Bio-Butadiene Production Cost Analysis 2021

Earlier, butadiene was extracted from different petroleum feedstocks available in the market accordingly. But in the current scenario, butadiene is being extracted from ‘bio-based material resources, such as non-food biomass. It is done to reduce the dependency on the perishable feedstock. Thus, the butadiene derived from bio-based sources is known as bio-butadiene.

Bio-butadiene is extensively used in the manufacturing of the rubbers and plastics. In fact, it acts as one of the raw materials that help in the production of the butadiene. Tyre manufacturers are also extensively investing in the material, which explains why around two-third of the bio-butadiene product around the world is utilized in the rubber industry. Thus, bio-butadiene is extensively used in the production of green tyres, whose demand is rising due to the depleting natural resources and the growing demand for the production of sustainably derived products.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Bio-Butadiene 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).
