This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) bimodal production from ethylene and 1-butene using a slurry process. The process examined is similar to the one from LyondellBasell Hostalen. In this process, ethylene and 1-butene are reacted using a slurry process. The polymerization is carried out in three CSTRs using hexane as diluent and a high-activity Ziegler catalyst system, yielding HDPE.
This report, HDPE E11A, is a best-in-class examination of HDPE 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 . . .
