Information and benefit


Petrochemical is a hydrocarbon compound caused by the accumulation of fossil remains for a long time. Under high temperature and pressure Chemicals produced from petroleum products Through various important chemical processes, namely refinery process and physical process and 2 major petrochemicals, namely olefins, ethylene, propylene, etc. Another group is aromatics, namely benzene, toluene and xylene. These three substances are collectively called BTX.

What are petrochemical products? Petrochemical products are manufactured products. With the main raw material coming from petroleum Which has many types From various energy such as oil or gas and also used as raw materials in industrial plants such as various gases until plastic pellets Synthetic fibers Anything that comes from petroleum can be said to be Total petrochemical products

What are petrochemical products for this petrochemical product? Can almost say that Everything in our daily lives? In this day, we will live on this earth without relying on petrochemical products. Even if one day Would probably not have lost Because everything in our lives has changed Want to know that Petrochemical products What is this? Try to see this. For the frog outside the shell will help open up our world. Then we will know that the environment we have is only petrochemical products

  • Olefins group Used as a precursor for the production of various plastics such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE). It is also used as a precursor for the production of many other chemicals such as polyethylene Alcohol, which is used to produce detergents
  • Aromatics group Used as a solvent and used as a substrate for the production of other chemicals.
    • Gasoline is used as a precursor for soap and detergent production. Used to produce plastic called "ABS" which is used to make television TV cabinet, helmet, etc.
    • Toluene is used as industrial solvents, paints, thinner, adhesives, pesticides, etc.
    • Xylene is used as a substrate in the production of fibers, yarns, food containers, food bags, heat, etc.
  • Used as fuel for heat sources Including the use of fuel for electricity generation, such as natural gas, LPG or LPG, and fuel oil, etc.
  • Used as feedstocks for the petrochemical industry. Will see that the raw materials of the petrochemical industry are all derived from petroleum products And the use of products derived from the petroleum industry can be divided according to the major uses As follows
  • Used as fuel for driving various vehicles such as liquefied natural gas (NGL), gasoline, diesel and diesel and jet fuel (JET A1) etc.
  • Used as fuel for heat sources Including the use of fuel for electricity generation, such as natural gas, LPG or LPG, and fuel oil, etc.
  • Used as feedstocks for the petrochemical industry.
  • The petrochemical industry will use raw materials from these petroleum industries. To be produced continuously into plastic pellets, synthetic fibers, synthetic rubber, coatings and adhesives. These products are considered as the basic raw materials that are essential in the production of basic consumer goods. As well as equipment, tools and equipment for occupation Including various facilities that make humans more comfortable living
