Propylene Glycol Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Propylene Glycol (a.k.a. Propane-1,2-diol) is a clear, colorless, non-corrosive but strongly hygroscopic difunctional alcohol, in such a way that it must be protected from exposures to the atmosphere. Unique among the glycols, propylene glycol has low toxicity for humans. It was first manufactured in 1859 by hydrolysis of propylene glycol diacetate, but it wasn’t until 1931 that it was first commercialized and used as a substitute for glycerol in pharmaceuticals. It is commonly used in unsaturated polyester resins, but also in foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and other applications.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Propylene Glycol 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).

Propylene Glycol from Propylene Oxide - Cost Analysis | Propylene Glycol E31A

This report analyses the economics of Propylene Glycol production from propylene oxide in the USA, via a typical hydration process. In this analysis, propylene oxide is hydrolyzed to propylene glycol. Dipropylene glycol is produced as by-product.
