Ethyl Tert-Butyl Ether
Ethyl Tert-Butyl Ether
ETBE
2-Ethoxy-2-Methyl-Propane
Ethyl Tert-Butyl Ether (a.k.a. ETBE, 2-Ethoxy-2-Methyl-Propane) is an aliphatic ether having ethyl and tert-butyl as the two alkyl components, manufactured by etherification of isobutylene with ethanol, in the presence of an acidic ion-exchange resin catalyst. ETBE has a lower Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) and better octane properties than MTBE. As a pure component, ETBE appears as clear light yellow liquid.

ETBE Production from Raffinate-1 | ETBE E11C

This study provides an economical analysis of Ethyl tert-Butyl Ether (ETBE) production from a raffinate-1 stream and ethanol using a process similar to UOP's Ethermax process for isobutylene etherification in China. In this process, isobutylene from raffinate-1 is submitted to etherification with ethanol in a conventional reactor and in a reactive distillation column.

The cost analyses presented in the report ETBE E11C target a 700 kta (kilometric tons per annun) China-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

ETBE Production from FCC C4 Raffinate | ETBE E21C

This study presents an economical analysis of Ethyl tert-Butyl Ether (ETBE) production from FCC C4 raffinate and ethanol using a process similar to UOP's Ethermax process for isobutylene etherification in China. In this process, the etherification reaction of isobutylene from FCC C4 raffinate stream with ethanol is conducted in two steps, the first step being in a conventional reactor and the second in a reactive distillation column.

The cost analyses presented in the report ETBE E21C target a 700 kta (kilometric tons per annun) China-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

ETBE Production from Butane | ETBE E31A

This report presents the feasibility analysis of an on-purpose Ethyl tert-Butyl Ether (ETBE) production plant from butane and ethanol in the USA. Initially, n-butane is isomerized to isobutane, which is then subjected to a dehydrogenation, yielding isobutylene. In the final step, generated isobutylene and ethanol react leading to the formation of ETBE. These steps are similar to Butamer, Oleflex and Ethermax processes in sequence.

Details: 700 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $1,499

The cost analyses presented in the report ETBE E31A target a 700 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.

ETBE Production from Isobutylene | ETBE E41A

This study presents an economical analysis of Ethyl tert-Butyl Ether (ETBE) production from butane and ethanol in the USA. In this process, isobutylene obtained from a butane hydrogenation plant is submitted to a etherification reaction with ethanol conducted in two steps. The first step is in a conventional reactor and the second in a reactive distillation column.

Details: 700 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report ETBE E41A target a 700 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.
