Petrochemicals are toxic chemicals made from the biproducts of refining gasoline. All foam, memory foam and gel are made from these chemicals. Polyurethane foam is made from two types of chemicals, poloys and urethanes, which are all petrochemical-based. Although you can find some hybrid plant-based polyurethane foams and gels these foams are still 90% petrochemical-based. To make a plant-based hybrid foam the foam manufacturer replaces about 5-10% of the petrochemical poloys and adds some other oil such as coconut, soy linseed etc.

Global ethylene production was 190 million tonnes and propylene was 120 million tonnes in 2019. Aromatics production is approximately 70 million tonnes. The largest petrochemical industries are located in the USA and Western Europe; however, major growth in new production capacity is in the Middle East and Asia. There is substantial inter-regional petrochemical trade.
Like commodity chemicals, petrochemicals are made on a very large scale. Petrochemical manufacturing units differ from commodity chemical plants in that they often produce a number of related products. Compare this with specialty chemical and fine chemical manufacture where products are made in discrete batch processes.
Petrochemicals are predominantly made in a few manufacturing locations around the world, for example in Jubail & Yanbu Industrial Cities in Saudi Arabia, Texas & Louisiana in the US, in Teesside in the Northeast of England in the United Kingdom, in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, in Jamnagar, Dahej in Gujarat, India and in Singapore. Not all of the petrochemical or commodity chemical materials produced by the chemical industry are made in one single location but groups of related materials are often made in adjacent manufacturing plants to induce industrial symbiosis as well as material and utility efficiency and other economies of scale. This is known in chemical engineering terminology as integrated manufacturing. Specialty and fine chemical companies are sometimes found in similar manufacturing locations as petrochemicals but, in most cases, they do not need the same level of large-scale infrastructure (e.g., pipelines, storage, ports, and power, etc.) and therefore can be found in multi-sector business parks.
The large-scale petrochemical manufacturing locations have clusters of manufacturing units that share utilities and large-scale infrastructures such as power stations, storage tanks, port facilities, road and rail terminals. In the United Kingdom, for example, there are 4 main locations for such manufacturing: near the River Mersey in North West England, on the Humber on the East coast of Yorkshire, in Grangemouth near the Firth of Forth in Scotland, and in Teesside as part of the Northeast of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC). To demonstrate the clustering and integration, some 50% of the United Kingdom's petrochemical and commodity chemicals are produced by the NEPIC industry cluster companies in Teesside.
Speaker: Lee Marotta, Sr. GC Product Specialist, PerkinElmerLee has been an analytical chemist for over 20 years. Early in her career, she worked at Exxon Corporate Research developing new methods for the petroleum industry. She now works for PerkinElmer as a GC, GC/MS Application Specialist developing new methods and instrumentation for a variety of markets, including the petrochemical industry. During 2010, Lee presented new application work at two different ASTM petrochemical committees and received committee approval to continue with this development. An expert in gas chromatography, Lee has published dozens of gas chromatography applications, presented numerous papers and posters on an annual basis at the major North American chromatography conferences, and is very highly regarded in her field.This session is now closed, see the latest eLearning events HERE>>

With 70 years of experience in steam cracking and other petrochemical technologies, Linde Engineering has licensed and/or built more than 70 steam crackers worldwide. Since then, Linde has continually improved, scaled, and optimized the steam cracking technology to meet the most stringent safety, economic and environmental/climate protection requirements. In recent years Linde has developed a roadmap and toolbox of decarbonization measures which is continuously improved and extended in order to support the required transformation of the petrochemical industry towards zero GHG emissions.
The collaboration between Coolbrook and Linde Engineering marks a significant step towards achieving carbon-free ethylene production, reducing global CO2 emissions, improving energy efficiency, and increasing ethylene yield compared to traditional cracker technologies.
As consumers grow increasingly concerned about their hygiene issues, the cosmetics and personal care industries flourish. Hence, the issue of household petrochemicals has developed into a worldwide problem at an unprecedented speed. Yet ignorance prevails, as society fails to acknowledge this incontrovertible truth. 59ce067264
