This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Methyl tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE) production from butane and methanol. The process examined makes use of the following catalytic processes: n-butane isomerization, similar to UOP's Butamer process; isobutane dehydrogenation, similar to UOP's Oleflex process; and isobutylene etherification, similar to UOP's Ethermax process.
This report, MTBE E41A, is a best-in-class examination of MTBE 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 . . .
