This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of polymer grade (PG) Ethylene production from hydrous ethanol using a dehydration process. The process under analysis is similar to the TechnipFMC’s Hummingbird process (former BP Chemicals). In this process, ethanol is submitted to a dehydration reaction, carried out in fixed-bed reactors containing an acid catalyst supported by silica. Ethylene is produced and then sent to a series of columns for purification, reaching the product specifications.
This report, ethylene e81a, is a best-in-class examination of Ethylene production, providing an 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 . . .
