This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of 1,3-Butadiene (BD) production from n-butane using a dehydrogenation process. The process examined is similar to Lummus Catadiene technology. In the process, n-butane undergoes a dehydrogenation reaction generating a C4s stream containing 1,3-Butadiene. High purity 1,3-Butadiene is obtained after conventional separation steps and an extractive distillation, using n-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) as solvent. Unreacted butane and butenes recovered are recycled to the dehydrogenation.
This report, Butadiene E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Butadiene 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 . . .
