This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Vinyl Chloride monomer (VCM) production from ethylene and chlorine via a balanced process. The process examined is a typical balanced process. In this plant, ethylene is chlorinated to produce ethylene dichloride (EDC), which is thermally cracked, yielding VCM and hydrogen chloride (HCl). The HCl produced is reacted with ethylene and oxygen in an oxychlorination reaction, generating EDC intermediate, to be converted to additional VCM.
This report, VCM E41A, is a best-in-class examination of Vinyl Chloride 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 . . .
