This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Caprolactam production from toluene. The process examined is similar to the one developed by SNIA. In this process, Caprolactam is produced by the following steps: toluene is initially oxidized to benzoic acid; benzoic acid is hydrogenated to hexahydrobenzoic acid; and hexahydrobenzoic acid is finally converted to Caprolactam.
This report, Caprolactam E61A, is a best-in-class examination of Caprolactam production, providing 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 . . .
