Caprolactam Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Caprolactam (a.k.a. CPL, Azepan-2-one) is a cyclic amide widely used as a chemical intermediate. It is soluble in water, most oxygenated and chlorinated solvents, and some hydrocarbons. It is clear to milky white-colored liquid and has a mild, unpleasant smell.

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

Caprolactam Production from Benzene - Cost Analysis | Caprolactam E11A

This report presents the economics of Caprolactam production from benzene located in the USA. Initially, benzene is hydrogenated to cyclohexane, which is oxidized to cyclohexanone. Then, the cyclohexanone undergoes an oximation reaction with hydroxylamine. Finally, the oxime produced is rearranged to Caprolactam.

Caprolactam Production from Phenol - Cost Analysis | Caprolactam E51A

This feasibility study examines the economics of a process producing Caprolactam from phenol located in the USA. Initially, phenol is hydrogenated to form cyclohexanone. The cyclohexanone is then submitted to an oximation reaction with hydroxylamine. Finally, the cyclohexanone oxime produced is converted to caprolactam by Beckmann rearrangement.
