1,4-Butanediol (1,4-BD) Production Cost Analysis 2019

1,4-Butanediol (1,4-BD or commonly called BD) is an organic compound derived from butane by attaching alcohol groups at each end of its molecular chain. 1,4-BD, a stable isomer of butanediol, is a colourless, odourless, and viscous liquid, which is used as a solvent. It finds its application in the manufacturing of plastics and pharmaceuticals. 1,4-Butanediol's largest consumer is tetrahydrofuran (THF). Sizable quantities of 1,4-BD are also used to make gamma-butyrolactone (GBL).

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of 1,4-Butanediol (1,4-BD) production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
