This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of n-Butyl Acrylate production from chemical grade propylene and n-butanol. The process examined is a typical propylene oxidation, followed by a typical esterification process. In this process, propylene passes through a two-stage vapor phase oxidation to generate an acrylic acid-containing gas, from which acrylic acid is recovered via absorption in water. The aqueous acrylic acid solution is purified via light solvent extraction to ester-grade acrylic acid to be combined with n-butanol in a esterification reactor to generate a crude ester stream that is further purified to yield high-purity butyl acrylate.
This report, Butyl Acrylate E21A, is a best-in-class examination of Butyl Acrylate production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
