This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Hydrochloric Acid production from sodium chloride with the co-production of caustic soda. The present analysis approaches a typical chlor-alkali electrolysis process integrated with the production of Hydrochloric Acid from hydrogen and chlorine. In this process, an aqueous solution of sodium chloride is decomposed electrolytically in a membrane cell producing sodium hydroxide, chlorine and hydrogen. Hydrogen and chlorine, undergo a direct reaction forming hydrogen chloride, which is subsequently passed through an absorber to produce a 35 wt% hydrochloric acid as the product. A 50 wt% sodium hydroxide solution is also obtained as co-product.
This report, HCl E61A, is a best-in-class examination of Hydrogen Chloride 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 . . .
