Maleic Anhydride Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Maleic Anhydride (a.k.a. MAN) is an organic compound, in the acid anhydride class. At room temperature, it is a white crystalline solid, with an acrid odor, soluble in water and in most organic solvents. MAN melts at 52.8ºC. It is a multifunctional chemical intermediate in several chemical routes. Its major use is in the production of unsaturared polyester resins (UPR).

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

Maleic Anhydride Production from Butane - Cost Analysis | MAN E11A

This feasibility study presents an analysis of Maleic Anhydride production from n-butane in the USA using a process similar to the one developed by Huntsman. In this process, maleic anhydride is produced by the partial oxidation reaction of n-butane with oxygen carried out in a fixed-bed reactor, using a vanadium–phosphorus oxide (VPO) catalyst supported on silica.

Maleic Anhydride Production from Butane - Cost Analysis | MAN E12A

This study presents an economic analysis of Maleic Anhydride production from n-butane in the USA. Similarly to the process presented in the report “MAN E11A”, the process examined in this report also uses a fixed-bed reactor, but, in this case, the recovery system is aqueous-based. This process is similar to Scientific Design process.
