    Hello guys!

    I'm studying about different manners of producing polypropylene, and I've found a lot of them.

    Could you tell me what do you think about it? What's the better, and what's more profitable if you are constructing a plant, and anything else?

    Well, I can't tell you the best way to produce that kind of material, since I don't produce it as an industrial unit. But I know that there are three traditional ways to produce polypropylene.
    Gas phase process, bulk process or hydrocarbon slurry.

    About the profitability, I'd rather take a look at which technologies some companies are already using. For example, Dow Chemical uses Gas Phase Process, while Exxon and LyondellBassell uses Bulk phase process.

    I've read some news and they said that US Gulf Coast seems to be a good place for a plant, since there's a lot of chemical plants over there. I think you should search about these plants to know what method they use over there.
