This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Polypropylene production from propane via the integration of two production processes: propane dehydrogenation followed by propylene bulk phase polymerization. In the process examined, the propane dehydrogenation step is similar to UOP Oleflex and the polymerization step is similar to LyondellBasell Spheripol. Initially, polymer grade (PG) propylene is produced via propane dehydrogenation in the presence of a platinum-based catalyst in moving-bed reactors. Then, PG propylene is polymerized in loop reactors, to produce Polypropylene homopolymer.
This report, PP E43A, is a best-in-class examination of Polypropylene 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 . . .
