1,4-Butanediol
Butanediol (a.k.a. BDO, 1,4-Butanediol, Bio-Butanediol) refers to all butylene glycol isomers. The 1,4 Butanediol, the most common of them, is a versatile intermediate for the chemical industry mainly used in the production of polyurethanes and polybutylene terephthalate.

Capital Investment & Operating Cost of Butanediol Plants

Butanediol (a.k.a. BDO, 1,4-Butanediol, Bio-Butanediol) refers to all butylene glycol isomers. The 1,4 Butanediol, the most common of them, is a versatile intermediate for the chemical industry mainly used in the production of polyurethanes and polybutylene terephthalate.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Butanediol production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).

Bio-Butanediol Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E11A

This report presents the economics of bio-based 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from glucose syrup in the USA using a direct fermentation process similar to the one proposed by Genomatica.

Analysis Basis: United States   |   2019 Q1   |   107 pages   From $799

Bio-Butanediol Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E12A

This report examines the costs related to Butanediol production from glucose syrup. Initially, glucose is fermented to produce succinic acid, which is then hydrogenated to produce butanediol. The economic analysis also is based on a plant constructed in the USA.

Bio-Butanediol Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E13A

This report also concerns the bio-based BDO production in the USA. However, differently from the report “Butanediol E12A”, in this report, BDO is produced using a two-step process similar to Myriant/JM Davy technology. In this process, ammonium sulfate and tetrahydrofuran (THF) are generated as by-products.

Butanediol Production from Succinic Acid - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E21A

This feasibility study examines 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from succinic acid in the USA using a hydrogenation process similar to the one proposed by BioAmber.

Butanediol Production from Acetylene - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E31A

This report presents the economics of an 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production process from acetylene and formaldehyde in the USA. In this process, acetylene initially reacts with formaldehyde by addition, forming 1,4-butynediol. The butynediol is then hydrogenated to produce BDO. It is a typical acetylene-based Reppe process.

Butanediol Production from Propylene - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E41A

This feasibility analysis is about 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from propylene in the USA using an allyl alcohol process. Propanol and 2-methyl-1,3-propanediol are generated as by-products in the process.

Butanediol Production from Butadiene - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E51A

This assessment examines a technology similar to the process proposed by Mitsubishi Chemical for 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from butadiene (BD) in the USA.

Butanediol Production from Maleic Anhydride - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E61A

This report presents an economic analysis of 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from maleic anhydride in the USA using a process similar to the one proposed by JM Davy.

Butanediol Production from Propylene Oxide - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E71A

This report shows a techno-economic analysis related to the construction of a plant in the USA for 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from propylene oxide using a process similar to LyondellBasell. In this process, propylene oxide is first isomerized to allyl alcohol intermediate. The allyl alcohol then reacts with synthesis gas in a hydroformylation reaction, generating 4-hydroxybutyraldehyde, which is further hydrogenated to BDO.

Bio-Butanediol Production from Raw Sugar - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E81B

It examines bio-based BDO production using a fermentation process similar to the one proposed by Genomatica. Differently from the report “Butanediol E11A”, this report presents an economic analysis for a plant constructed in Germany using raw sugar as feedstock in the fermentation.

Bio-Butanediol Production from Raw Sugar - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E82B

This report presents the economics of bio-based 1,4-Butanediol production from raw sugar in Germany. The process examined is the same process as depicted in the report “Butanediol E12A”, involving two steps with succinic acid being an intermediate.

Bio-Butanediol Production from Raw Sugar - Cost Analysis | Butanediol E83B

This feasibility study analyses the same process examined in the report “Butanediol E13A”, with two exceptions (1) the plant is constructed in Germany; and (2) the raw material used in the fermentation is raw sugar.
