This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Methyl Ester Sulfonate (MES) production from palm oil. The process examined consists of two steps: a transesterification step similar to Lurgi Transesterification process and a sulfonation step similar to Chemithon process. In this plant, palm oil and methanol are reacted forming methyl ester, which is then sulfonated to Methyl Ester Sulfonate.
This report, MES E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Methyl Ester Sulfonate 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 . . .
