Reports Available in Subscriptions

Acrylic Acid (a.k.a. Acroleic Acid, Propenoic Acid) is a moderately strong unsaturated carboxylic acid, consisting of an ethene substituted by a carboxy group. It is a colorless liquid with a strong acrid odor. The presence of a carboxy group in its structure provides anionic characteristics and higher reactivity with epoxides and alcohols. Acrylic acid is also a versatile monomer employed as building block for a variety of polymer formulations.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Acrylic Acid 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 Acrylic Acid production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Acrylic Acid from 3-Hydroxypropionic Acid - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E01A

This report presents the economics of Acrylic Acid production from 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP). 3-HP is submitted to a dehydration reaction to generate Glacial Acrylic Acid. The reaction is carried out in vapor phase in a reactor column. The economic analysis approaches a plant located in the United States.

Acrylic Acid Production from Propylene - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E11A

This report presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from chemical grade (CG) propylene in a plant located in the United States. The process consists in a two stage vapor-phase oxidation of propylene, yieding Acrylic Acid, which is then purified to obtain the Ester-Grade product.

Acrylic Acid Production from Glycerol - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E21A

It presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from crude glycerol in the USA using a two-step process similar to Arkema technology. In the process examined, crude glycerol, obtained from biodiesel plants, is dehydrated to acrolein, which is subsequently oxidized to Acrylic Acid.

Bio-Acrylic Acid Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E31A

This report shows a feasibility study of bio-based Acrylic Acid production from glucose syrup in a plant assumed to be located in the United States. The process is based on the fermentation route of glucose, yielding Acrylic Acid, similar to the speculative process proposed by the Delft University of Technology.

Bio-Acrylic Acid Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E32A

This report presents the economics of bio-based Acrylic Acid production from glucose syrup in the USA using a fermentation process similar to Cargill process. Differently from the process examined in the report “Acrylic Acid E31A”, initially, glucose is fermented to produce 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HPA), which is then dehydrated to produce Acrylic Acid.

Acrylic Acid Production from Natural Gas - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E81A

This report presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from natural gas in the USA. Initially, methane in the natural gas feed is cracked to acetylene which is reacted carbon monoxide generated by feed combustion, yielding Acrylic Acid.

Analysis: 150 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages

Acrylic Acid Production from Propane - Cost Analysis | Acrylic Acid E91A

This report presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from propane in the USA. Initially, propane undergoes oxydehydrogenation in the presence of steam to form propylene, which is then oxidized in vapor phase to generate acrylic acid.
