This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) production from polymer grade (PG) ethylene and 1-butene using a gas phase process. The process examined is similar to Univation UNIPOL and INEOS Innovene G processes. In this plant, a system comprising a fluidized-bed reactor, compressor and heat exchanger is used promote the copolymerization of ethylene and 1-butene.
This report, LLDPE E31A, is a best-in-class examination of LLDPE 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 . . .
