Use of Propylene Splitter to Improve Polypropylene Business report is a review of the purification of RG propylene into PG propylene, analyzing a propylene purification unit installed inside a polypropylene plant. Also, a comparison of building such unit inside refineries is included.

Both capital investment and operating costs for a propylene purification unit operating in the US Gulf Coast, China, and Germany are presented. The economic analysis presented in this report is based on a purification unit installed in a 400 kta polypropylene plant. The estimated CAPEX for such unit is USD 67 million on the US Gulf Coast. China presented the lowest CAPEX and OPEX, followed by the USA and Germany, respectively. The internal rate of return (IRR) in building a propylene purification unit inside a polypropylene plant is more than 30% on US Gulf Coast.

    • Propylene Purification Units can Aid Polypropylene Plants to Increase MarginsIntratec’s recent publication unveils the attractiveness of constructing a propylene splitter insidepolypropylene plants in the US Gulf Coast.Houston, TX – In its most recent publication, Intratec Solutions LLC (www.intratec.us), a Houston publisher andchemical process consulting firm, scrutinizes the purification of low purity propylene streams containing largeamounts of propane into polymer grade (PG) propylene, the most pure grade available, analyzing a purification unitinside a polypropylene plant. Also, a comparison of constructing such unit inside refineries is included. According to the report, PG propylene consumers are constructing propylene/propane separation units to become more competitive and to diversify their raw material supplier base and production cost structure. In fact, in July 2012, Braskem, a major petrochemical player, acquired the propylene/propane splitter assets at the Marcus Hook refinery, Pennsylvania, to generate PG propylene for its polypropylene plant. The publication presents a purification unit installed in a 400 kta polypropylene plant. In the US Gulf Coast, the estimated CAPEX for such improvement unit is evaluated in USD 67 million. China presents the lowest CAPEX and OPEX, followed by the USA and Germany, respectively. The study also points out that in comparison to refineries, polypropylene manufacturing plants do not have the advantage of excess low-level heat sources available, as well as a supply of coolingwater, which minimizes additional utilities supply units installation. However, the attractiveness of the improvementin polypropylene units is proven by the internal rate of return of more than 30% in the US Gulf Coast.Use of Propylene Splitter to Improve Polypropylene Business is part of the Improvement Economics Program (IME),and is available at established distribution channels like Amazon.com and HP Magcloud. The report is also offered indigital format at Intratec’s website, at an introductory price of US$ 829.
