This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Maleic Anhydride production from butane via partial oxidation process. The process examined is similar to the one owned by Huntsman. In this process, Maleic Anhydride is produced by the partial oxidation reaction of n-butane with oxygen carried out in a fixed-bed reactor, using a vanadium–phosphorus oxide (VPO) catalyst supported on sillca. The reactor effluent is sent to a solvent-based recovery system for Maleic Anhydride separation.
This report, MAN E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Maleic Anhydride 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 . . .
