This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Methionine Hydroxy Analog production from methional and hydrogen cyanide (HCN). The process examined is similar to the one developed by Novus. This process first involves the reaction between methional and hydrogen cyanide, producing the hydroxy methylthiobutyronitrile (HMBN) intermediate. The HMBN is further hydrolyzed to produce Methionine Hydroxy Analog.
This report, Methionine E51A, is a best-in-class examination of Methionine production, providing 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 . . .
