Butadiene
Butadiene (also known as BD and 1,3-Butadiene) is a commodity product of the petrochemical industry. The majority of its worldwide production is used as a monomer in the manufacture of synthetic rubber, primarily styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), butadiene rubber (BR), nitrile rubber (NBR), and chloroprene rubber (CR). Butadiene may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Butadiene or Green Butadiene. 1,3-Butadiene is generally recovered from C4 streams that are generated as byproducts of ethylene manufacture by naphtha-based steam cracking. These C4 mixtures are composed mostly of Butadiene and butenes, with smaller amounts of butanes and acetylenes.
