This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Dibutyl Ketone (DBK) production from levulinic acid. The process examined is similar to the one proposed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In this process, levulinic acid is hydrogenated over two catalytic beds, forming Fuel Grade DBK (90 wt% purity), which is then purified to Chemical Grade DBK (99.5 wt% purity). Valeric acid (86 wt% purity) is generated as by-product.
This report, DBK E12A, is a best-in-class examination of Dibutyl Ketone 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 . . .
