The technology status and latest development of catalytic dehydrogenation of n-butene, oxidative dehydrogenation of n-butene, one-step dehydrogenation of n-butane and two-step dehydrogenation of n-butane are illustrated in detail. The latest situation and market prospect of the dehydrogenation devices of n-butene and n-butane all over the world are introduced. Advantages and disadvantages of oxidative dehydrogenation process of n-butene and one-step dehydrogenation process of n-butane (catadiene process)are analyzed in the end. At the same time, it is pointed out that the process which produces butadiene from oxidative dehydrogenation of n-butene will be the main method to increase the production of butadiene in the future.
