This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) from acetic acid and ethylene. The process examined is a typical vapor phase oxidation process. In this process, vapor acetic acid, ethylene and oxygen react in a catalytic multi-tube reactor, producing Vinyl Acetate. After separation/purification steps, VAM is obtained as the final product and unreacted ethylene and acetic acid are recycled back to the reactor.
This report, VAM E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Vinyl Acetate 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 . . .
