Styrene
Vinylbenzene
Ethenylbenzene
Styrene (a.k.a. Vinylbenzene, Ethenylbenzene, Phenylethene) is an organic compound, the simplest monomer in the aromatic hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless, oily liquid, with aromatic odor, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic compounds. It was first isolated in the nineteenth century; however, it only began being industrially commercialized in the 1930s, with the development of the dehydrogenation process, which allowed for styrene’s polymerization. Currently, styrene is one of the most important aromatic members, being by far the most commercialized.

Styrene Production from Ethylbenzene

This report examines the costs related to Styrene production from ethylbenzene in the United States, via a typical adiabatic dehydrogenation process.

Details: 700 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   109 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Styrene E11A target a 700 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Styrene Production from Propylene & Ethylbenzene

This study presents the economics of Styrene production from chemical grade (CG) propylene and ethylbenzene in the United States. The process examined is a Propylene Oxide/Styrene Monomer (POSM) technology similar to the one owned by LyondellBasell. This process involves ethylbenzene oxidation, epoxidation, hydrogenation and dehydration steps.

Details: 850 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report Styrene E21A target a 850 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Styrene Production from Ethane & Benzene (H2 as Co-Product)

This report presents the economics of Styrene production from ethane and benzene in the United States, with pure hydrogen as by-product. In this report, ethylbenzene (EB) is first generated from benzene and recycled ethylene. Then, fresh ethane and the EB are dehydrogenated to form ethylene and Styrene. The process analyzed is based on concepts proposed in patents issued to Dow and Snamprogetti.

Details: 750 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report Styrene E31A target a 750 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Styrene Production from Ethane & Benzene (H2 as Fuel)

This study presents the costs associated with Styrene production in the United States. In this report, ethylbenzene (EB) is first generated from benzene and recycled ethylene. Then, fresh ethane and the EB are dehydrogenated to form ethylene and Styrene. The hydrogen produced is valued as fuel. The process analyzed is based on concepts proposed in patents issued to Dow and Snamprogetti.

Details: 750 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report Styrene E32A target a 750 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Styrene Production from Methanol & Toluene

This report analyses the economics of Styrene production from methanol and toluene in the United States. The process evaluated is similar to Exelus Styrene Monomer Technology (ExSyM) technology. In this process, toluene is submitted to alkylation with methanol over zeolite catalyst, yielding styrene.

Details: 750 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Styrene E41A target a 750 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Styrene Production from Ethylene & Benzene

This report analyzes the economics of an integrated plant producing Styrene from benzene and ethylene located in the United States. The following processes are encompassed: (1) alkylation for ethylbenzene production from benzene and ethylene; and (2) catalytic dehydrogenation process for Styrene production from ethylbenzene.

Details: 700 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report Styrene E51A target a 700 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Styrene Production from Polystyrene Waste

This report assesses the economics of Styrene production from polystyrene waste via pyrolysis in the United States. In this process, polystyrene waste is submitted to pyrolysis in a fluidized bed reactor. The pyrolysis gas is then sent to a distillation section where styrene is recovered along with toluene and fuel oil.

Details: 2 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $999

The cost analyses presented in the report Styrene E61A target a 2 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.
