Polyalphaolefin
PAO
Polyalphaolefin (a.k.a. PAO) are oligomers made by oligomerization alpha olefins, usually 1-decene or a mixture of alpha olefins containing, in general, a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve carbon atoms. This process results in products with a high viscosity index (VI), ranging from 100 up to 1,000, excellent low-temperature flow and pour-point characteristics, good oxidation stability and compatibility with mineral oils, paints and seals. However, these products have poor fire resistance and biodegradability. PAOs are used in several synthetic products, such as greases, lubricants, fluids, and have emerged as crucial components in many applications and industries.
The uses and applications of Polyalphaolefin may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyalphaolefin are low viscosity (2?50 cSt @ 100 °C); high viscosity (50?100 cSt @ 100 °C); and ultra high viscosity (150?1,000 cSt @ 100 °C).

C4 to C18+ Linear Alpha Olefins Production

This feasibility study presents an economic analysis of Linear Alpha Olefins (LAO) production from ethylene in the United States. The process presented is similar to Shell Higher Olefins Process (SHOP) in which LAOs ranging from C4 to C18 are obtained. This process comprises three steps: oligomerization, isomerization and disproportionation.

Details: 425 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   109 pages From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report LAO E11A target a 425 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

C4 to C16+ Linear Alpha Olefins Production

This study presents a techno-economic analysis of LAO production from ethylene in the United States. In this report, a process similar to INEOS process is analyzed, producing linear alpha-olefins ranging from C4 to C16+, mainly C6 to C10. Ethylene oligomerization is carried out in a reaction with triethylaluminum produced on site, increasing the chain of the alkyls bonded aluminum.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
