2-Propanol
Isopropanol (a.k.a. Isopropyl Alcohol, 2-Propanol) is a colorless and flammable liquid with a strong odor. Isopropyl alcohol was among the first petrochemical products to be industrially manufactured - it has been produced since 1920. At this time, Isopropanol was generated through the indirect hydration of propylene, a process that uses sulfuric acid to react with propylene and generate a compound that will react with water to produce Isopropanol. Today, it is one of the most produced lower alcohols (C1 to C5 alcohols), the third in commercial production, behind methanol and ethanol.
The uses and applications of Isopropanol may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Isopropanol are technical (min. purity of 99.8 wt%, anhydrous) and cosmetic (min. purity of 99.9 wt%, max. 0.002 wt% acidity).

Updated Reports Examining Isopropanol Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Isopropanol manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Isopropanol process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Isopropanol production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Isopropyl Alcohol Production from RG Propylene

This report presents the economics of Isopropyl Alcohol production from refinery grade (RG) propylene via a typical indirect propylene hydration process. In this process, RG propylene reacts with sulfuric acid to form isopropyl alcohol sulfates. Those sulfates are then reacted with water to form Isopropanol. The study assumes a plant located in the United States.

The cost analyses presented in the report Isopropanol E11A target a 200 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Isopropyl Alcohol Production from PG Propylene

This report approaches the economics of Isopropyl Alcohol production from Polymer Grade (PG) Propylene. This study is based on a plant located in the United States. Isopropyl Alcohol is obtained via a typical direct propylene hydration process which is carried out in the vapour phase using phosphoric acid on silica as catalyst.

The cost analyses presented in the report Isopropanol E21A target a 200 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Isopropyl Alcohol Production from Acetone

In this report, it is approached the economics of Isopropyl Alcohol production from acetone in a typical acetone hydrogenation process, also assuming an industrial plant located in the United States. The reaction is carried out in liquid phase, in two fixed bed reactors in series, catalyzed by a Raney nickel catalyst.

Details: 60 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Isopropanol E31A target a 60 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Isopropyl Alcohol Production from Propane

This report presents an economic analysis of an integrated unit for producing Isopropyl Alcohol from propane in the United States. In a first unit, propane is converted to propylene via propane dehydrogenation. The propylene obtained is then converted to Isopropyl Alcohol via vapor phase hydration over a catalytic bed of phosphoric acid on silica.

Isopropanol Uses. The uses and applications of Isopropanol may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Isopropanol are technical (min. purity of 99.8 wt%,anhydrous) and cosmetic (min. purity of 99.9 wt%,max. 0.002 wt% acidity).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
