Naphtha catalytic cracking (high value chemicals)


Technology Description

Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is the second largest source of propylene, which is essentially a by-product of refinery gasoline production. While the usual feed to an FCC unit is heavy hydrocarbons, the use of naphtha as feedstock improves the yield of the process and increases the capability to control the composition of olefins.

Relevance for Net Zero

This technology can help improve the efficiency of chemicals production. However, it does not lead to near-zero emissions.
