Isopropyl Alcohol Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Isopropyl Alcohol (a.k.a. Isopropanol, 2-Propanol) is a colorless and flammable liquid with a strong odor that is widely employed in solvent applications. Isopropyl alcohol was one of the first petrochemical products to be manufactured - it has been produced since 1920. Today, it is one of the most produced lower alcohols (C1 to C5 alcohols), the third in commercial production, behind methanol and ethanol.

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

Isopropyl Alcohol Production from RG Propylene - Cost Analysis | Isopropanol E11A

This report presents the economics of Isopropyl Alcohol production from refinery grade (RG) propylene, via a typical indirect propylene hydration process. In this process, RG propylene reacts with sulfuric acid to form isopropyl alcohol sulfates. Those sulfates are then reacted with water to form Isopropanol. The study assumes a plant located on the US Gulf Coast.

Isopropyl Alcohol Production from Acetone - Cost Analysis | Isopropanol E31A

In this report, it is approached the economics of Isopropyl Alcohol production from acetone in a typical acetone hydrogenation process, also assuming an industrial plant located on the US Gulf Coast. The reaction is carried out in liquid phase, in two fixed bed reactors in series, catalyzed by a Raney nickel catalyst.
