Petrochemicals

PETROCHEMICALS OVERVIEW AND CHALLENGES Petrochemical processes are designed to convert oil and natural gas cuts into base chemicals (the major intermediates) for the chemicals industry, such as olefins and aromatics. These compounds are subsequently used to manufacture chemicals used in a number of fields: plastics processing, pharmacy, agriculture, cosmetics, electronics
