Chlorine Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Chlorine (a.k.a. Cl2) figures among the most important chemical commodities, being used in the manufacture of a myriad of day-to-day life products. In fact, the state of development of a country’s chemical industry can be measured by, among other factors, the country’s chlorine production. Molecular chlorine is a yellowish green gas (or liquified gas), with pungent and suffocating odor. It is a strong oxidant and a chlorinating agent, adding to double bonds in aliphatic compounds or undergoing substitution reactions with both aliphatic and aromatic compounds. It is an indispensable intermediate in the chemical industry, employed in the manufacture of a multitude of end products.

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

Chlorine Production from Sodium Chloride - Cost Analysis | Chlorine E11A

This report presents the economics of Chlorine production from sodium chloride via a membrane plant located in the USA. In the process under analysis, an aqueous solution of sodium chloride (brine) is decomposed electrolytically in a membrane cell, producing Chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen.

Analysis: 500 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages

Chlorine Production from Sodium Chloride - Cost Analysis | Chlorine E12A

As in the report “Chlorine E11A”, this study also presents the economics of Chlorine production in the USA, except that the process reviewed is a diaphragm technology.

Analysis: 550 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages

Chlorine Production from Sodium Chloride - Cost Analysis | Chlorine E13A

Different from reports “Chlorine E11A” and “Chlorine E12A”, this report shows the economics of Chlorine production in the USA using a mercury cell process.

Analysis: 250 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages

Chlorine Production from Hydrogen Chloride - Cost Analysis | Chlorine E22A

It presents the costs associated with Chlorine production in the USA. Differently from the report “Chlorine E21A”, the process reviewed in this study is similar to the ThyssenKrupp Uhde hydrogen chloride electrolysis process. In this process, HCl aqueous solution is decomposed electrolytically in a diaphragm cell, producing Chlorine and hydrogen.

Analysis: 85 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages
