Hydrogen Acetate
Acetic Acid (a.k.a. Ethanoic Acid, Hydrogen Acetate, Vinegar) is an organic compound, in the carboxylic acids class. It is a clear, colorless liquid, with sharp odor and burning taste, miscible with water and most organic solvents. It can be found naturally in dilute solutions in plants and animal systems, as well as in ocean water, rain and oilfield brines. Its existence has been known for more than 2,000 years, and, currently, it is the most commercialized organic acid worldwide. Acetic acid, in organic process, can be comparable to sulfuric acid in mineral chemical industries, as its movements mirror the ones of the industry as a whole, and a country’s consumption can help to establish the current state of its economy.
The uses and applications of Acetic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acetic Acid are glacial (99.4 wt% minimum purity); technical grade (usually 80 wt%); dilute (usually 36–37wt%) ; and vinegar (2-12 wt% aqueous solution).

Acetic Acid Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Acetic Acid Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Acetic Acid manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Acetic Acid process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Acetic Acid production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Acetic Acid Production from Acetaldehyde

This report presents the economics of Acetic Acid production from acetaldehyde in the United States. In this process, acetaldehyde is oxidized in liquid phase to acetic acid with manganous acetate as catalyst.

Acetic Acid Uses. The uses and applications of Acetic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acetic Acid are glacial (99.4 wt% minimum purity); technical grade (usually 80 wt%); dilute (usually 36–37wt%) ; and vinegar (2-12 wt% aqueous solution).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
