Polybutylene Succinate Production Cost Report

Polybutylene Succinate (PBS) is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family. Its excellent processability makes it easier to process it into melt blow, split yarn, multifilament, and monofilament in the textile field. It is also used in the field of plastics for injection-molded products, thereby being an ideal polymer with potential applications.

It is extensively utilized as a matrix polymer or along with polylactic acid (PLA) in various applications such as hygiene products, food and cosmetic packaging, plant pots, agricultural films, biomedical devices, bags, mulch film, fishing nets, and fishing lines. It is also employed in various disposable products like medical articles or tableware.

The market for polybutylene succinate is primarily driven by its applications in the textile and plastic industries, which manufacture melt-blow fibers, split yarn, and injection-molded products, respectively. Its extensive utilization in the manufacture of disposable items, food and cosmetic packaging, agricultural films, and biomedical devices remarkably amplifies its demand in the food, cosmetics, agriculture, and medical & healthcare industries.

Moreover, it is also employed in making hygiene products, bags, containers, and cutlery, which further enhances its market growth and propels its demand in the personal care and kitchen accessories industries. Moreover, the availability and cost of production of polybutylene succinate’s feedstock (succinic acid and butanediol (1,4-butanediol)) and methylene diphenyl diisocyanate), polybutylene succinate market prices, regulatory compliances, technological advancements, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, etc., are some of the elements that influence industrial polybutylene succinate procurement.

Raw Material for Polybutylene Succinate Production

According to the Polybutylene Succinate manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Polybutylene Succinate production include Succinic Acid-Butanediol (1,4-butanediol).

Manufacturing Process of Polybutylene Succinate

The extensive Polybutylene Succinate production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production from Esterification: This process involves the esterification and polycondensation reaction of succinic acid and butanediol in the presence of catalysts, forming polybutylene succinate as the final product.

Polybutylene Succinate or PBS is a commercially available, aliphatic biodegradable, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester which is among the most significant biodegradable polyesters synthesized through succinic acid and butanediol polycondensation.

Its reaction takes place using two steps, including esterification, which takes place between the diacid and the diol, followed by polycondensation, which is done under elevated temperatures forming high-molecular-weight PBS.

PBS has excellent properties like melt processability, biodegradability, and thermal and chemical resistance. It offers great promise as a biopolymer owing to its mechanical properties that can be compared to extensively used high-density polyethylene and isotactic polypropylene.

In the same way as polylactic acid (PLA), it completely decomposes into biomass, H2O and CO2, thereby being disposed of along with other organic waste. However, it has a lower melting point than PLA (115°C vs ~160°C). It is more inexpensive compared to other biopolymers (PLA, PBAT, and PHB.)
