Hydrogen Cyanide (also known as HCN and Prussic Acid) is a chemical precursor used in the production of several industrially relevant compounds, such as adiponitrile for nylon production, methyl methacrylate for polymer manufacturing and sodium cyanide for the production of methionine (a feed additive). HCN is mainly produced though the Andrussow process. The method involves reacting ammonia, natural gas and air over a platinum catalyst to form HCN. Alternatively, HCN can be produced by the BMA process, which uses ammonia and natural gas only.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Hydrogen Cyanide production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
