Based on a copolymer of isobutylene
and maleic anhydride, the fiber will be used in the development of new specialty fiber superabsorbents.
Propylene is a building block material used in the production of films and packaging, while isobutylene
is a key ingredient for fuels and synthetic rubber.
The second chapter focuses on isobutylene
oxide end-uses, the third one gives summary on a number of patents.
This complex has units producing polyethylene, synthetic rubbers, latex, propylene glycol, pyrolysis benzene and fractions of butene, butylene and isobutylene
Lummus Technology will be providing technology for a world scale steam cracker complex comprising ethylene, butadiene, benzene, isobutylene
and MTBE units.
ETBE, an oxygenated component, is made by combining plant-derived ethanol with a petroleum product, isobutylene
It is made from blending chemicals such as isobutylene
and methanol, and has been used since the 1980s as an additive for unleaded petrol to achieve more efficient burning.
Physical, mechanical and thermal properties of a new class of isobutylene
based model block copolymers are studied and contrasted with those of traditional thermoplastic elastomers based on polydienes and saturated polydienes (polyolefins) such as Kraton (or Vector) and Kraton G block copolymers.
UOP's fast-to-market solution with key, pre-engineered components enabled this project to go from kick-off to start-up in just 20 months -- about 10 to 12 months earlier than a typical project of this size -- allowing Shandong Luqing to start producing isobutylene
sooner," said Mike Millard, vice president and general manager of UOP's Process Technology and Equipment business unit.
Other major popular segments of synthetic rubber include Ethylene Propylene-Diene Monomer Rubber (EPDM), Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR), Butyl Rubber or Isobutylene
Isoprene Rubber (IIR) and Poly-isoprene or Isoprene Rubber (IR).
Several Catofin units using HGM for isobutylene
production have gone on-stream since 2011, all confirming the advantages of HGM technology at full commercial scale.
The technology consistently delivers superior performance due to its high reliability, low energy usage, high isobutylene
yields, and a fully recyclable platinum alumina-based catalyst system using proven continuous catalyst regeneration (CCR) technology.
