Acrylonitrile Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Acrylonitrile (a.k.a. 2-Propenenitrile, Prop-2-enenitrile, Vinyl Cyanide) is an organic compound, consisting of a vinyl group linked to a nitrile, with worldwide production of more than 10 billion pounds per year. It is a colorless, volatile liquid with onion-like odor. It is a very reactive compound, due to its high polar nature (arising from the presence of the nitrogen heteroatom) and unsaturation. In the absence of a hydroquinone inhibitor, it polymerizes spontaneously when exposed to light, heat or in the presence of a strong alkali.

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

Acrylonitrile Production from Propylene - Cost Analysis | Acrylonitrile E11A

This report presents the economics of Acrylonitrile production from chemical grade (CG) propylene in the USA. The process reviewed is a propylene ammoxidation technology using fluidized bed reactor, in which propylene reacts with ammonia, producing Acrylonitrile, and generating acetonitrile and hydrogen cyanide as by-products.

Acrylonitrile Production from Propylene - Cost Analysis | Acrylonitrile E12A

This report also approaches the economics of Acrylonitrile production from chemical grade (CG) propylene in the USA. Differently from the report "Acrylonitrile E11A", which employs a fluid bed reactor, this study analyzes a fixed bed reactor ammoxidation process.

Acrylonitrile Production from Propane - Cost Analysis | Acrylonitrile E21A

This study presents the economics of Acrylonitrile production via propane ammoxidation. The process is similar to the one proposed by PTT Asahi Chemical (PTTAC), consisting in the reaction of propane with ammonia, producing Acrylonitrile. Acetonitrile and hydrogen cyanide are produced as by-products. The analysis assumes a plant located in the United States,
