This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from propane. The process examined is a novel process for propane oxidation. In this process, propane is fed to an oxydehydrogenation reactor in the presence of steam to form propylene. The propylene-containing gas passes through a two-stage vapor phase oxidation to generate an acrylic acid-containing gas, from which acrylic acid is recovered via absorption in water. The aqueous acrylic acid solution is purified via light solvent extraction to Ester-grade Acrylic Acid (EAA).
This report, Acrylic Acid E91A, is a best-in-class examination of Acrylic Acid production, providing 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 . . .
