Dicyclopentadiene
DCPD
Dicyclopentadiene (a.k.a. DCPD) is a cyclic hydrocarbon that appears as colorless crystals, soluble in ethanol, diethyl ether, and acetic acid. It is formed by the spontaneous dimerization of cyclopentadiene at room temperature, and above 160 °C, DCDP dissociates into cyclopentadiene again. Cyclopentadiene, in its turn, is obtained from coal tar and from steam cracking operations. DCDP is used as a building block for the production of modified hydrocarbon resins, which show increased reactivity in copolymerizations with drying oils and produce paint resins with improved drying rate, gloss, and hardness. Hydrogenation of dicyclopentadiene and subsequent acid-catalyzed isomerization results in adamantane. It is also employed for modifications of unsaturated polyester resins.
The main field of application for DCPD is in the production of paints, varnishes, and resins. It is also employed as a pesticide intermediate and used to synthesize elastomers and polymers.

Updated Reports Examining Dicyclopentadiene Manufacturing Costs

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

Dicyclopentadiene Production

This report presents the economics of Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) production from a crude C5s stream, generating C5 raffinate as by-product. Initially, cyclopentadiene is dimerized to generate DCPD. The DCPD is then purified by disitillation. The economic analysis is based on the construction of a plant in the United States.

Maleic Anhydride from Butane (Fixed-Bed Reactor + Solvent-Based Recovery)

This feasibility study presents an analysis of Maleic Anhydride production from n-butane in the United States using a process similar to the one developed by Huntsman. In this process, maleic anhydride is produced by the partial oxidation reaction of n-butane with oxygen carried out in a fixed-bed reactor, using a vanadium–phosphorus oxide (VPO) catalyst supported on silica. The reactor effluent is directed to a solvent-based recovery system for Maleic Anhydride separation.

The cost analyses presented in the report MAN E11A target a 60 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.

Ethylene Glycol from Ethylene (Direct EO Hydrolysis)

This study presents the economics of Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) production from ethylene. The process described is similar to Shell MASTER. First, ethylene is oxidized with oxygen to produce ethylene oxide (EO), which is further hydrolyzed to MEG. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the United States. Diethylene glycol (DEG) and triethylene glycol (TEG) are also generated as by-products.

The cost analyses presented in the report MEG E11A target a 690 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.

Isophthalic Unsaturated Polyester Production

This report presents the economics of Isophthalic Unsaturated Polyester production from maleic anhydride, isophthalic acid, propylene glycol and styrene using a two-stage batch process located in the United States. In the first stage, the glycol and isophthalic acid react to produce a cleat melt. Maleic anhydride is added subsequently and the resin is completed.

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.
