Polybutylene Succinate
Polybutylene Succinate
PBS
Polybutylene Succinate (a.k.a. PBS) is a biodegradable linear aliphatic polyester with excellent mechanical properties. PBS is produced by transesterification polymerization of dimethyl succinate with 1,4-butanediol, or by direct melt polymerization of succinic acid with butanediol. PBS copolymers with improved characteristics and properties can be manufactured from succinic acid or succinate, butanediol, and other dicarboxylic acids or alkylenediols, such as adipic acid, terephthalic acid, sebacic acid, 1,3-propanediol, and other substituted glycols.
Polybutylene Succinate is mainly used in agriculture; fishery; forestry; civil engineering; and other fields in which recovery and recycling of materials after use is problematic. For example, PBS is actually used as packaging materials; vegetation and fishing nets; mulching film; and compost bags.

Updated Reports Examining Polybutylene Succinate Manufacturing Costs

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

Polybutylene Succinate Production from Succinic Acid and Butanediol

This report presents the economics of Polybutylene Succinate (PBS) production from succinic acid and butanediol using a process similar to Uhde Inventa-Fischer process. The economic assessment assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 70 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PBS E11A target a 70 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Polybutylene Succinate Production from Glucose and Butanediol

This report presents the economics of Polybutylene Succinate (PBS) production from glucose and butanediol in the United States. The examined process combines a fermentative process for succinic acid generation from glucose syrup with a process similar to Uhde Inventa-Fischer for generating Polybutylene Succinate from succinic acid generated and butanediol.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PBS E21A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Polybutylene Succinate Production from Raw Sugar and Butanediol

This report presents the economics of Polybutylene Succinate (PBS) production from raw sugar and butanediol in Germany. The examined process combines a process for succinic acid generation from raw sugar with a process similar to Uhde Inventa-Fischer for generating Polybutylene Succinate from succinic acid and butanediol.

Details: 100 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PBS E31B target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) Germany-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Polybutylene Succinate Uses. Polybutylene Succinate is mainly used in agriculture; fishery; forestry; civil engineering; and other fields in which recovery and recycling of materials after use is problematic. For example,PBS is actually used as packaging materials; vegetation and fishing nets; mulching film; and compost bags.

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.
