This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) polymer production. The process examined is a typical ABS emulsion polymerization process. In this process, butadiene is first polymerized in the presence of water, forming a latex. The polybutadiene latex is submitted to a grafting reaction with styrene and acrylonitrile monomers. The graft latex is mixed with a SAN Latex produced separately. Final ABS product is then isolated from latex, dried, extruded and bagged.
This report, ABS E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
