R&D pipeline

The isobutene process is the Company’s most advanced program.

It is pursuing two other programs studying compounds in the same family:

  • butadiene, a 10 million tonne market. This program is being conducted in conjunction with Synthos, an industrial group that is one of Europe’s leading rubber producers.
  • Propylene, an 83 million tonne market.

Development of these processes is currently two and three years respectively behind the isobutene process.
