Butyric Acid Production Cost Report

Butyric Acid is a saturated fatty acid which is frequently used acid in the chemical and plastic manufacturing industries. It is well-known for its characteristic unpleasant odor. The compound is extensively employed as a flavoring agent to enhance the taste of butter and fats. It is also used in producing esters, which are further employed as additives to enhance fruit fragrances in aromatics.

Moreover, butyric Acid is crucial in the production of thermoplastics like cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB), a polymer that exhibits excellent temperature resistance, enhanced hydrophobicity, and high flexibility. It is also used to improve the quality of butanol, a non-toxic biofuel. Furthermore, butyric Acid is utilized in the treatment of various severe diseases, such as colon cancer, stomach issues, hemoglobinopathies, etc.

The rising demand for butyric acid as a vital ingredient in the production of chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, food and biofuel products are what primarily drives the market for this commodity. It is utilized in the production of perfumes and various industrial chemical compounds on a commercial scale. Its primary usage as a flavouring agent and a source of esters in the production of food and aromatic products, respectively increases its demand in the chemical and food industry.

It is also an in-demand commodity for the medical sector as it used to manufacture certain pharmaceutical drugs. Furthermore, its demand in the plastic, automobile and chemical industries is increased by its use in the manufacturing of thermoplastics like cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB), a polymer that is widely used in the production of tinted sheets, durable coatings, steering wheels, etc.

Likewise, industrial butyric acid procurement is governed by various factors, including the availability and production cost of its feedstock (butyraldehyde), the market prices of butyric acid, its distribution (both transportation and trading activities), and logistics, etc. The various uses of butyric acid in these sectors demonstrate the great demand for this commodity and its significance as a raw material with a wide range of industrial and medicinal applications.

Raw Material for Butyric Acid Production

According to the butyric acid manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for butyric acid production include butyraldehyde.

Manufacturing Process of Butyric Acid

The extensive butyric acid production cost report consists of this major industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production from Oxidation of Butyraldehyde: The process initiates with the oxidation of butyraldehyde, which results in the production of butyric acid in an aqueous solution at a temperature of approximately 100°C.

Butyric Acid (C4H8O2) is a monoclinic chemical compound that is commercially obtained through the oxidation of butyraldehyde. The compound is a colorless liquid with an unpleasant odor, primarily due to the presence of fatty acids. It consists of four carbon, eight hydrogen, and two oxygen atoms. Butyric Acid, also known as butanoic acid, is widely used in the large-scale production of esters and plastic products. This compound is an alkyl carboxylic acid, commonly referred to as a fatty acid ester, which contributes to the unpleasant odor found in fats and oil products.

It has a molecular composition with a single-double bond between the carbon and oxygen atoms of the carboxylic acid group. Often known as butyrates, it is a linear compound with a density of approximately 0.952 g/cm3 at room temperature. Its melting point is around -5.1°C, and its boiling point is about 163.7°C. Butyric Acid crystallizes in a monoclinic structure and produces a foul odor during hydrolysis.
