Butanol
n-Butanol (also known as Butyl Alcohol and BuOH) is an alcohol applied in the production of butyl acrylates to supply the coatings and adhesives industries. It is also used in plasticizers or directly as a solvent. It is commercially produced from propylene and syngas by chemical synthesis. Butanol may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Butanol or Green Butanol. Due to the increasing interest in biofuels development, the production of bio-based butanol is being revisited and improved. Bio-butanol is an attractive renewable fuel that can be produced from fermentation of sugars derived from agricultural feedstock (e.g., corn and sugarcane).

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Butanol 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-Butanol Production from Corn - Cost Analysis | Butanol E11A
This report presents the economics of bio-based Butanol production from corn. The process under analysis is a conventional Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) fermentation process. The economic assessment assumes a plant located in the USA.

Analysis Basis: USA   |   2019 Q1   |   101 pages   Starting at $899

Butanol Production from Propylene and Syngas - Cost Analysis | 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.

Analysis Basis: USA   |   2019 Q1   |   101 pages   Starting at $899

Butanol Production from Ethanol - Cost Analysis | 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.

Bio-Butanol Production from Raw Sugar - Cost Analysis | Butanol E41B
This report examines a conventional Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) fermentation process. Differently from the report “Butanol E11A”, the economic analysis presented in this report assumes a plant located in Germany using raw sugar as feedstock.

Analysis Basis: Germany   |   2019 Q1   |   101 pages   Starting at $1,099

Butanol Production from Butyraldehyde - Cost Analysis | Butanol E51A
This study analyzes the costs for n-Butanol production from butyraldehyde. The economic analysis is based on a plant constructed in the USA.

Analysis Basis: USA   |   2019 Q1   |   101 pages   Starting at $899

Butanol Production from Propylene and Syngas - Cost Analysis | Butanol E61A
This feasibility study also approaches 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 developed by JM Davy and Union Carbide, employing Selector 10 catalyst.

Analysis Basis: USA   |   2019 Q1   |   101 pages   Starting at $1,199

Butanol Production from Propylene and Syngas - Cost Analysis | Butanol E71A
This report also concerns the costs associated with the production of n-Butanol from propylene and syngas. The process under analysis is similar to the technology jointly developed by Rhodia (former Rhône-Poulenc) and Ruhrchemie. The economic analysis presented assumes a plant located on the US Gulf Coast.
