Our Business > Petrochemical > PT Petrokimia Butadiene Indonesia
PT Petrokimia Butadiene Indonesia is one of PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk’s subsidiaries that will produce Butadiene, a chemical used to make styrene Butadiene rubber (SBR), acrylonitrile butadiene system (ABS) and styrene butadiene latex (SBL). All three are the main materials used in tire production.
This Butadiene plant – the country’s first and only butadiene plant – would help Indonesia reduce Butadiene imports, particularly from South Korea and Japan.
PBI began the construction of the first Butadiene plant of its kind in Indonesia in July 2011, with a capacity of 100 KTPA when completed in the third quarter of 2013.
