Nov 11, 2017

The petrochemical industry is a petrochemical industry and the petrochemical industry is a basic industry. It provides support and services for agriculture, energy, transportation, machinery, electronics, textiles, light industry, construction, building materials, and other industries and people’s daily lives. Occupies a pivotal position. It is an important part of the chemical industry and plays an important role in the development of the national economy. It is one of China's pillar industries.
Petrochemical refers to the processing industry that uses petroleum and natural gas as raw materials to produce petroleum products and petrochemical products. Petroleum products, also known as oil products, mainly include various fuel oils (gasoline, kerosene, diesel, etc.) and lubricating oils, as well as liquefied petroleum gas, petroleum coke, paraffin, and asphalt. The process of producing these products is often referred to as petroleum refining, or refining for short. Petrochemical products are obtained by further chemical processing of the raw oil provided by the refining process.
The first step in the production of petrochemical products is the cracking of feedstock oils and gases (such as propane, gasoline, diesel, etc.) to produce basic chemical raw materials represented by ethylene, propylene, butadiene, benzene, toluene, and xylene. The second step is to produce a variety of organic chemical raw materials (about 200 kinds) and synthetic materials (plastics, synthetic fibers, synthetic rubber) based on basic chemical raw materials. The production of these two steps belongs to the scope of petrochemicals. The continued processing of organic chemical raw materials can produce more varieties of chemical products, which are not customarily within the scope of petrochemicals. In some materials, ammonia, urea, and even nitric acid can also be included in petrochemicals using natural gas, light gasoline, and heavy oil as raw materials.
There are four basic types of petrochemical raw materials: acetylenes (acetylenes), olefins (ethylene, propylene, butylene, and butadiene), aromatics (benzene, toluene, xylene), and synthesis gas.
