This process produces acrylic acid from low purity propylene and propane 85%, 15% purity by mass respectively as a feedstock. This is more cost effective than high purity propylene that is used commonly. The process consumes 6 ton/hr of feedstock and produces 7.9 ton/hr of acrylic acid and 66805 ton/yr in total with 99.7% purity by mass.
