Vinyl Acetate Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Vinyl Acetate (a.k.a. VAM, Vinyl Acetate Monomer, Ethenyl Acetate) is an important vinyl ester, used in the manufacture of many polymers and resins. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet, fruity smell. On an industrial scale, the dominant production route of Vinyl Acetate is based on the reaction of ethylene with acetic acid and oxygen in the gas phase on heterogeneous catalysts containing palladium.

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

Vinyl Acetate from Acetic Acid and Ethylene - Cost Analysis | VAM E11A

This study presents the economics of Vinyl Acetate production from acetic acid and ethylene in the USA, via a typical vapor-phase oxidation process. In this process, vapor acetic acid, ethylene and oxygen react in a catalytic multi-tube reactor, producing Vinyl Acetate, which is further purified.

Vinyl Acetate from Acetic Acid and Acetylene - Cost Analysis | VAM E21A

This feasibility study examines the economics of a process producing Vinyl Acetate from acetic acid and acetylene. In the process examined, acetic acid and acetylene react in the vapor phase in the presence of a supported metal catalyst to produce vinyl acetate. The economic analysis performed is based on a plant constructed in the USA.
