Cumene (a.k.a. Isopropylbenzene) is an organic compound, in the aromatic hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic solvents. Cumene production grew rapidly during World War II, since it was employed as aviation gasoline. It is found in crude oil and is primarily used as a raw material in the manufacture of phenol, acetone, and methyl styrene - compounds with many chemical and industrial uses. In fact, currently, the production of cumene is largely associated with the demand for phenol and phenol derivatives.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Cumene production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
