Each Intratec report targets a specific production process, and is available in three different versions: basic, extended and advanced.

The basic version describes the industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs.

For those needing more in-depth, comprehensive analyses, Intratec offers the extended and the advanced versions.

The extended version includes everything of the basic version 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 version includes everything of the extended version 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.

Please keep in mind that significant portions of our reports are intended to fully explain concepts/assumptions utilized throughout the study; thus the content of all chapters/appendixes often reference one another.

That being the case, Intratec only sells reports in the three aforementioned versions, basic, advanced and extended. We do not sell report excerpts.
