Lysine
Lysine is an essential amino acid that cannot be synthesized by animal organisms and must be supplied in their diet. It is commercially produced as biologically active L-Lysine Monohydrochloride (L-Lysine-HCl) and L-Lysine Sulfate. As L-Lysine-HCl, it is a yellowish-white, crystalline powder.
The uses and applications of Lysine may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Lysine are L-Lysine-HCl (min 98.5 wt% purity, 78.8 wt% of free Lysine); L-Lysine Sulfate (min 51% free L-Lysine); Liquid Lysine 64 (min 50% free L-Lysine); and Liquid Lysine 30 (min 24% free L-Lysine).

Lysine Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Lysine Manufacturing Costs

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

L-Lysine-HCl Production from Glucose

This feasibility study approaches an economic analysis of L-Lysine Monohydrochloride (or L-Lysine-HCl) production from glucose syrup in the United States using a conventional fermentation process. The L-Lysine-HCl is recovered via ion-exchange absorption and crystallization.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Lysine E12A target a 100 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.

L-Lysine-HCl Production from Raw Sugar

This report presents the economics of Lysine production from raw sugar (sucrose). Sucrose is initially hydrolyzed into glucose and fructose (invert sugar). The invert sugars are then fermented to produce L-Lysine, which is recovered as L-Lysine-HCl. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in Germany.

The cost analyses presented in the report Lysine E21B target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) Germany-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

L-Lysine Sulfate Production from Glucose

This report approaches the economics of L-Lysine Sulfate production from glucose syrup. In the process examined, glucose syrup is submitted to fed-batch fermentation to produce L-Lysine. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Lysine E31A target a 100 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.

About Lysine. Lysine is an essential amino acid that cannot be synthesized by animal organisms and must be supplied in their diet. It is commercially produced as biologically active L-Lysine Monohydrochloride (L-Lysine-HCl) and L-Lysine Sulfate. As L-Lysine-HCl, it is a yellowish-white, crystalline powder.

Lysine Uses. The uses and applications of Lysine may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Lysine are L-Lysine-HCl (min 98.5 wt% purity,78.8 wt% of free Lysine); L-Lysine Sulfate (min 51% free L-Lysine); Liquid Lysine 64 (min 50% free L-Lysine); and Liquid Lysine 30 (min 24% free L-Lysine).

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.
