TPC Group secures crude C4 (CC4) from ethylene crackers around the world. We are a world scale aggregator of CC4 streams and play an essential role to the non-integrated CC4 producers by our extensive ability to upgrade the value of the C4 components. Processing 30-40 percent of the CC4 in North America, TPC has multiple units to extract and produce butadiene at both our Houston and Port Neches operating facilities.
Butadiene is a valuable component used in a wide range of market applications which include synthetic rubber for tires and hoses, nylon for carpeting and airbags, latex for paper coatings, ABS resins for plastic components and TP Elastomers for roofing, footwear and more.
