This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) production from natural gas. The process examined is similar to one developed by The University of Queensland. In this process, methane contained in the natural gas feedstock is fermentated to Poly-3-hydroxybutyrate by a mixed methanotrophic culture of bacteria.
This report, PHB E31A, is a best-in-class examination of Polyhydroxybutyrate 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 . . .
