Caprolactam Production from Benzene - Cost Analysis | Caprolactam E11A

This report presents the economics of Caprolactam production from benzene located in the USA. Initially, benzene is hydrogenated to cyclohexane, which is oxidized to cyclohexanone. Then, the cyclohexanone undergoes an oximation reaction with hydroxylamine. Finally, the oxime produced is rearranged to Caprolactam.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 180 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,499

The cost analyses presented in the report Caprolactam E11A target a 180 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Caprolactam Production from Butadiene - Cost Analysis | Caprolactam E21A

This feasibility study shows the economics of a Caprolactam production process from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide based on an industrial plant located in the USA. Hexamethylenediamine (HMDA) is generated as by-product in the process under analysis.

Caprolactam Production from Cyclohexane - Cost Analysis | Caprolactam E42A

This report also concerns the production of Caprolactam from cyclohexane in the USA. However, differently from the report "Caprolactam E41A", this report reviews a cyclohexane photonitrozation process (PNC). Initially, cyclohexane is submitted to PNC with nitrosyl chloride. The oxime produced is then subjected to Beckmann rearrangement and caprolatam is formed.
