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).
