Butanediol Production from Propylene | Butanediol E41A

This feasibility analysis is about 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from propylene in the USA using an allyl alcohol process. Initially, propylene is reacted with acetic acid and oxygen, producing allyl acetate. The allyl acetate is then hydrolyzed, yielding allyl alcohol. Finally, the allyl alcohol is converted by hydroformylation and hydrogenation to BDO.
