Request a Custom Production Cost Report

Intratec has a broad portfolio of more than 782 reports, which is constantly growing. However, there is still a multitude of manufacturing processes not yet examined in our portfolio.

If you are interested in a process not yet covered by our Production Cost Reports, that is not a problem! We can develop a custom report examining the process of your interest, based on recent economic data (2019 Q1) 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 . . .

Steps to Request a Custom Report

1

Identify the Product and the Process of Your Interest

Identify the product and the respective production process you are interested in, by filling the brief form below. Show More

In the form, some basic information, identified with (*), are required.

Specific assumptions to be considered in the custom report development, related to industrial site configuration and pricing basis, may also be provided. If not provided, the custom report will be developed based on assumptions defined by Intratec.

Providing references about the process (for instance patents, technical articles, brochures, etc), although not required, is highly recommended. Good references about the process will help Intratec in the development of a better custom report.

Finally, basic contact information is also necessary, only for sending back the quotation for report development.

Select the Scope of the Custom Report

Select one among three options available for the custom report scope, knowing preliminary budgets and delivery times. Show More

The differences among the three scope options – basic, extended and advanced - are related to the amount/depth of the content, the report format and additional features. The advanced scope is the best option for those needing comprehensive, in-depth reports, as it includes process flow diagram, plant construction costs breakdowns and several other cost analyses.

Custom reports with basic scope are delivered as online PDFs, reports with extended scope are delivered as downloadable, non-printable PDFs and reports with advanced scope are delivered as downloadable, printable PDFs. Also, only custom reports with advanced scope include technical support.

In this step, one scope option must be selected for the custom report.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a custom report? Why request one?

Intratec Production Cost Reports are the best-in-class professional studies examining production processes, with up-to-date analysis of capital and operating costs. A custom report, basically, is a Production Cost Report developed on demand, focused on a production process a customer is interested in.

By requesting a custom report, you will have an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology of your interest, 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...

What it takes to request a custom report? Are meetings or phone calls necessary?

Requesting a custom Production Cost Report is very convenient and straightforward, with no meetings or phone calls whatsoever.

You need first to submit a request for quotation, by following the steps above. After you submit your request, within 2 business days you will receive an email from Intratec with the definitive quotation for developing the custom report, the development time required and further instructions for concluding the purchase of the report, if you wish.

What is the content of a custom report? What analyses will I have?

Besides identifying the process to be examined, customers can choose one among three options for the scope of a custom report, related to the depth of the analyses presented in the report: the basic, extended and advanced scope.

The basic scope includes a description of an industrial plant (main process units and site infrastructure) and an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. For those needing more in-depth, comprehensive analyses, Intratec offers the extended and the advanced scope options.

The extended scope includes everything of the basic scope plus an extra appendix, in which it is presented the following analyses: Economics of Different Capacities; Utilities Consumption Breakdown; Construction Implementation Schedule.

Finally, the advanced scope includes everything of the extended scope plus another extra appendix, in which it is presented: Process Unit Cost Breakdown per Equipment; Infrastructure Cost Breakdown per Equipment; Plant Construction Cost Breakdown per Discipline; Process Flow Diagrams.

How will Intratec develop the custom report I request?

Custom reports, like all Intratec Production Cost Reports, are based on extensive, in-depth bibliographical researchs targeting information about industrial processes drawn from public sources, including patents, encyclopedias, text books, technical papers and non-confidential information disclosed by licensors, duly reviewed by Intratec.

After this bibliographical research, the report is developed according to a consistent methodology, distilled from the expertise gained supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of chemical markets and process economics, over more than 15 years.

Our methodology ensures that our reports are reliable, structured, and continuously tested and proven by the many corporations, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on those reports.

We highly encourage you to check our Report Development Methodology.

I can see a preliminary budget already…what does it mean? Is it the price of the custom report?

The preliminary budget is an estimated price for developing the custom report, calculated based on the process to be examined and the scope of the new report. Once you submit your request for quotation, the budget for the custom report may be reviewed by Intratec according to: the accuracy of the information provided about the process, process complexity, availability of information about the process, etc.
