Butyl rubber

By Chemical Engineering |

ExxonMobil Chemical (Houston, Tex.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6899-543) has commercialized a new process for making butyl rubber at its Notre Dame de Gravenchon plant in France. The company declines to give details on the process, but says it is more energy-efficient than the conventional method and permits better control of the molecular-weight distribution. ExxonMobil plans to install the new technology at its other butyl plants around the world.
