Prop-2-enenitrile
Acrylonitrile (a.k.a. 2-Propenenitrile, Prop-2-enenitrile, Vinyl Cyanide) is an organic compound, consisting of a vinyl group linked to a nitrile, with worldwide production of more than 10 billion pounds per year. It is a colorless, volatile liquid with onion-like odor. It is a very reactive compound, due to its high polar nature (arising from the presence of the nitrogen heteroatom) and unsaturation. In the absence of a hydroquinone inhibitor, it polymerizes spontaneously when exposed to light, heat or in the presence of a strong alkali.
The uses and applications of Acrylonitrile may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acrylonitrile are analytical standard (98% minimum purity); technical grade (99% minimum purity); and inhibited (99% minimum purity, 35-45 ppm monomethyl ether hydroquinone inhibitor).

Updated Reports Examining Acrylonitrile Manufacturing Costs

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

Acrylonitrile Production from Propylene (Fluidized Bed Ammoxidation)

This report presents the economics of Acrylonitrile production from chemical grade (CG) propylene in the United States. The process reviewed is a propylene ammoxidation technology using fluidized bed reactor, in which propylene reacts with ammonia, producing Acrylonitrile, and generating acetonitrile and hydrogen cyanide as by-products.

Details: 300 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   108 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Acrylonitrile E11A target a 300 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.

Acrylonitrile Production from Propylene (Fixed Bed Ammoxidation)

This report approaches the economics of Acrylonitrile production from chemical grade (CG) propylene in the United States. The process reviewed is a propylene ammoxidation technology using a fixed bed reactor, in which propylene reacts with ammonia, producing Acrylonitrile, and generating acetonitrile and hydrogen cyanide as by-products.

Details: 150 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   108 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Acrylonitrile E12A target a 150 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.

Acrylonitrile Production from Propane

This study presents the economics of Acrylonitrile production via propane ammoxidation. The process is similar to the one proposed by PTT Asahi Chemical (PTTAC), consisting in the reaction of propane with ammonia, producing Acrylonitrile. Acetonitrile and hydrogen cyanide are produced as by-products. The analysis assumes a plant located in the United States,

Details: 200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   108 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Acrylonitrile 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.

Acrylonitrile Uses. The uses and applications of Acrylonitrile may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acrylonitrile are analytical standard (98% minimum purity); technical grade (99% minimum purity); and inhibited (99% minimum purity,35-45 ppm monomethyl ether hydroquinone inhibitor).

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.
