Olefins

With the high market demand for olefins products, such as ethylene and propylene, producers are pressured to maximize the value of their feedstocks and deliver on-time, high-quality products. KBR's olefins technologies provide flexible solutions for low capital, high efficiency product recovery.

KBR has been a leader in olefin plant design, construction and technology development for more than 50 years. Since 1990, over 20 new ethylene plants with a combined capacity of 13 million metric tons per year have been brought on-stream using KBR's cost-effective, cracking technologies and flexible plant designs to produce ethylene, propylene and other byproducts from a variety of feedstocks.

KBR's olefins technology portfolio currently contains two technology options for olefins production, with the optimum selection dependent on available feedstocks and desired olefin product mix.
