2-Ethylhexanol Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

2-Ethylhexanol ranks, after the lighter alcohols (methanol to butanol), as the most important synthetic alcohol. It is an eight-carbon branched chain alcohol and appears as a clear, colorless liquid, with a characteristic odor. It is an organic solvent miscible in almost all organic solvents and practically insoluble in water and one of the most important oxo alcohols commercialized.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining 2-Ethylhexanol production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on 2-Ethylhexanol production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

2-Ethylhexanol Production from Propylene and Syngas - Cost Analysis | 2-EH E11A

This report presents the economics of 2-Ethylhexanol (2-EH) production from propylene and syngas located in the United States. Initially, propylene reacts with syngas in a hydroformylation reaction, yielding n-butyraldehyde. This step uses a conventional OXO-alcohol technology. Then, the n-butyraldehyde is submitted to an aldolization, and is subsequently dehydrated to 2-ethylpropylacrolein (EPA). Finally, the EPA is hydrogenated, yielding 2-EH.
