Benzene is an organic chemical compound. It is an aromatic hydrocarbon composed of 6 carbon atoms in a ring, with 1 hydrogen atom attached to each carbon atom, with the molecular formula C6h5.

Benzene is a natural constituent of crude oil, and is one of the most basic petrochemicals. It is a colorless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell.

Benzene is an important precursor to basic industrial chemicals including drugs, plastics, synthetic rubber, and dyes. It is mainly used as an intermediate chemical to make downstream industrial chemicals to be further used in value chain for manufacturer of end use products. Its most widely-produced derivatives include-

  • Styrene, used to make polymers, plastics and synthetic rubber
  • Phenol (via cumene), for drugs, synthetic resins and adhesives
  • Cyclohexane, used for Caprolactum in manufacture of Nylon
  • Nitrobenzene for Aniline used for MDI (for polyurethane) and dyestuffs
  • Chlorobenzene, used for pesticides (DDT) , herbicides and solvents
  • Alkyl Benzene, for LAB Sulphonate used for laundry detergents & industrial cleaners

Carbon black feed stock (CBFS) is the heavy hydrocarbon mix (above C9 to C15) bottom product of Naphtha cracker unit. CBFS is the key raw material used to manufacture carbon black. Roughly 2.2 tonnes of CBFS is required to produce one tonne of carbon black. Carbon black is basically used as a reinforcing agent in rubber products such as tyres, tubes, conveyer belts, cables and other mechanical rubber goods.

CBFS is also used as heating Fuel Oil in several industrial units.

HPL can produce 89 KTPA of CBFS which is sold to both Carbon Black manufacturing and for fuel oil usage.

 

HPL CBFS Quality USP :

 
  • Low heavy metals
  • Low sulphur
 
 

Cyclopentane is a flammable alicyclic hydrocarbon with chemical formula C5H10.

Cyclopentane is mainly used as Green blowing agent in Polyurethane foam used for thermal insulation in refrigerators, freezers, water heaters, insulated pipes & roofs, construction panels, etc. Cyclopentane is also used in the manufacture of resin, adhesives, pharma intermediate and as a gasoline additive as octane booster.

Cyclopentane being halogen free compound is environment friendly with Zero-Ozone Depletion Potential and thus is fast replacing Chloro Fluoro Carbon (CFC ) applications in refrigeration and thermal insulation.

HPL with 5.2 KTPA capacity is one of the largest producer of Cyclopentane in the world with licence from IFP, France.

 

HPL Cyclopentane Quality USP is :

  • High purity, 97 wt % Min
  • Non-traceable Benzene content
  • Environment friendly (Zero Ozone Depletion Potential)
  • High performance due high insulation efficiency & excellent adhesion

Cyclopentane is sold both in domestic market in India and also exported from Haldia port to all major markets of the world.

 
 
 

Motor Spirit or Motor Gasoline is a petroleum-derived liquid mixture consisting mostly of aliphatic hydrocarbons and also aromatic hydrocarbons like toluene or iso-octane to increase octane ratings and oxygenates to reduce toxic carbon emissions, primarily used as fuel in internal combustion engines.

HPL makes Motor Spirit by adequate blending of Hydrogenated Pyrolysis Gasoline (HPG) with other available hydrocarbon streams like C5 mix and C6 raffinate.
