Developer of a technology for producing butadiene from renewable ethanol ETB Catalytic Technologies has been granted funding by the Skolkovo Foundation.
ETB is developing a technology for producing butadiene - a monomer for ABS plastics and SBR rubbers for automobile and bicycle tires production. The main goal of the project is to provide raw materials for the producers of final product by replacing the traditional source of monomer raw materials (naphta) with a renewable one - bioethanol.

The project starts in December 2019. The received funds will be used to develop and create a facility for rapid screening of catalysts for the ethanol to butadiene technology, as well as development of an improved version of the catalyst. The results will improve the current parameters of the ETB process and increase the competitiveness of technology on the market.
