This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Styrene/Acrylonitrile (SAN) copolymer production from styrene and acrylonitrile. The process examined is a typical bulk polymerization process. In this process the continuous mass copolymerization of acrylonitrile and styrene to Styrene-Acrylonitrile Resin takes place in the presence of small quantities of ethylbenzene. The reaction product is submitted to a devolatilization step where monomers are recovered and recycled. The SAN melt passes through an extrusion and pelletizing system, is packed and stored.
This report, SAN E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Styrene Acrylonitrile Resin 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 . . .
