LDPE Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

LDPE (a.k.a. Low Density Polyethylene) the first thermoplastic polyolefin used commercially, is one of the three main types of polyethylene. LDPE differs from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) primarily due to its unique molecular structure, where large amounts of long-chain branching, impart different rheological behavior in both shear and extension. LDPE offers an unparalleled combination of low cost, ease of fabrication and balance of physical properties (toughness, flexibility and transparency). The first thermoplastic polyolefin used commercially, LDPE is still widely used in film, coating, molding, wire and cable insulations, among other applications.

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

LDPE via High-Pressure Tubular Process - Cost Analysis | LDPE E11A

This report presents the economics of a typical Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) production process from polymer grade (PG) ethylene in the USA, using a high-pressure tubular process.

Analysis: 400 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages

LDPE via High-Pressure Autoclave Process - Cost Analysis | LDPE E12A

This report analyses the economics of a typical Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) production process from polymer grade (PG) ethylene in the USA. Differently from the report "LDPE E11A", the process examined in this report is a high-pressure autoclave process.
