ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the chemical benzene. Benzene, which is mainly used to make styrene, phenol and chlorobenzenes, is a clear, highly flammable liquid and a suspected carcinogen. In Europe, the main source of benzene is from pyrolysis gasoline co-produced in the steam cracking of naphtha, gasoil or condensates to make olefins. The chemical's majority of investment is in Asia and the Middle East, but Asian supply remains below demand.
