2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene
Isoprene (a.k.a. 2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene) is an unsaturated hydrocarbon produced by many plants and animals. It exists extensively in nature, being found in several compounds isolated from animal and plant materials such as terpenes, camphors, and vitamins. This chemical compound had little commercial importance until the Second World War, due to its relatively high production costs vis a vis synthetic rubber manufacturing (its potential market). Since then, methods for Isoprene production from petrochemical sources were improved, and nowadays several routes have been practiced commercially, based on propylene, isobutylene-formaldehyde, isopentane, acetone-acetylene, etc.

Isoprene Production from Isobutylene

This report presents the economics of Isoprene production from isobutylene (contained in a C4 cut stream) and formaldehyde in the United States via a typical two-step carbonylation process. Initially, isobutylene is reacted with formaldehyde forming 4,4-dimethyl-1,3-metadioxane (4-4 DMD). This intermediate is then cracked, producing Isoprene.

The cost analyses presented in the report Isoprene E41A target a 50 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.

Isoprene Production from Acetylene and Acetone

This study concerns the economics of Isoprene production from acetylene and acetone in the United States using a process similar to a Snamprogetti Acetylene-based process. Initially, acetylene and acetone undergo an addition reaction forming methylbutynol. This chemical is then subjected to a selective hydrogenation forming methylbutenol, which is finally dehydrated yielding Isoprene and water.
