Biorenewable Insights: Isobutylene (2016 Program)

The purpose of this report is to analyze developments in bio-based isobutylene technologies.  Isobutylene derived from bio-based materials or processes can be converted into a number of chemical products—potentially improving the GHG profile of the process, including everything from rubber, to personal care products, to flavors and fragrances.  The purpose of this study is to assess the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing isobutylene.
