was one of the highest consumed n-butanol applications in 2014.
The sales volume of butyl acrylate
also met the expected target and reached 63,000 metric tons.
Products and Capacity are 1,4 Dioxane ( 300 tpm), Butyl Acrylate
( 45 tpm), Acetaldehyde (By-product) ( 24 tpm) , Acetic Acid ( 2.
The major part of the butanol produced will be used as feedstock for the butyl acrylate
project by Saudi Acrylic Monomer Company.
Additionally, a new butyl acrylate
plant will begin production later this year.
At the BASF-YPC Verbund site in Nanjing, SAP, butyl acrylate
and acrylic acid production will be backward integrated into the manufacturing of C3.
PRS[R] paraffin wax was encapsulated by means of suspension-like copolymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) with butyl acrylate
Growing demand for derivatives such as ethyl acrylate, butyl acrylate
and 2-EHA in paints, coatings and textiles is expected to drive the product's growth.
It will be further elaborated by the BASF-YPC its acrylic acid value chain with extra acrylic acid and butyl acrylate
BASF will invest in a world-scale production site for acrylic acid, butyl acrylate
and superabsorbent polymers (SAP) in Camacari, Bahia, Brazil.

Three new plants for the production of crude acrylic acid, pure acrylic acid and butyl acrylate
came onstream at the Bohien facility of German chemical supplier Buna Sow Leuna Olefinverbund GmbH (BSL).
