English [Auto-generated]
Understand the Petrochemical Industry
Define the Upstream vs. Downstream Industries in Petroleum Industry
Identify names, molecules, physical & chemical properties of most important Petrochemicals
Understand the importance of the petrochemicals produced

The course is mainly about the petrochemical industry. Talks about several chemicals and their chemical routes in order to produce in mass scale the demands of the market.

Learn about:

  • Petorchemical Industry

  • Difference between Petroleum Refining vs. Petrochemical Industry

  • Paraffins, Olefins, Napthenes & Aromatics   

  • Market insight (production, consumption, prices)

  • Two main Petrochemical Processes: Naphtha Steam Cracking and Fluid Catalytic Cracking

  • The most important grouping in petrochemical products

  • Petrochemical physical & chemical properties. Chemical structure, naming, uses, production, etc.

  • Basic Gases in the industry: Ammonia, Syngas, etc…

  • C1 Cuts: Methane, Formaldehyde, Methanol, Formic Acid, Urea, Chloromethanes etc…

  • C2 Cuts: Ethane, Acetylene, Ethylene, Ethylene Dichloride, Vinyl Chloride, Ethylene Oxide, Ethanolamines, Ethanol, Acetaldehyde, Acetic Acid, Ethylene Glycols (MEG, DEG, TEG)

  • C3 Cuts: Propane, Propylene, Propylene Oxide, Isopropanol, Acetone, Acrylonitrile, Propediene, Allyl chloride, Acrylic acid, Propionic Acid, Propionaldehyde, Propylene Glycol

  • C4 Cuts: Butanes, Butylenes, Butadiene, Butanols, MTBE (Methyl Tert Butyl Ethers)

  • C5 cuts: Isoprene, Pentanes, Piperylene, Cyclopentadiene, Dicyclopentadiene, Isoamyl, etc…

  • Aromatics: Benzene, Toluene, Xylenes (BTX), Cumene, Phenol, Ethyl Benzene, Styrene, Pthalic Anhydride, Nitrobenzene, Aniline, Benzoic Acid, Chlorobenzene, etc…

At the end of the course you will feel confident in how the petrochemical industry is established. You will know the most common petrochemicals as well as their distribution, production and importance in daily life. It will help in your future process simulations by knowing the common and economical chemical pathways.
