Maleic Anhydride (also known as MAN) is a multifunctional chemical intermediate with applications in several fields of the chemical process industries (CPI). Its major end use is as feedstock in the production of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR). In addition, Maleic Anhydride can be used as a raw material in the production of 1,4-butanediol (BDO), gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) and tetrahydrofuran (THF). BDO has been one of the world’s fastest growing chemicals in recent years.
