Procurement Resource Assessment of Methyl tert-butyl ether Production Process:

1. Methyl tert-butyl ether Production  Via Direct addition of methanol to isobutylene: This report presents the detailed production methodology and cost analysis of Methyl tert-butyl ether industrial production across Methyl tert-butyl ether manufacturing plants. In this process, methanol is mixed with isobutylene and is then heated in a reaction unit. The reaction is carried out in the presence of ion exchange resins containing sulfur that act as catalysts. Methyl tert-butyl ether is then obtained via purification.

2. Methyl tert-butyl ether Production  From Raffinate-1 and Menthol via etherification: This report provides the thorough economics of Methyl tert-butyl ether industrial production across Methyl tert-butyl ether manufacturing plants. In the etherification process, raffinate-1 and menthol are added in a reaction mixture to obtain methyl tert-butyl ether. The effluents are then added to a reactive distillation column to obtain the final product.

3. Methyl tert-butyl ether Production  From C4 Raffinate and Menthol: This report presents the extensive cost requirement of Methyl tert-butyl ether industrial production across Methyl tert-butyl ether manufacturing plants. The process of production of methyl tert-butyl ether from C4 raffinate and menthol is called catalytic cracking. In this process, etherification of the products occur first and then via reactive distillation column, the final product is produced.

4. Methyl tert-butyl ether Production  From Butane and Menthol: This report presents the extensive cost requirement of Methyl tert-butyl ether industrial production across Methyl tert-butyl ether manufacturing plants. This is a three-step process. In the first step, isomerization of butane occurs to produce isobutane. In the second step, the isomer is dehydrogenated to produce isobutylene which undergoes the final step of etherification to produce methyl tert-butyl ether.

Product Definition:

Methyl tert-butyl ether, generally known as MTBE, has been a fuel additive for unleaded petrol since the late 1990s. It is created through a chemical reaction between methanol and isobutylene. It is a colorless, transparent liquid with a potent anaesthetic odor. Its vapors are denser than those of narcotics and the air. It has a flash point of 18 °F and a boiling point of 131 °F. It is a synthetic chemical that increases the oxygen content of petrol, enabling cleaner combustion in automobiles. Methyl tert-butyl ether also has a high-octane number which improves the combustion efficiency of gasoline and reduces engine knocking. It is thus, widely used as a gasoline additive.

Market Drivers:

In order to comply with environmental standards aimed at lowering air pollution and enhancing combustion efficiency, methyl tert-butyl ether has traditionally been added to petrol as an oxygenate additive. The demand for MTBE has been pushed by governmental regulations requiring the use of oxygenates in petrol compositions. Because of its high-octane rating, methyl tert-butyl ether enhances fuel performance by lowering engine knocking. The need for methyl tert-butyl ether as an octane enhancer continues to be a market driver as automobile engines require higher octane fuels for maximum efficiency. The automobile industry is growing, especially in emerging economies, which has raised the demand for petrol and, in turn, for octane enhancers. The market is driven by the need for higher-quality fuels, which is fueled by the increase in the number of cars on the road. Due to its high-water solubility and resistance to phase separation, it is a useful additive for fuel blending. A market driver is its simplicity in mixing with petrol and capacity to maintain fuel quality throughout storage, distribution, and transportation.
