The sale of ETBE, a gasoline component, was made following a policy change by the Japanese government recognizing the positive greenhouse gas (GHG) benefits.
As is typical of all gasolines produced in the past 10 years, the example Target fuel shown here contained no ether-based oxygenates (MTBE, ETBE, and TAME), so only 8 fuel properties are input into the Complex Model spreadsheet.
day) of ETBE a year starting from late November at its Negishi refinery in
Today, the properties of petrol are generally enhanced through improving the chemical structure of petrol, upgrading production technologies and adding the required amount of oxygenates (MTBE, ETBE, etc.), the octane number whereof, as determined by the method of testing, makes up 118.
The first shipment of ETBE from Brazil will begin in February to be supplied to Japan Biofuels Supply LLP, a joint entity set up by Nippon Oil Corp.
Industrial applications of the technology include esterification systems such as methyl acetate (Agreda and Partin, 1984) and etherification systems such as MTBE (Smith, 1994), ETBE (Thiel et al., 1997) and TAME (Hickey and Adams, 1994).
However, Reuters said Smith noted that the company would prefer not to shift production, as it is more difficult to manufacture an equivalent amount of such MTBE alternatives as ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE) and a transition would lead to missed production time.
The project will have operate to product 2,100,000 tons of ammonia, 4,200,000 tons of urea, 700,000 tons of methanol, 400,000 tons of MTBE and 400,000 tons of ETBE. The project estimated to cost Rp 1.6 trillion will be built in Teluk Bintuni, Papua and it will provide jobs for 5,749 Indonesians.
The Hindu Business Line said sugar mills officials have argued that the oil companies' proposed ethanol purchase price is too low considering the recent drought and increased use of ethanol as a fuel oxygenate to replace methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE).
The following oxygenates are used in petrol blends: methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE), ethyl tertiary-butyl ether (ETBE), tertiary-amyl methyl ether (TAME), tertiary-butyl alcohol (TBA; 2-methyl-2-propanol), diisopropyl ether (DIPE), ethanol (EtOH), and methanol (MeOH).
Oxygenates such as methyl-t-butyl ether (MTBE), ethyl-t-butyl ether (ETBE), and t-amyl-methyl ether (TAME) improve combustion efficiency of gasoline.
The environmentalists' letter asks Congress to ban all ether-based fuel oxygenates -- including ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE), tertiary amylmethyl ether (TAME) and diisopropyl ether (DIPE).
