Today, the demand for rubber tires still defines the majority of all 1,3-Butadiene production. Ongoing 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, gathered from midstream natural gas processing plants.
