Propanediol
PDO
Trimethylene Glycol
Propanediol (a.k.a. PDO, Trimethylene Glycol, 1,3-Propanediol, Bio-Propanediol) is a three-carbon diol compound, which appears as a colorless to pale yellow viscous liquid, soluble in water, ethanol and ether. Propanediol is usually produced by hydration of acrolein, or via hydroformylation of ethylene oxide and subsequent hydrogenation of the intermediate 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde. It may also be produced by microorganisms using renewable sources, such as corn syrup and glycerol, as feedstock. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Propanediol or Green Propanediol.

You can find below reports focused on Propanediol production processes currently offered by Intratec. If none of the off-the-shelf reports listed below fits your needs, you can request a bespoke report tailored to your needs, for as low as USD 2,900!

Bio-Propanediol Production from Glucose

This report presents the economics of 1,3-Propanediol (PDO) production from glucose syrup using a fermentation process similar to the one developed by DuPont. The economic assessment assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 50 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report PDO E11A target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Bio-Propanediol Production from Raw Sugar

This study approaches the economics of 1,3-Propanediol (PDO) production from raw sugar using a fermentation process similar to the one developed by DuPont. Raw sugar is used as the feedstock, being first hydrolyzed to glucose and fructose (invert sugars), which are then fermentated to produce PDO.

Details: 50 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report PDO E21B target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annun) Germany-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Bio-Propanediol Production from Glycerol

This report presents the economics of the production of 1,3-Propanediol (PDO) production from crude glycerol using a fermentation process in the United States. The microorganism used is Klebsiella pneumoniae.

Details: 50 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $999

The cost analyses presented in the report PDO E31A target a 50 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.
