Isobutane
Isobutane
Isobutane is the simplest alkane with a tertiary carbon. It is a colorless gas with a faint petroleum-like odor, shipped as a liquefied gas under vapor pressure. It is an important component of natural gasoline, refinery gases, wet natural gas, and is also obtained by isomerization of butane. Isobutane is highly flammable and presents explosive risk.
The uses and applications of Isobutane may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Isobutane are technical grade (N1.5 - 95 mol% concentration of Isobutane); pure grade (N2.0 - 99 mol% concentration of Isobutane; and instrument grade (N2.5 - 99.5 mol% concentration of Isobutane).

Updated Reports Examining Isobutane Manufacturing Costs

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

Isobutane Production

This report examines the costs incurring from producing Isobutane via catalytic isomerization of n-butane. n-Butane is dehydrogenated to 1-butene, which is then rearranged to isobutylene. Finally, isobutylene is hydrogenated producing isobutane. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the United States.

About Isobutane. Isobutane is the simplest alkane with a tertiary carbon. It is a colorless gas with a faint petroleum-like odor, shipped as a liquefied gas under vapor pressure. It is an important component of natural gasoline, refinery gases, wet natural gas, and is also obtained by isomerization of butane. Isobutane is highly flammable and presents explosive risk.

Isobutane Uses. The uses and applications of Isobutane may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Isobutane are technical grade (N1.5 - 95 mol% concentration of Isobutane); pure grade (N2.0 - 99 mol% concentration of Isobutane; and instrument grade (N2.5 - 99.5 mol% concentration of Isobutane).

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.
