Butene Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Butene (a.k.a. Butenes, Butylene) refers to a range of linear isomeric olefins (1-butene, cis-2-butene, trans-2-butene). It a colorless, flammable mixture, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic compounds. The isomers hardly occur naturally and have been known since the end of the nineteenth century.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Butene 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 (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Butene production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

1-Butene Production from Ethylene - Cost Analysis | Butene E12A

This study presents the costs associated with the construction of an industrial plant producing 1-Butene from ethylene in the USA. This study analyzes a process similar to the Axens/SABIC AlphaButol technology. In the process under analysis, ethylene is dimerized into butenes with high selectivity for 1-Butene. Gasoline (C6+ stream) is generated as by-product.
