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 for humans. It was first manufactured in 1859 by 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. It is commonly used in unsaturated polyester resins, but also in foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and other applications.

Propylene Glycol Production from Glycerol - Cost Analysis | Propylene Glycol E11A

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

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

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

Propylene Glycol Production from Glycerol - Cost Analysis | Propylene Glycol E12A

This report presents the economics of Propylene Glycol production from glycerol in the USA. Differently from the report "Propylene Glycol E11A", the process presented occurs in vapor-phase, similarly to Davy Technologies process.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

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

Propylene Glycol from Chlorine and Propylene - Cost Analysis | Propylene Glycol E21A

This report presents the economics of Propylene Glycol production from chlorine and chemical grade (CG) propylene in the USA, 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   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report Propylene Glycol E21A target a 200 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.

Propylene Glycol from Propylene Oxide - Cost Analysis | Propylene Glycol E31A

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

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.
