Ethyl-Tert-butyl Ether Production Cost Analysis 2021

Ethyl-tert-butyl ether, also known as ETBE, is widely utilised as an oxygenate gasoline additive in the creation of gasoline from crude oil. It is an ether and a volatile organic compound. ETBE provides equal or higher air quality advantages than ethanol while being technically as well as logistically low challenging. Unlike ethanol, ETBE does not cause the evaporation of gasoline, which is causes smog, and does not absorb moisture from the surrounding air. Bio-ETBE is being used extensively in regions like the EU in fuel distribution systems as well as conventional vehicles, with it accounting for the majority of bioethanol in the region's gasoline market.

ETBE is produced commercially by the acidic etherification of isobutylene with ethanol at a temperature somewhere between 30–110 °C and a pressure of 0,8–1,3 MPa. This reaction is carried out with an acidic ion-exchange resin as a catalyst.
