Propylene Oxide (a.k.a. PO, Epoxypropane, Methyl Oxirane) is a synthetic, highly-flammable, volatile, colorless liquid with ethereal odor that is soluble in water and miscible with most organic solvents. This organic, highly reactive compound is a major commodity chemical, as well as starting material for several products, from polymers and solvents to industrial fluids.
The uses and applications of Propylene Oxide may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Propylene Oxide are chemical grade (ca. 8% propane); and polymer grade (ca. 0.3% propane).

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.
