Ethylene Impurity analysis
In the petrochemical industry, ethylene is a very important in the refining process. It is involved in the synthesis of several chemicals such as polyethylene, polystyrene and alpha-olefins. Some of the important reagents produced by an Ethylene plant are propylene, butadiene and aromatics-rich pyrolysis gasoline. Ethylene is primarily used as raw material in manufacturing plastics. It is also used in the polymerization process. These process streams are sold to chemical processing plants where they are polymerized. Sulfur compounds poison the polymerization process employed in converting ethylene to polyethylene. Good quantitative analysis of impurities such as sulphur in ethylene is required.
