Propionic Acid
Propionic Acid
Propionic Acid, also known as propanoic acid, is a carboxylic acid normally found in nature, mainly in the form of its esters in some essential oils. This fatty acid is also formed in a number of enzymatic and fermentation processes. Widely used in the production of cellulose esters, plastic dispersions and herbicides, Propionic Acid has gained importance over the past years for applications related to preservation of forage cereals and animal feeds.
The uses and applications of Propionic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Propionic Acid are minimum purity of 99.5 wt%.

Propionic Acid Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Propionic Acid Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Propionic Acid manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Propionic Acid process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Propionic Acid production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Propionic Acid Production from Ethylene

This report presents the economic analysis of Propionic Acid production from ethylene. In this process, ethylene undergoes a hydroformylation reaction to produce propionaldehyde, which is oxidized to Propionic Acid product. The economic analysis presented is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 80 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   111 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PA E11A target a 80 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.

Propionic Acid Production from Propionaldehyde

This report presents the economic analysis of Propionic Acid production from propionaldehyde (i.e. propanal). In this process, propionaldehyde is subjected to a oxidation reaction that generates Propionic Acid product. The economic analysis presented is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 80 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PA E21A target a 80 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.

Ethylene Production from Ethane

This report presents the economics of Polymer Grade (PG) Ethylene production from ethane in the United States. In the process under analysis, ethane is thermally cracked in pyrolysis furnaces through the use of steam, yielding Ethylene. A hydrogen-rich gas is generated as by-product.

Details: 1,200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   108 pages From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Ethylene E11A target a 1,200 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.

Ethylene from Ethanol (Similar to Chematur Process)

This report provides the economics of Green Polymer Grade (PG) Ethylene production from hydrous ethanol in the United States using a dehydration process examined in this report is similar to the processes developed by Chematur and Petron. In this process, the reaction is carried out multiple reactors in series and a single furnace.

Details: 300 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   108 pages From $799 USD

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.
