Propylene Glycol
Propylene Glycol
Propane-1,2-diol
Propylene Glycol (a.k.a. Propane-1,2-diol) is a clear, colorless, non-corrosive but strongly hygroscopic difunctional alcohol, in such a way that it must be protected from exposures to the atmosphere. Unique among the glycols, propylene glycol has low toxicity to humans. It was first manufactured in 1859 by the hydrolysis of propylene glycol diacetate, but it wasn’t until 1931 that it was first commercialized and used as a substitute for glycerol in pharmaceuticals.
The uses and applications of Propylene Glycol may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Propylene Glycol are industrial grade (99.5 wt% minimum purity) and USP grade (also 99.5 wt% minimum purity, but higher quality standards in terms of specific impurities, such as max. 0.5 ppm iron).

Propylene Glycol Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Propylene Glycol Manufacturing Costs

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

Propylene Glycol Production from Glycerol (Liquid-Phase Process)

This study presents the economics of Propylene Glycol production from glycerol using a liquid-phase process similar to Suppes process in the United States. In this process, glycerol is submitted to hydrogenation, yielding propylene glycol.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Propylene Glycol E11A target a 120 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.

Propylene Glycol Production from Glycerol (Vapor-Phase Process)

This report presents the economics of Propylene Glycol production from glycerol in the United States. The process presented occurs in vapor-phase, similarly to Davy Technologies process.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Propylene Glycol E12A target a 120 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.

Propylene Glycol from Chlorine and Propylene

This report presents the economics of Propylene Glycol production from chlorine and chemical grade (CG) propylene in the United States, via a typical hydration process. In this process, chlorine, propylene and water are combined to make propylene chlorohydrin, which reacts with inorganic base to yield the oxide. The oxide is then hydrolyzed to propylene glycol.

Details: 200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Propylene Glycol E21A target a 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.

Propylene Glycol from Propylene Oxide

This report analyses the economics of Propylene Glycol production from propylene oxide in the United States, via a typical hydration process. In this analysis, propylene oxide is hydrolyzed to propylene glycol. Dipropylene glycol is produced as by-product.

Details: 200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Propylene Glycol E31A target a 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.

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.
