Butadiene Rubber
Butadiene Rubber (a.k.a. BR, PolybutadieneRubber) is a synthetic rubber made from monomer 1,3-butadiene. Being one of the largest volume synthetic rubber produced, this elastomeric polymer can have a variety of different properties depending on the ratio of its microstructural units and its tacticity. It is mostly used in the manufacture of tires due to its resistance to wear. Tire production consumes about 70% of the polybutadiene produced worldwide.
The uses and applications of Butadiene Rubber may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Butadiene Rubber are high cis polybutadiene; low cis polybutadiene; high vinyl polybutadiene; and high trans polybutadiene.

Updated Reports Examining Butadiene Rubber Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Butadiene Rubber manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Butadiene Rubber process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Butadiene Rubber production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Polybutadiene Production from Butadiene

This report presents the economics of Polybutadiene production from butadiene in the United States, via a typical solution process. In this process, butadiene is polymerized in the presence of a Ziegler-Natta catalyst and a solvent to produce Polybutadiene.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report BR E11A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Polybutadiene Production from n-Butane

This report presents an economic analysis of an integrated unit for producing Polybutadiene starting from n-butane located in the United States. Initially, n-butane is dehydrogenated to butadiene, using a process similar to Lummus Catadiene. Then, the butadiene is polymerized to polybutadiene via a typical solution process.

The cost analyses presented in the report BR E21A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Bio-Polybutadiene Production from Glucose

This report analyses the economics of an integrated plant producing Polybutadiene from glucose in the United States. In this process, glucose is converted to butadiene via a direct aerobic fermentation process similar to the one proposed by Global Bioenergies. Then, the butadiene is polymerized to polybutadiene via a typical solution process.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report BR E31A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Bio-Polybutadiene Production from Raw Sugar

This report analyses the economics of an integrated plant producing Polybutadiene from raw sugar in Germany. In this process, raw sugar is hydrolyzed to glucose and fructose (invert sugars), which are fermented to butadiene via a direct aerobic fermentation process similar to the one proposed by Global Bioenergies. Then, the butadiene is polymerized to polybutadiene via a typical solution process.

Details: 120 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report BR E41B target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) Germany-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

It is mostly used in the manufacture of tires due to its resistance to wear. Tire production consumes about 70% of the polybutadiene produced worldwide.

Butadiene Rubber Uses. The uses and applications of Butadiene Rubber may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Butadiene Rubber are high cis polybutadiene; low cis polybutadiene; high vinyl polybutadiene; and high trans polybutadiene.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
