Butene Production Cost Analysis 2020
Butene, which is also known as butylene, belongs to a series of alkenes and is an organic compound. The word butene may imply any of the individual chemical compounds or a mixture of them. They are colourless and odourless gases, found in crude oil as a minor constituent, in quantities too small for viable extraction. They are highly flammable in nature. These gases can be liquefied by reducing the heat or raising the pressure on them, like pressurised butene.
Butene is derived by catalytic cracking of long-chain hydrocarbons left during the refining of crude oil. Butene is used as the monomer for polybutene, which is more expensive than alternatives with shorter carbon chains like that of polypropylene. Polybutene is hence widely used as a copolymer where it is mixed with another polymer, either during or after reaction, for example, in hot-melt adhesives. As butene has double bonds, it acts as a monomer while forming polymers, further having other uses as petrochemical intermediates. It is also used in the production of synthetic rubber.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Butene 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).
