Acetylene
Acetylene
Ethyne
Acetylene (a.k.a. Ethyne), the simplest hydrocarbon with a triple bond, is an unstable, highly reactive hydrocarbon. Ethyne was the most important building block of industrial organic chemistry in the past, but lost its position to ethylene and other olefins with the rise of the oil industry. However, it is still a very important commercial compound.
The uses and applications of Acetylene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acetylene are grade D (98.0% of purity); welding grade (98.8% of purity); and purified acetylene (99.6% of purity).

Acetylene Cost of Production | Q1 2024

Updated Reports Examining Acetylene Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Acetylene manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Acetylene process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Acetylene production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q1 2024).

Acetylene Production from Natural Gas (Partial Combustion Process)

This report presents the economics of Acetylene production from natural gas using a partial combustion process similar to that developed by BASF. In this process, methane from natural gas is cracked in high temperatures to acetylene and hydrogen. The economic analysis developed is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 50 kta United States-based plant   |   Q1 2024   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Acetylene E11A target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Acetylene Production from Natural Gas (Electric Arc Process)

This feasibility study presents the economics of Acetylene production from natural gas using an electric arc process. In this process, a high-power electric arc furnace is employed to crack natural gas into olefinic compounds, including acetylene. The economic analysis also assumes a plant located in the United States.

The cost analyses presented in the report Acetylene E12A target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Acetylene Production from Coal and Lime

This analysis presents the costs associated with the construction and operation of a plant located in the United States for Acetylene production from coal using a typical calcium carbide process. In the process depicted, calcium oxide (lime) is reduced by carbon in an electric furnace, generating calcium carbide, which is then hydrolyzed to produce Acetylene and calcium hydroxide.

The cost analyses presented in the report Acetylene E21A target a 200 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Acetylene Production from Calcium Carbide

This study presents the economics of Acetylene production from calcium carbide in the United States via wet process. In the process, calcium carbide reacts with water to form Acetylene. Hydrated lime is generated as by-product.

Details: 200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q1 2024   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Acetylene E31A target a 200 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Acetylene Production from Naphtha

This study presents the economics of Acetylene production from naphtha using a partial combustion process. In this process, naphtha feedstock is cracked at high temperatures producing acetylene. The economic analysis developed is based on a plant constructed in Germany.

Details: 50 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q1 2024   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Acetylene E41B target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) Germany-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Acetylene Uses. The uses and applications of Acetylene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acetylene are grade D (98.0% of purity); welding grade (98.8% of purity); and purified acetylene (99.6% of purity).

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.
