Propane Dehydrogenation

Propane dehydrogenation (PDH) is a key processing step in the on purpose production of propylene from propane feedstock. Propylene is the world’s 2nd largest petrochemical commodity and attributes its demand growth largely to the further production of polypropylene, which is used in a wide range of every day products from grocery packaging to weather resistant clothing.
