Propionic Acid Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Propionic Acid, also known as propanoic acid, is a carboxylic acid normally found in nature, mainly in the form of its esters in some essential oils. This fatty acid is also formed in a number of enzymatic and fermentation processes. Widely used in the production of cellulose esters, plastic dispersions and herbicides, Propionic Acid has gained importance over the past years for applications related to preservation of forage cereals and animal feeds.

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

Propionic Acid Production from Ethylene - Cost Analysis | PA E11A

This report presents the economic analysis of Propionic Acid production from ethylene. In this process, ethylene undergoes a hydroformylation reaction to produce propionaldehyde, which is oxidized to Propionic Acid product. The economic analysis presented is based on a plant constructed in the USA.
