Propane dehydrogenation plant to be built in Texas

March 4, 2013 By    

C3 Petrochemicals LLC plans to build a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant near Alvin, Texas, to produce polymer-grade propylene and chemical-grade propylene, according to an air quality permit application the company filed with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Using propane as its feedstock, the PDH plant will produce ethane, ethylene and methane. The plant will be built on the grounds of Ascend Performance Materials, a private nylon manufacturer in Chocolate Bayou, Texas. Construction will begin next January.
