Maximising Propylene Yields

Date: 24th January 2018 - 25th January 2018 Location: Madrid - Spain
Exploring Alternative Processes to Maximise Refining Flexibility: Adjusting to Propylene Market Needs

5th edition of ACI’s Maximising Propylene Yields Conference will bring together senior executives and experts from the refining, chemical & petrochemical industries, as well as leading market analysts, consultants, technology providers & innovators to discuss the latest challenges and developments within the propylene industry.

The two day event will give you an in depth insight to the industry`s latest & future market dynamics and uncertainties and, while focusing largely on refining strategies to adjust to upcoming propylene production trends, will also concentrate on key updates and future forecasts on supply & demand trends of propylene feedstocks and propylene derivatives. By highlighting the sector’s current major challenges and opportunities the conference will provide a holistic outlook on market trends and drivers.

The petrochemical feedstocks shift creates now bigger demand 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.

Join Maximizing Propylene Yields 2018 to hear in depth insights into the global & European market shifts, key business applications, investments projects as well as future objectives on maximising refining flexibility & production optimisation, to adjust to the market needs.

The participants will have a unique opportunity to take an active part in interactive sessions & panel discussions to share their knowledge, experience and uncertainties. The event will give you insights from end-use markets giving updates on market growth drivers along with sustainable advancements in technologies and R&D projects. Join us in Madrid to meet senior representatives from leading companies for excellent networking opportunities.
