Can propylene be used as a co-feed to H2SO4 Alkylation plant? The plant is designed for C4= with iso-C4 case only. What are the pros and cons of co-feeding?

Propane/propylene stream is commonly included in the feed. The unit will need to be capable of yielding propane as a product. E-mail me for the yield table. You can use the data in your refinery LP model to compare the economics and analyze the payout of any physical modifications needed.
