Chlorine
Chlorine
Cl2
Chlorine (a.k.a. Cl2) figures among the most important chemical commodities, being used in the manufacture of a myriad of day-to-day life products. In fact, the state of development of a country’s chemical industry can be measured by, among other factors, the country’s chlorine production. Molecular chlorine is a yellowish green gas (or liquified gas), with pungent and suffocating odor. It is a strong oxidant and a chlorinating agent, adding to double bonds in aliphatic compounds or undergoing substitution reactions with both aliphatic and aromatic compounds. It is an indispensable intermediate in the chemical industry, employed in the manufacture of a multitude of end products.
The uses and applications of Chlorine may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Chlorine are liquid phase (99.5 wt% minimum purity).

Chlorine Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Chlorine Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Chlorine manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Chlorine process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Chlorine production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Chlorine Production from Sodium Chloride (Membrane Process)

This study presents the economics of Chlorine production from sodium chloride via a membrane process plant located in the United States. In the process under analysis, an aqueous solution of sodium chloride (brine) is decomposed electrolytically in a membrane cell, producing Chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorine E11A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Chlorine Production from Sodium Chloride (Diaphragm Process)

This study presents the economics of Chlorine production from sodium chloride via a diaphragm plant located in the United States. In the process under analysis, an aqueous solution of sodium chloride (brine) is decomposed electrolytically in a diaphragm cell, producing Chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen.

Details: 550 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorine E12A target a 550 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Chlorine Production from Sodium Chloride (Mercury Cell Process)

This study presents the economics of Chlorine production from sodium chloride via a mercury cell process. The plant is assumed to be located in the United States. In the process under analysis, an aqueous solution of sodium chloride (brine) is decomposed electrolytically in a mercury cell, producing Chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen.

Details: 250 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorine E13A target a 250 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Chlorine from Gaseous Hydrogen Chloride (Oxidation)

This report presents the economics of secondary Chlorine production from hydrogen chloride. The analysis approaches a plant in the United States using a process similar to the Kel-Chlor process, technology based on the Deacon process. In this process, anhydrous hydrogen chloride is subjected to an oxidation reaction in the presence of catalysts producing Chlorine.

Details: 65 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorine E21A target a 65 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Chlorine from Aqueous Hydrochloric Acid (Electrolysis)

This analysis presents the costs associated with Chlorine production in the United States. The process reviewed in this study is similar to the ThyssenKrupp Uhde hydrogen chloride electrolysis process. In this process, HCl aqueous solution is decomposed electrolytically in a diaphragm cell, producing Chlorine and hydrogen.

Details: 85 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorine E22A target a 85 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Chlorine from Gaseous Hydrogen Chloride (Electrolysis)

This report evaluates Chlorine production from HCl in the United States. The process examined in this report is similar to the Dupont hydrogen chloride dry electrolysis process. In this process, anhydrous hydrogen chloride is decomposed electrolytically in gaseous phase.

Details: 65 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorine E23A target a 65 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
