This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis (based on 2018/19 economic data) of Sodium Hydroxide production from lime and sodium carbonate. The process examined is a conventional lime-soda process. In this process, calcium hydroxide is generated by treating lime (calcium oxide) with water. Then, calcium hydroxide reacts with soda ash (sodium carbonate) forming sodium hydroxide and Calcium Carbonate. Precipitated calcium carbonate, in solid form, and Sodium Hydroxide solution (50 wt%) are obtained as final products.
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
- Additional owner’s costs
- Working capital
