1,3-Butadiene Supplier to Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh businesses who purchase 1,3-butadiene have an exemplary local producer at Greco Gas. 1,3-butadiene is a colorless, flammable gas distributed as a liquid under its own vapor pressure.

1,3-butadiene is a specialty olefin first created in large quantities to supply the synthetic rubber business that grew because of the lack of natural rubber during World War II.

In our time, the necessity for rubber tires still accounts for the majority of all 1,3-Butadiene production. Continuing 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 produced from acetylene, 1-butene and ethanol, generally however, high purity 1,3-butadiene is distilled from the commercial n-butane process.
