Global ethylene plant capacities rising

Feb '12
Worldwide ethylene production plant capacities continue to increase and are continuing to develop large scale capacities with passage of time. The global average of an ethylene production plant is now around 540,000 tons per annum.

The average size of an ethylene production plant in Saudi Arabia is 892,000 tons per annum, in Netherlands it is 793,000 tons / year, in Canada 790,000 tons / year and in the US it is 745,000 tons / year.

50 percent of worldwide ethylene is produced from naphtha; ethane accounts for around 28 percent and the rest of the raw materials are accounted for by liquefied petroleum gas, condensate and middle distillates.

Chinese ethylene producers too are in pursuit of building large-scale capacities, mainly in the coastal belt and also in the central and western regions. China has the ability of building million-ton ethylene capacity by adopting its own technology through innovation.
