Intratec Solutions LLC, the unrivalled provider of techno-economic assessments for chemical and allied industries, is proud to announce the publication of Polypropylene via Gas Phase Process.
In this report, the production of polypropylene through the polymerization of propylene via a gas phase process is reviewed. Included in the analysis is an overview of the technology and economics of a method similar to the Dow UNIPOL TM process. Both the capital investment and the operating costs for plants erected on the US Gulf Coast are presented.
The economic analysis presented in this study is based on a 400 kta polypropylene plant. Two scenarios are analyzed: a standalone unit, obtaining feedstock at market prices and a plant integrated upstream with a propylene source, acquiring feedstock at a transfer price, below market average. The economic feasibility of both scenarios is presented and the actual market conditions for polypropylene production are discussed.
