What are Ethane and Ethylene?

Ethane is a heavy and saturated hydrocarbon chemical compound. Its primary use is as a petrochemical feedstock for the production of ethylene by the process of steam cracking. As a fuel source, it is very attractive due to its abundance and relatively low price. It is also used in the manufacturing of plastics, anti-freeze, and detergents.

Ethylene is another hydrocarbon used widely in the chemical industry, and can be used as a refrigerant, especially in LNG plants. As a natural plant hormone, it is also used in the agricultural industry to induce the ripening of fruits.
