1,3-Butadiene Supplier to Denver Denver businesses who purchase 1,3-butadiene have a well-known local producer at Rocky Mountain Air Solutions. 1,3-butadiene is a flammable, colorless gas shipped as a liquid under its own vapor pressure. 1,3-butadiene is a specialty olefin originally synthesized in large amounts to support the synthetic rubber business that developed because of the lack of natural rubber during World War II. These days, the demand for rubber tires still accounts for the majority of all 1,3-Butadiene production. Additional 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.
