol, etc.|
|Propane||Used as fuel or as feedstock for the resin plant (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE).|
|Mixed C4||Used as feedstock for the BD plant.|
|Used as feedstock for the aromatic plant.|
|Heavy Fuel Oil
|Used as fuel|
