Bisphenol A
Bisphenol A
BPA
Diphenylolpropane
Bisphenol A (a.k.a. BPA, Diphenylolpropane) is a synthetic organic compound, which is colorless, flammable, solid at room temperature, with a mild phenolic odor, soluble in organic solvents and poorly soluble in water (0.344 wt% at 83 ºC). It was first synthesized in 1891 by Dianin from the acid catalysed condensation of phenol and acetone and it has been produced industrially to be used as a starting material in the synthesis of epoxy resins since about 1920.
The uses and applications of BPA may vary according to its specification. The main forms of BPA are epoxy grade (95% minimum purity) and polycarbonate grade (99.8% minimum purity).

Updated Reports Examining Bisphenol A Manufacturing Costs

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

BPA from Acetone and Phenol (Hydrogen Chloride Catalyst)

This report presents the economics of Bisphenol A (BPA) production in the United States via a condensation reaction of acetone with phenol catalyzed by hydrogen chloride.

Details: 30 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report BPA E11A target a 30 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.

BPA from Acetone and Phenol (Ion-Exchange Resin Catalyst)

This report presents a techno-economic analysis of Bisphenol A (BPA) production in the United States, via a process similar to Dow's QBIS technology. In this process, BPA is produced by the reaction of acetone with phenol catalyzed by a cation-exchange resin.

Details: 200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report BPA E12A 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.

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.
