Vinyl Chloride
Vinyl Chloride
VCM
Vinyl Chloride Monomer
Vinyl Chloride (a.k.a. VCM, Vinyl Chloride Monomer, Chloroethene) is an organic compound, in the organochloride class. In room temperature, VCM is an ethereal/sweet odor gas; however, in industry, it is most often handled as a liquid. Vinyl Chloride is a major chemical commodity, and it is among the top twenty largest petrochemicals in world production.
The uses and applications of Vinyl Chloride may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Vinyl Chloride are technical/pure grade (min. 99.9% purity); and commercial grade (min. 98% purity).

Vinyl Chloride Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Vinyl Chloride Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Vinyl Chloride manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Vinyl Chloride process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Vinyl Chloride production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene Dichloride

This report presents the economics of Vinyl Chloride production from ethylene dichloride (EDC) in the United States using a typical thermal cracking process. In the process under analysis, EDC is thermally cracked to produce Vinyl Chloride, also generating hydrogen chloride as a by-product.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E11A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethane and Chlorine

This study reviews the costs associated with Vinyl Chloride production directly from ethane and chlorine. The process examined is an early stage process similar to that developed by European Vinyls Corporation, now owned by INEOS. The process is a direct ethane to vinyl chloride monomer route. The economic assessment assumes an industrial plant in the United States.

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E21A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Acetylene

This feasibility study reviews a typical hydrochlorination process for Vinyl Chloride production from acetylene. In this process, anhydrous hydrogen chloride is reacted in vapor phase with acetylene over a mercuric chloride catalyst producing Vinyl Chloride. The economic analysis presented is based on the construction of an industrial plant in the United States.

Details: 280 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E31A target a 280 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Vinyl Chloride from Ethylene and Chlorine (Balanced Process)

This study presents the economics of Vinyl Chloride (VCM) production from ethylene and chlorine in the United States. Initially, ethylene is chlorinated to produce ethylene dichloride (EDC). Then, EDC is thermally cracked yielding VCM and HCl. The HCl produced and ethylene are reacted with oxygen, yielding more EDC. This leads to a so called “balanced process”.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $1,499 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E41A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Vinyl Chloride from Ethylene and Chlorine (By-Product: HCl)

This study approaches a detailed cost analysis of Vinyl Chloride (VCM) production from ethylene and chlorine as raw materials. Initially, ethylene is chlorinated to produce ethylene dichloride (EDC). Then, EDC is thermally cracked yielding VCM. The economic analysis presented assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E42A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene and EDC

This report presents the production cost of Vinyl Chloride from ethylene and ethylene dichloride (EDC) in the United States. The process examined combines two process. First, Vinyl Chloride is produced via thermal cracking of EDC, which generates hydrogen chloride (HCl). It is then used as raw material with ethylene in the EDC production via oxychlorination.

Details: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report VCM E51A target a 500 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Vinyl Chloride Uses. The uses and applications of Vinyl Chloride may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Vinyl Chloride are technical/pure grade (min. 99.9% purity); and commercial grade (min. 98% purity).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
