Butadiene is mainly used as a monomer in the production of a wide range of polymers and co-polymers, as well as in the production of several intermediate chemicals. The largest single use for butadiene is in the production of styrene-butadiene rubber, which is principally used in the manufacture of tyres. The demand for butadiene has expanded recently, and MCC says its new production technology will enable butadiene supplying capacity to meet the rising demand for all butadiene-related products.
