⇒ One method of unsaturated production is steam cracking in which saturated hydrocarbons are broken down into smaller, often unsaturated,
hydrocarbons. ⇒ Steam cracking is one method of unsaturated production used for producing alkenes. ⇒ Unsaturated production is the production of smaller, unsaturated hydrocarbons from saturated hydrocarbons,
for example producing alkenes such as ethane and propene.
