Acrylic Acid
Acrylic Acid (also known as Prop-2-enoic Acid and Acroleic Acid) is a moderately strong carboxylic acid primarily used as an intermediate in the production of acrylates esters. These acrylate esters are then mainly used to manufacture adhesives, plastics additives, coatings, paints and textiles. Commercial acrylic acid is mostly produced from catalytic oxidation of propylene, but it is also a by-product from acrolein production from propylene.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Acrylic Acid production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).

Acrylic Acid Production from Propylene - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E11A
This report presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from chemical grade (CG) propylene in the USA using a typical propylene oxidation process.

Analysis Basis: USA   |   2019 Q1   |   97 pages   Starting at $899

Acrylic Acid Production from Glycerol - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E21A
It presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from crude glycerol in the USA using a two-step process similar to Arkema technology. In the process examined, crude glycerol, obtained from biodiesel plants, is dehydrated to acrolein and subsequently oxidized to Acrylic Acid.

Bio-Acrylic Acid Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E31A
This report shows a feasibility study of bio-based Acrylic Acid production from glucose syrup using in the USA using a fermentation process similar to the speculative process proposed by the Delft University of Technology.

Analysis Basis: USA   |   2019 Q1   |   99 pages   Starting at $899

Bio-Acrylic Acid Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E32A
It presents the economics of bio-based Acrylic Acid production from glucose syrup in the USA using a fermentation process similar to Cargill process. Differently from the process examined in the report “Acrylic Acid E31A”, this process is carried in two steps: glucose is fermented to produce 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HPA), which is then dehydrated to produce Acrylic Acid.
