Abstract: The ethylene/propylene production industry has been profoundly changed due to the frac gas production. A large number of world class gas steam crackers are being designed or under construction in the Gulf Coast Region and beyond. Although the wastewater production of these units is not as complex compared with integrated refinery/naphtha cracker, it has unique characteristics which demands careful evaluations.
