The Greener FCC – Moving From Fuels To Petrochemicals

16:00 - 00:00

  • Historically about 30% of global petrochemical propylene demand has been supplied by less than 1/3 of the FCCs operating around the world
  • Today, a majority of grassroots FCC units being built will focus on propylene production and will be integrated with petrochemical facilities, but these new units will not keep up with propylene demand growth
  • The latest developments in FCC technology can also be applied to revamping existing FCC units to achieve a shift from fuels mode to petrochemical mode of operation, producing not only a higher margin product slate, but also displacing some of the fuels products that contribute to greenhouse gases
