Acetaldehyde Production from Acetylene
US Patent 3291839, issued to Phillips Petroleum in 1966

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 presents a cost analysis of a United States-based industrial plant. You can add an extra cost analysis, for another plant location (country), during the order process.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences among the basic, extended and advanced versions of Intratec reports?

Each Intratec report targets a specific production process, and is available in three different versions: basic, extended and advanced. The basic difference among report versions refers to the amount/depth of content presented, as follows:

The basic version describes the industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs.

For those needing more in-depth, comprehensive analyses, Intratec offers the extended and the advanced versions.

The extended version includes everything of the basic version plus an extra appendix, in which it is presented the following analyses: Economics of Different Capacities; Utilities Consumption Breakdown; Construction Implementation Schedule.

Finally, the advanced version includes everything of the extended version plus another extra appendix, in which it is presented: Process Unit Cost Breakdown per Equipment; Infrastructure Cost Breakdown per Equipment; Plant Construction Cost Breakdown per Discipline; Process Flow Diagrams.

Can I purchase just a chapter or an appendix of a report?

Please keep in mind that significant portions of our reports are meant precisely to explain concepts/assumptions considered throughout the study, in such a way that the content of all chapters/appendixes are highly referenced to each other.

In this context, Intratec only sells reports in three versions, basic, advanced and extended. We do not sell report excerpts.

If I purchase a basic version of a report, can I upgrade it to another version later?

Yes, within 2 months after you purchase the report, you can order an upgrade! Just contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. requesting the upgrade. We will then send you a direct link with this custom order, through which you will be able to conclude the purchase.

Do you sell reports without being updated? Can I purchase out-of-date reports from the reports store?

Intratec's policy is to always provide its customers with relevant and up-to-date Production Cost Reports, which serve as timely and well-founded cost analyses. Therefore, once a customer orders a report, the Intratec team reviews and refreshes market figures and techno-economic parameters presented in that report before delivering it. This way we ensure that our customers will always have up-to-date reports, reviewed in light of relevant references that eventually popped up since the report was first developed.

In this context, kindly note that Intratec does not sell out-of-date reports.

If I order a report, will I be able to clear questions I may have?

Customers interested in clearing eventual doubts must order advanced versions of reports, which includes Technical Support for clearing up doubts via email.

Please note that only customers who bought advanced versions will be allowed to clear questions related to the respective report.

How will the reports be delivered?

Intratec reports can be delivered in two formats: as online PDFs or as downloadable PDFs. The delivery format is according to the version of the report: Basic Versions are delivered as online PDFs, while Extended and Advanced Versions are delivered as downloadable PDFs.

After Intratec team updates a report ordered, it is made available either for online access or for download in the User Area, at Intratec website. Reports delivered as online PDFs will be accessible for 365 days after report delivery, in a private area at Intratec website.

I need an economic analysis, like the one presented in the report, but for another plant location… could you provide me that?

Yes! Intratec offers, for each report, an optional analysis called “Cost Analysis in Another Location”, which presents capital and operating costs of an industrial plant identical to the one discussed in the report but located in a country selected by you.

This optional analysis has the same structure of the report (chapters Capital Investment, Operating Costs, and Process Economics Summary). The costs presented in US dollars (with assumed exchange rate for local currency).

You can select this optional in the order process of any report.

How are Intratec reports developed?

After more than a decade supporting leading companies worldwide, Intratec has gained considerable expertise in the analysis of markets and production process economics. All of this expertise is distilled in our reports through the use of consistent development methodologies.

Our methodologies ensure that our reports are reliable, structured, and continuously tested and proven by the many corporations, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on those reports.

We highly encourage you to check our Report Development Methodology.

Where does the information presented in Intratec Reports come from?

The information about industrial processes presented in our reports is drawn from public sources, encompassing patents, encyclopedias, text books, technical papers and non-confidential information disclosed by licensors, and duly reviewed by Intratec. The market data presented in our reports are primarily drawn from public sources. This information is checked across several sources to verify and ensure integrity.

Can I Share Intratec Reports?

The sharing of Intratec Report and its content is according to the version of the report, as follows:

The customer who purchased a Basic Version is allowed to share it exclusively with co-workers from the same institution or corporation, who also work at the same country.

An Extended Version may be shared with co-workers from the same institution or corporation, worldwide.

Finally, an Advanced Version may be shared with up to five third parties, provided that such sharing complies with all the conditions presented at www.intratec.us/legal/report-sharing-terms
