For answers to your question re the biggest consumers of rubber, see the
International Rubber Study Group:  http://www.rubberstudy.com/STATS.htm

Also, on Stephen G.'s message to Amy, SBR is entirely and only synthetic --
there is no SBR that is natural.

Amy
energy for rubber (SBR) production (no indication in my info if synthetic or
natural) is 67,000 BTU/lb  (btw the same study says it takes 12,000 btu/lb
to make recycled rubber). (Hafner, 1986)

Steel takes 16,000 BTU/lb (and 6,500 from recycled feedstock). (Battelle
Institute, 1975)

Hi all,
I am in the process of gathering information on resources, and have come up
against a wall on a few. Any help would be appreciated.
Who are the major country consumers of Silicon dioxide/sand, (i.e. raw
materials for glass), and how much energy as BTU does it take to produce 1
lb
How many BTU's to produce 1 lb of tin
How many BTU's to produce 1 lb of synthetic rubber (from petroleum)
Who are the major country consumers of natural rubber and synthetic rubber.

Thank you in advance
Julie
