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.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Polybutylene Succinate production costs. 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 (Q2 2023).
