During the economic life cycle, there are likely to be periods where producers are found building stocks and those where stock reduction is occurring. Our End-Use Consumption analysis seeks to quantify the degree of inventory build through a correlation with the rate of change of Economic Growth in a given region. The analysis then uses a multiplier to calculate the Inventory Effects as economic activity changes in the regionISBL
ISBL (Inside Battery Limits) is a term that refers to all equipment items that directly impacts on the process. This includes all process operations, immediate feedstock and product storage and…Iso-Butanol
Iso-Butanol is an oxo-alcohol with various uses as a direct process solvent, although is mainly used in the production of various acetates, glycol ethers and amines. It is used as a precursor for isobutyl acetate (a solvent) as a partial replacement for n-butanol in some applications. Iso-Butanol is a propylene derivative, and is produced by catalytically hydrogenated n-butyraldehyde from propylene oxonation (the hydroformulation of propylene with syngas in an oxo-process). Iso-Butanol is produced in all regions.Isopropanol
Iso-Propanol (IPA) is a solvent with various applications including printing inks, coatings, de-icer and the manufacture of isopropyl amines, an intermediate to fertilizers. High purity IPA is used in medical and IT solvent applications. Approximately 12 percent of IPA is used in household applications such as cleaners, surface disinfectants, and personal care products. It is produced directly by sulphuric acid oxidation of propylene or indirectly by the hydrogenation of acetone. Isopropanol production is widespread globally.
