4th Maximising Propylene Yields

Date: 7th December 2016 - 8th December 2016 Location: Frankfurt - Germany

Exploring Alternative Processes to Capitalise on the Propylene Supply Gap

Global and European Propylene market has changed significantly over past few years. With the continuous shift on petrochemical feedstocks and growth of derivatives demand it is certain that propylene and propylene derivatives market will create production technology investment and supply opportunities. ACI is delighted to announce the 4th Maximising Propylene Yields, which will take place on the 7th – 8th December 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Propylene is a building block for many end products and markets. It is one of the largest organic hydrocarbons produced and consumed globally. It is a highly explosive gas used entirely to produce downstream derivatives, which are raw materials for a variety of industrial and consumer products. Key end markets include plastics, solvents, paints and coatings. The petrochemical feedstocks shift creates more and more for the on purpose production and alternative sources to capitalize on the supply gap. Furthermore, rising derivative demand is generating a new market for additional supply, further driving the business development case for new projects.

The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the Propylene industry to discuss the challenges faced and the future opportunities. Conference will discuss the current overview of the markets, with highlights from experts on the progression of the market and new insights and innovation of projects in pipeline.

The conference will also have insights from bulding derivatives markets giving updates on growth drivers along with sustainable advancements in technologies. Join us in Frankfurt to meet senior representatives from leading companies for excellent networking opportunities
