Linear Alpha Olefins Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Linear Alpha Olefins (a.k.a. LAO, Normal Alpha Olefins, NAO) are hydrocarbons with a chemical formula CnH2n, characterized by linear chains and one double bond at the primary or alpha position. Such hydrocarbons are important chemical intermediates, widely used in several industrial and consumer products according to carbon number and by chemical structure. By way of illustration, C4-C8 olefins are used to impart properties of LLDPE and HDPE, while C12-C16 olefins find applications in detergents and sanitizers.

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

Linear Alpha Olefins from Ethylene - Cost Analysis | LAO E11A

Feasibility analysis of Linear Alpha Olefins (LAO) production from ethylene in the USA. The process presented is similar to Shell Higher Olefins Process (SHOP) in which LAOs ranging from C4 to C20 are obtained.

Analysis: 425 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages

Linear Alpha Olefins from Ethylene - Cost Analysis | LAO E12A

Economics of Linear Alpha Olefins (LAO) production from ethylene in the United States. Differently from the report “LAO E11A”, the process examined in this report produces LAOs ranging from C4 to C30+ using a process similar to Chevron Phillips process.
