Houston, TX, May 14, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The supply of butadiene has been constrained for several years. The difference between the production cost of ethylene and co-product butadiene from light feedstocks and naphtha has grown steep. The new sources of natural gas from shale plays in the U.S. have increased the availability of ethane as a feedstock. Indeed new ethylene capacity will be added in the U.S. that will be designed to run ethane and produce little or no coproduct butadiene. Ethylene producers’ preference for the more economical light feedstock slates potentially keeps the supply of butadiene tight for the foreseeable future. Consequently, now is the time to explore creative sources of butadiene.
