Basic material for the chemical industry

BTX (Benzene, Toluene, Xylene), one of the main aromatic hydrocarbon compounds, is a colorless liquid with a unique scent that is widely used as a base material in the chemical industry.

Benzene is combined with other molecules to produce new chemicals. It is widely used to make various products for daily use such as plastics, synthetic rubbers, detergents, and agricultural pesticides. Toluene and xylene are used as solvents to dissolve chemical products to produce paint and ink. OCI is the nation’s only BTX manufacturer that use byproducts from steelmaking. BTX is produced with the hydrogenation of coke oven light oil, a byproduct from steel production, by reaction under high temperature and pressure. Impurities and unsaturated hydrocarbons are extracted by extractive distillation.
