Isoprene (also known as 2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene) is a natural product from plants that can be industrially obtained as a by-product of the ethylene production or by the thermal cracking of oil or naphtha. Almost all Isoprene produced is consumed in the preparation of polymers or copolymers, mainly cis-polyisoprene, which resembles natural rubber and it is widely used in rubber applications.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Isoprene 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).
