Propene, also known as propylene, is an olefin, a type of hydrocarbon, and is the second-most produced petrochemical in the world. It is a colourless gas with a sweet odour and is used in the production of a variety of products, including plastics, synthetic rubber, and solvents. Propene is produced from the cracking of hydrocarbons such as ethane, propane, and butane, and is also produced as a by-product of the refining of crude oil. It is used in the production of polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide range of applications, including packaging, automotive components, and textiles. Propene is also used in the production of acrylic acid, which is used in the manufacture of paints, coatings, and adhesives. It is also used in the production of propylene oxide, which is used in the manufacture of polyurethane foam, detergents, and solvents. The propene market is highly competitive, with a number of large companies operating in the sector. These include ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, Total, and BASF. Show Less Read more
