This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS) production from styrene. The process examined is a typical continuous bulk polymerization process. In this process, styrene is submitted to a pre-polymerization and a polymerization step, both conducted in continuous stirred-tank reactors.
This report, PS E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Polystyrene production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
