Propylene and derivatives

Introduction

Diving into C3 value chain – propylene and its derivatives from the production technology, to market dynamics (supply, demand, trade), to the applications

Learning topics and objectives

  1. Understand the on-purpose propylene technologies and those to make other propylene derivatives
  2. Learn the market and applications of all chemicals in the C3 value chain, including:
    1. Propylene and polypropylene
    2. Acrylic acid and super absorbent polymer (SAP)
    3. Acrylonitrile and acrylic fibers
    4. Propylene oxide (PO) and polyols
    5. Cumene, phenol, Acetone and methyl methacrylate (MMA)

Modules

  1. Propylene: propylene supply, on-purpose propylene technologies, i.e. propane dehydration, olefin metathesis, coal to olefins; new capacity by technology, leading producers, trade and demand
  2. Polypropylene: technology, i.e. catalyst and its legal issues, demand, applications, leading producers, trade
  3. Acrylic acid: different technologies and licensors; leading producers of acrylic acid; demand and end-uses of super absorbent polymer (SAP), e.g. diapers, paint, UV coating, etc.; demonstration on the function of SAP
  4. Acrylonitrile: chemical process, leading producers, demand, acrylic fibers, trade of acrylonitrile
  5. Propylene oxide (PO) and Polyols: different processes to make PO; leading producers; demand for polyols and glycols; propylene glycol demand and applications
  6. Cumene, Phenol and Acetone: value chain, cumene and phenol leading producers; phenolic resins (bakelite); formation of bisphenol A and its health debate; epoxy resins demand; polycarbonate properties, applications, leading producers and demand; methyl methacrylate (MMA) chemical processes and applications
  7. Oxo-Alcohols: chemical processes, regional producers, demand of oxo-alcohols, i.e. n-butanol, 2-ehyl hexanol (2-EH)
