Isobutylene
Isobutylene
Isobutene
Isobutylene (a.k.a. Isobutene) is one of the butylene isomers, a group of four-carbon olefins. The carbon-carbon double bond controls the chemistry of this group, acting as a substitute, and affecting the reactivity of the carbon atoms at the alpha positions through the formation of the allylic resonance structure. This structure can stabilize both positive and negative charges. Thus allylic carbons are more reactive to substitution and addition reactions than alkane carbons. As a consequence, Isobutylene is used as an intermediate in the production of MTBE, ETBE, isooctane, and methacrolein. Polymerization of Isobutylene produces butyl rubber.
The uses and applications of Isobutylene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Isobutylene are purity greater than 99%.

Updated Reports Examining Isobutylene Manufacturing Costs

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

Isobutylene Production from Crude C4s

This study presents the economics of Isobutylene production from a crude C4s stream in the United States., using an extraction process similar to Total Isobutylene Acid Extraction process. In this process, sulfuric acid reacts with isobutylene to form an alcohol that is separated from the crude C4 raw material and, through a dehydration step, isobutylene is recovered.

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.
