This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Homopolymer High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) production starting from polymer grade (PG) ethylene using a slurry loop process. The process described is similar to the one from Chevron Phillips MarTECH and INEOS Innovene S. In this study, the ethylene monomers are polymerized using a slurry process in a single loop reactor, producing homopolymer HDPE.
This report, HDPE E31A, is a best-in-class examination of HDPE 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 . . .
