Propane De-hydrogenation (PDH) is a process in which propylene is produced by removing hydrogen from propane. Propylene is used as a base oil for plastics, synthetic fibers, automotive interior materials, etc. Propylene, along with ethylene, is used as a basic raw material for many petrochemical products, and has becoming the foundation of the petrochemical industry. Recently, there is a continuous increase in demand for propylene due to the growth of related industries. 

This project was supplied in compliance of TECHNICAL LICENSE for CATOFIN PROCESS of ABB LUMMUS.
