Butadiene Production Cost Analysis 2020

Butadiene is a colourless gas, which can be easily be condensed to liquid. Furthermore, the molecule can be viewed as the union of two vinyl groups. It is important industrially as a monomer in the production of synthetic rubber. One of the features of butadiene is that it can be polymerized to polybutadiene rubber (BR). Butadiene is, in fact, one of the most versatile raw materials to be used in the production of a wide variety of synthetic rubbers and polymer resins. It is also used in a few chemical intermediates as well.

The largest use for butadiene can be seen in the manufacturing of styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), which is principally used in the manufacturing of automobile tyres. Moreover, SBR is also used in materials such as adhesives, sealants, coatings, and rubber articles like shoe soles.

Butadiene is one of the components used in the manufacturing of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), which is the largest-volume engineering thermoplastic resin. Some other examples of polymers made from butadiene mostly involves styrene-butadiene (SB) copolymer latex, which is used in paper coatings, carpet back coatings, foam mattresses, and finally, adhesives. 

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