Have you ever wondered how crude oil or natural gas is processed, and how it becomes the building blocks of products we use everyday? This infographic gives a basic snapshot of how petrochemical manufacturing works.
AFPM members know that petrochemicals are invaluable to the production of countless consumer products. But many Americans may not realize how much they rely on xylene, benzene, butadiene, toluene, ethylene and propylene when they opt to spend time outside.

As industries with deep-running safety cultures and critical roles in product supply chains, the fuel and petrochemical industries are uniquely positioned to share vital products with some of those most in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
