1,3-Butadiene Production Cost Reports


1,3-Butadiene production cost report provides a comprehensive analysis and know-how for setting up a  1,3-Butadiene production plant. The study covers all the requisite aspects that one needs to know for the production of  1,3-Butadiene. This includes manufacturing processes, raw material requirements, utility requirements, infrastructure requirements, machinery and technology requirements, manpower requirements, packaging requirements, transportation requirements, etc.

The report also provides detailed insights into project economics including capital investments, project funding, operating expenses, income and expenditure projections, fixed costs vs variable costs, direct and indirect costs, expected ROI and NPV, profit and loss account, financial analysis, etc.  

1,3-butadiene, with the chemical formula C4H6, is a simple conjugated diene and a synthetic gas made by petroleum processing. Its exposure usually occurs in the workspace in industries like synthetic elastomer production, secondary lead smelting, petroleum refining, agricultural fungicides, water treatment, production of raw material for nylon, the use of fossil fuels as well as from polluted air and water near chemical, automobile exhaust, plastic or rubber facilities, food contaminated from plastic or rubber containers, and cigarette smoke. This exposure can lead to irritation in the nasal passage, eyes, and throat.

It is a colourless gas which is practically not soluble in water but is soluble in ether, ethanol, benzene, and acetone. Upon heating, it releases acrid fumes and is flammable. It oxidizes in the presence of air to form explosive peroxides. It has a mild gasoline-like odour. Its molecular Weight is 54.09, and its molar mass is 54.09 g/mol. It has a liquid density of 0.64 g/cm³ at -6 °C. Its melting, and boiling points are -108.9 °C (164.3 K) and -4.4 °C (268.8 K).

The 1,3-Butadiene industry is propelling forward due to its main application in producing synthetic rubber as a monomer. It is also used as a monomer to make several kinds of polymers and copolymers and for producing industrial chemicals as a chemical intermediate which furthers the market's growth. It also finds use in making plastics like acrylics and is found in gasoline in small amounts.

Also, it is used in the production of Styrene-butadiene latex (SB latex) which is used for making paper coatings and products that have properties like high-gloss, brightness and opacity; Neoprene, a synthetic rubber product; Nitrile rubber, or nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR), which is an oil-resistant synthetic rubber which finds use in making automotive gaskets and seals, hoses, gloves etc., which further the industry's expansion.
