Adipic Acid
Adipic Acid (also known as Hexanedioic Acid) is one of the most commercially important aliphatic dicarboxylic acids. The majority of its worldwide consumption is destined for the manufacture of nylon 6,6 fibers and resins, and a small amount is still used captively to produce adiponitrile. Adipic Acid may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Adipic Acid or Green Adipic Acid. The traditional production method for Adipic Acid is based on the oxidation of cyclohexane, a petroleum-based feedstock. However, bio-based routes to Adipic Acid have been emerging as alternatives to petroleum-derived Adipic Acid.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Adipic 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).

Adipic Acid Production from Cyclohexane - Cost Analysis | Adipic Acid E11A
This report presents a cost analysis of Adipic Acid production from cyclohexane, which is the predominant raw material for the commercial production of this acid. The process examined is a two-stage oxidation process, similar to the Invista technology. In this process, cyclohexane is oxidized with air to produce KA oil (mixture of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol), further oxidized with nitric acid to produce Adipic Acid. The economic analysis approaches a plant constructed in the USA.
