This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis (based on 2017/18 economic data) of Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES) production from chlorosulfonic acid, lauryl ethoxylate, and sodium hydroxide. The process examined is a typical sulfation process. In the process examined, lauryl ethoxylate reacts with chlorosulfonic acid (sulfation). 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.

The economic analysis provided in the report targets a United States-based plant and discloses:

  • All costs involved in starting a new industrial plant (capital investment):
    • Cost of construction:
      • Main process units
      • Surrounding infrastructure
      • Contingency
    • Additional owner’s costs
    • Working capital
    • Plant commissioning and start-up
  • All costs surrounding the production of Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate:
    • Raw materials acquisition & utilities generation (manufacturing variable costs)
    • Labor wages, maintenance, operating charges, overhead, taxes and insurance (manufacturing fixed costs)
    • Administration, research and product distribution (corporate overhead costs)
  • Relevant technical coefficients:
    • Raw materials consumption & products generation
    • Labor requirements
  • Process block flow diagram
  • Description of the industrial plant:
    • Main process units
    • Site infrastructure
