Butanediol (or BD for short) is an organic compound, usually referred to one of its four stable isomers – 1,4 butanediol. This colourless and practically inodorous liquid was first obtained industrially by using acetylene and formaldehyde (Reppe process). Butanediol is currently made from maleic anhydride (Davy process). Other routes of Butanediol production include, among others, from allyl acetate, propylene oxide and butadiene.
Butanediol is a vital intermediate product for tetrahydrofuran (largest application) and polytetrahydrofuran, polybutylene terephthalate, gamma-butyrolactone, polyurethane, etc. These chemical substances are utilized in engineering plastics, elastic fibers, leather-like materials, plasticizers, hardening agents, etc. The global Butanediol Market is forecast to approach nearly 2.549 million tonnes by end-2017. The majority of capacity is centered in Asia (over 56.5%), the USA and Europe. Worldwide BDO Market players encompass, among others, BASF SE, Dairen Chemicals, LyondellBasell Chemicals, Shanxi Sanwei Group, International Specialty Products, and Invista.
