1,3-Butadiene Supplier to Riverside

Riverside businesses who buy 1,3-butadiene have an exemplary local producer at Elite Air. 1,3-butadiene is a flammable gas that is colorless and is distributed as a liquid under its own vapor pressure.

1,3-butadiene is a specialty olefin initially created in significant volumes to supply the synthetic rubber business that developed because of the shortage of natural rubber during World War II.

In our time, the demand for rubber tires still defines the majority of all 1,3-Butadiene production. Ongoing research in specialty rubber and related polymers drives the demand for cylinder quantities of High Purity 1,3-Butadiene. It is also used in specialty organic chemical synthesis, and in mixtures, as a standard for environmental air monitoring.

Most 1,3-Butadiene production relies on n-butane as a starting material, stripped from midstream natural gas processing plants. High Purity 1,3-Butadiene can be created from acetylene, 1-butene and ethanol, generally however, high purity 1,3-butadiene is distilled from the commercial n-butane process.
