Chang said, however, that propene was not for public use, and that it was a petrochemical material.
To our knowledge, this work presents the first calculations of the dipole moments of the two fluorinated propene isomers.
While operating costs of a 557 kta plant ranged between USD 1,100 and USD 1,500 per ton of propene produced, the capital expenses varied from USD 290 million to USD 470 million, according to the region considered.
The origin of this different behavior shall be found in the fact that ethylene and 1-butene counits are able to cocrys-tallize in some extent with propene, independently of the thermal treatment.
Regional comparison studies, encompassing the US Gulf, Germany and Brazil, pointed out that operating expenses may vary from around USD 1,500 to USD 1,700 per ton of propene depending on the location, while capital expenses can differ more than USD 60 million in those regions.

While the fluorinated propene isomer refrigerants recently introduced, in particular, HFO-1234yf and HFO-1234ze(E), hold promise given their low GWP values (less than 10), they are in truth nothing more than HFCs: the molecular formula of HFO-1234yf is [CF.
