ABSTRACT
The article offers information on butadiene (BD), a hydrocarbon used to produce synthetic rubbers and polymer resins. It states that polybutadiene rubber (BR) and styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) are two derivatives of BD that are commonly used in tires. It mentions that BD is obtained as by-products from naphtha and gas oil which are used to make propylene and ethylene. Moreover, Asia constitutes more than 50 percent of BD demand above Europe which accounts 23 percent of global demand.
