Propane Dehydrogenation


  • Propane Dehydrogenation - A catalytic process that converts propane into propylene and hydrogen (byproduct).
  • Engines, oxy-gas torches, barbecues, portable stoves, and residential central heating and cooking units in recreational vehicles use propane as a fuel source.
  • Dehydrogenation Process - This process converts propane to propylene on a fixed-bed of chromia-alumina catalyst in order to recycle the unconverted propane and leave propylene as the net product. The chemical reaction occurs during the gaseous phase at high temperatures (ranging from 540 to 820 degrees C) that causes an endothermic equilibrium reaction. 
  • 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
