This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES) production from chlorosulfonic acid, lauryl ethoxylate, and sodium hydroxide. The process examined is a typical sulfation process. In this plant, lauryl ethoxylate reacts with chlorosulfonic acid, in a sulfation reaction. The product is neutralized with sodium hydroxide, producing the surfactant. The final product obtained is SLES, containing 70 wt% of active matter. In addition, hydrochloric acid (33 wt%) is also generated as by-product.
This report, SLES E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate 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 . . .
