Sodium Hydroxide Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Sodium Hydroxide (a.k.a. Caustic Soda, NaOH, Lye) is a major inorganic compound, used in several industries. It is a white, translucent crystalline solid. It is commonly referred to as caustic soda due to its corrosive action on many substances - it decomposes proteins at room temperatures and may cause chemical burn to human bodies. Although it does not occur in nature, sodium hydroxide has been manufactured on large scale for many years from readily obtainable raw materials and is used in numerous industrial processes.

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

Sodium Hydroxide via Membrane Process - Cost Analysis | Sodium Hydroxide E11A

This report presents the economics of Sodium Hydroxide production from sodium chloride in the USA, via a typical membrane process. In this process, sodium chloride is decomposed electrolytically, producing sodium hydroxide. Chlorine and hydrogen are generated as by-products in the process.

Analysis: 550 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages

Sodium Hydroxide via Diaphragm Process - Cost Analysis | Sodium Hydroxide E12A

It presents the economics of Sodium Hydroxide production from brine in the USA. Differently from the report "Sodium Hydroxide E11A", the process examined in this report is a typical diaphragm process. Chlorine and hydrogen are also generated as by-products in the process.

Analysis: 600 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages

Sodium Hydroxide via Lime-Soda Process - Cost Analysis | Sodium Hydroxide E21A

This report presents the economics of Sodium Hydroxide production from lime and sodium carbonate in the USA, via a conventional lime-soda process. In this process, calcium hydroxide is generated by treating lime with water. Then, calcium hydroxide reacts with soda ash. Besides Sodium Hydroxide, Precipitated Calcium Carbonate is also obtained as product.

Sodium Hydroxide Flakes Production - Cost Analysis | Sodium Hydroxide E31A

This report presents the economics of solid caustic soda flakes production starting from a 50 wt% caustic soda solution in water. In this process, caustic soda is concentrated to about 99 wt% and the resulting melt is cooled and processed into flakes. The analysis is based on plant located in the United States.
