Isopropyl Alcohol (also known as Isopropanol and 2-Propanol) is one of the most produced lower alcohols (C1 to C5 alcohols), it is the third in commercial production, behind methanol and ethanol. Isopropyl Alcohol is used as chemical intermediates (ester, amines and other organics), personal care and household products, coatings and ink solvents, processing solvent, pharmaceuticals and others. Isopropanol is largely produced by either direct or indirect hydration (also called the sulfuric acid process) of propylene. Other ways of producing Isopropanol include acetone hydrogenation.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Isopropyl Alcohol 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).
