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.

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 + H2O 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 solvent-based recovery system for Maleic Anhydride separation.

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

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.
