Butyraldehyde
Butyraldehyde
Butanal
Butyraldehyde (a.k.a. Butanal) is a saturated aliphatic aldehyde with a pungent penetrating odor, soluble in most organic solvents, such as alcohols, ethers, and benzene, but insoluble in water. Butyraldehyde is a colorless, flammable liquid and highly reactive intermediate that serves as a versatile building block for many chemical syntheses. The main process used for manufacturing Butyraldehyde consists in the hydroformilation (Oxo Synthesis) of propylene, in which it is treated with synthesis gas in the presence of a catalyst. Other processes, such as the dehydrogenation of butanol and the partial reduction of crotonaldehyde, are obsolete.
The uses and applications of Butyraldehyde may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Butyraldehyde are water saturated n-Butyraldehyde (96 wt % minimum purity) and dry n-Butyraldehyde (99 wt % minimum purity).

Updated Reports Examining Butyraldehyde Manufacturing Costs

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

Butyraldehyde from Propylene and Syngas (N/Iso Ratio of 30:1)

This report presents an economic analysis of n-Butyraldehyde production from propylene and syngas, assuming a plant located in the United States. The process under analysis is a propylene hydroformylation similar to the LP OXO technology jointly licensed by JM Davy and Dow, employing Selector 30 catalyst. The production ratio of n- to iso-butyraldehyde is about 30.

Details: 160 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Butyraldehyde E11A target a 160 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.

Butyraldehyde from Propylene and Syngas (N/Iso Ratio of 10:1)

This feasibility study approaches n-Butyraldehyde production from propylene and syngas, assuming a plant located in the United States. The process under analysis is a propylene hydroformylation similar to the LP OXO technology jointly developed by JM Davy and Union Carbide, employing Selector 10 catalyst. The production ratio of n- to iso-butyraldehyde is about 10.

Details: 160 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Butyraldehyde E21A target a 160 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.

Butyraldehyde from Propylene and Syngas (N/Iso Ratio of 4:1)

This report concerns the costs associated with the production of n-Butyraldehyde from propylene and syngas. The process under analysis is a propylene hydroformylation similar to the technology jointly developed by Rhodia (former Rhône-Poulenc) and Ruhrchemie. The economic analysis presented assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 160 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Butyraldehyde E31A target a 160 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.

Butyraldehyde Uses. The uses and applications of Butyraldehyde may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Butyraldehyde are water saturated n-Butyraldehyde (96 wt % minimum purity) and dry n-Butyraldehyde (99 wt % minimum purity).

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.
