Liq­uide En­gi­neer­ing & Con­struc­tion has signed an agree­ment with Mit­subishi Chem­i­cal Cor­po­ra­tion to li­cense MCC’s Butene-to-crudeBu­ta­di­ene tech­nol­ogy used in the petro­chem­i­cal in­dus­try.

Mit­subishi Chem­i­cal Cor­po­ra­tion (MCC) has de­vel­oped this state-of-the art ox­ida­tive de­hy­dro­gena­tion tech­nol­ogy of n-butene to pro­duce crude Bu­ta­di­ene and ver­i­fied the vi­a­bil­ity in a demon­stra­tion plant at MCC Mizushima, Ja­pan.

Bu­ta­di­ene is an im­por­tant in­dus­trial chem­i­cal used in many day-to-day prod­ucts, mainly as syn­thetic rub­ber for the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try. Bu­ta­di­ene can also be used as a raw ma­te­rial for the pro­duc­tion of prod­ucts such as poly­mers, plas­tics and pa­per chem­i­cals. This al­lows to ex­tend the pro­duc­tion of Bu­ta­di­ene from the con­ven­tional ex­trac­tion from a Naph­tha Cracker prod­uct to on-pur­pose pro­duc­tion based on a wider range of feed­stocks.
