This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Acetaldehyde production from acetylene. The process examined is a typical vapor phase acetylene hydration over solid catalyst. In this process, steam is generated and mixed with acetylene. The gaseous stream is fed to fixed bed reactors in parallel, where acetylene is hydrated to form acetaldehyde. The excess of water in the reactor product is partially condensed and returned to the reactor. The gaseous stream is transferred to distillation units that recover unreacted acetylene for reuse and generate the purified acetaldehyde product.
This report, Acetaldehyde E32A, is a best-in-class examination of Acetaldehyde 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 . . .
