This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Bisphenol A (BPA) production from phenol and acetone. The process examined is a hydrogen chloride-catalyzed process similar to the one developed by Hooker Chemical (acquired by Occidental Chemical). In this process, BPA is produced by the condensation reaction of acetone with phenol, catalyzed by hydrogen chloride. The crude Bisphenol A product is passed through a sequence of separation steps and purified by crystallization to obtain polycarbonate grade Bisphenol A as the final product.
This report, BPA E11A, is a best-in-class examination of BPA production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
