Propylene is one of the most important basic petrochemicals, which is used as
a raw material of polypropylene, acrylonitrile, octanol, acrylic acid and propylene oxide.

Taekwang established the propylene plant in April 1997. This propylene is used as
main raw material of our own acrylonitrile plant with the balance volume supplied
for both of domestic and overseas customers.

Taekwang introduced the most advanced production method of
dehydrogenation process, and now leading the global petrochemical industry
based on high level of productivity and stability in its manufacturing processes.
