Butanol
Butanol
Butyl Alcohol
BuOH
Butanol (a.k.a. Butyl Alcohol, BuOH, Bio-Butanol) encompass the aliphatic saturated C4 alcohols of empirical formula C4H10O. Among five structurally isomeric alcohols, 1-Butanol (or n-Butanol) and isobutanol (2-methyl-1-propanol) are the ones most commercially relevant, being used in a wide range of applications. Actually, it is worth noting that 1-butanol production plants also can be used for the manufacture of 2-methyl-1-propanol. It is a colorless liquid with vinous odor. Normal butanol is found naturally as a fermentation product of carbohydrates, as well as a crude oil derivative, and its highly soluble in water. The alcohol is present in a variety of foods and beverages, one of its main uses. It is also used extensively as an industrial intermediate in many processes.

Bio-Butanol Production from Corn | Butanol E11A

This report presents the economics of bio-based Butanol production from corn in the USA. The process under analysis is a conventional Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) fermentation process. Initially, corn undergoes wet milling to separate starch, which is hydrolyzed in two steps. Glucose is fermented to produce butanol, acetone and ethanol.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 90 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Butanol E11A target a 90 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Butanol Production from Propylene and Syngas | Butanol E21A

This report presents an economic analysis of n-Butanol production from propylene and syngas, assuming a plant located on the US Gulf Coast. The process under analysis is similar to the LP OXO technology jointly licensed by JM Davy and Dow, employing Selector 30 catalyst. This process comprises hydroformylation of propylene and n-butyraldehyde hydrogenation.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Butanol E21A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Butanol Production from Ethanol | Butanol E31A

The report shows an economic analysis of the construction of an industrial plant in the USA for n-Butanol production. In the process reviewed ethanol is dimerized into n-Butanol via the Guerbet reaction. This reaction is composed by dehydrogenation, aldol condensation and hydrogenation.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 80 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Butanol E31A target a 80 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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-Butanol Production from Raw Sugar | Butanol E41B

This report examines a conventional Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) fermentation process. Differently from the report “Butanol E11A”, this economic analysis assumes a plant located in Germany using raw sugar as feedstock. In this process, raw sugar is fermented to butanol, acetone and ethanol by a novel strain of Clostridium. Each product is separated.

Details: 90 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $999

The cost analyses presented in the report Butanol E41B target a 90 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Butanol Production from Butyraldehyde | Butanol E51A

This study analyzes the costs for n-Butanol production from butyraldehyde. In this process, n-butyraldehyde is hydrogenated generating n-Butanol. The economic analysis is based on a plant constructed in the USA.

Details: 160 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Butanol E51A target a 160 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Butanol Production from Propylene and Syngas | Butanol E61A
