Feasibility Studies: Acrylic Acid Manufacturing

  1. 1. Know the capital investment required Examine the operating costs & raw materials consumption Acrylic Acid is a moderately strong carboxylic acid primarily used as an intermediate in the production of acrylates esters. Commercial acrylic acid is mostly produced from catalytic oxidation of propylene, but it is also a by-product from acrolein production from propylene. The Intratec portfolio (www.intratec.us/our-portfolio) includes reports examining specific Acrylic Acid production processes. Each report presents one-time costs associated with the construction of an industrial plant and the continuing costs associated with the daily operation of such a plant. General information included in our reports is presented below. AN INTRODUCTION TO ACRYLIC ACID PROCESS TECHNOLOGY THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING * Description & applications * Production pathways diagram * Product(s) generated & raw material(s) consumed * Physico-chemistry highlights * Industrial site production capacity definition * Detailed process block flow scheme & description * Key process input & output figures (including raw material(s) consumption) * Labor requirements CAPITAL INVESTMENT BREAKDOWN * Total fixed capital required (ISBL, OSBL and contingency) * Working capital * Costs incurred during industrial plant commissioning and start-up * Multi-regional fixed capital analysis PRODUCTION COST DETAILED LOOK * Manufacturing variable costs (raw materials and utilities required) * Manufacturing fixed costs (e.g., labor and maintenance costs, operating charges, plant overhead) * Depreciation and corporate overhead costs * Production cost history (4-year timeframe) Understand Acrylic Acid production costs Industrial Process Economics About Acrylic Acid Reports Coverage of Acrylic Acid Process Economics Reports Each report examines one specific Acrylic Acid production process, including: PROCESS ECONOMICS QUICK SUMMARY TABLE LABOR WAGE RATES AND PRICING BASIS REFERENCES & ANALYSIS METHODOLOGY
  2. 2. About our Methodology Intratec has distilled the expertise gained from more than a decade supporting companies worldwide to devise consistent methodologies, which ensures the development of holistic, coherent and consistent reports. Intratec's highly experienced engineers start the development of process economics reports with in-depth, comprehensive research on the technology examined, encompassing patents and available technical literature, non-confidential information provided by technology licensors and Intratec's in-house database. This exhaustive research provides a clear and consistent understanding of the process technology studied, including chemical, biological and/or physical transformations occurring in the target process, as well as reactants required and products formation. That knowledge is compiled into a detailed process block flow scheme and a mapping of key process input & output figures (including raw materials consumption). Finally, in the assessment of the economic figures of the process technology under analysis, Intratec’s team relies on an extensive in- house database and robust cost models. Our cost models were founded on a number of established cost-estimating methods, based on mathematical and statistical processing of an extensive volume of actual cost data of well-known industrial processes. For a 10-page description of our methodology, visit www.intratec.us/reports/industrial-processes-economics Reports Focused on Acrylic Acid Production Economics ECONOMICS OF ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM PROPYLENE (ACRYLIC ACID E11A) This report presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from chemical grade (CG) propylene in the USA using a typical propylene oxidation process. ECONOMICS OF ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM GLYCEROL (ACRYLIC ACID E21A) It presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from crude glycerol in the USA using a two-step process similar to Arkema technology. In the process examined, crude glycerol, obtained from biodiesel plants, is dehydrated to acrolein and subsequently oxidized to Acrylic Acid. ECONOMICS OF BIO-ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM GLUCOSE (ACRYLIC ACID E31A) This report shows a feasibility study of bio-based Acrylic Acid production from glucose syrup using in the USA using a fermentation process similar to the speculative process proposed by the Delft University of Technology. ECONOMICS OF BIO-ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM GLUCOSE (ACRYLIC ACID E32A) It presents the economics of bio-based Acrylic Acid production from glucose syrup in the USA using a fermentation process similar to Cargill process. Different from the process examined in the report “Acrylic Acid E31A”, this process is carried in two steps: glucose is fermented to produce 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HPA), which is then dehydrated to produce Acrylic Acid. ECONOMICS OF BIO-ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM RAW SUGAR (ACRYLIC ACID E41F) The process examined in this report is the same process as the examined in the report “Acrylic Acid E31A” with two exceptions: (1) the plant is constructed in Brazil, and (2) the raw material used in the fermentation is raw sugar.

  3. 3. Reports Focused on Acrylic Acid Production Economics ECONOMICS OF BIO-ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM RAW SUGAR (ACRYLIC ACID E42F) This feasibility study analyses bio-based Acrylic Acid production from raw sugar. The process depicted is the same as the examined in the report “Acrylic Acid E32A”, with two exceptions (1) the plant is constructed in Brazil; and (2) the raw material used in the fermentation is raw sugar. ECONOMICS OF GLACIAL ACRYLIC ACID FROM CRUDE ACRYLIC ACID (ACRYLIC ACID E51A) This report presents the costs associated with the construction of an industrial plant, in the USA, for crude acrylic acid purification to produce Glacial Acrylic Acid. The purification process examined is based on crude acrylic acid crystallization. ECONOMICS OF GLACIAL ACRYLIC ACID FROM CRUDE ACRYLIC ACID (ACRYLIC ACID E52A) Different from the report “Acrylic Acid E51A”, this report examines a crude acrylic acid purification process via distillation. ECONOMICS OF ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM ACETYLENE (ACRYLIC ACID E61A) This study reviews the economics of a process for Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from acetylene. The economic analysis performed is based on a plant constructed in the USA. ECONOMICS OF ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM ETHYLENE OXIDE (ACRYLIC ACID E71A) This study presents an economic analysis of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from ethylene oxide in the USA using a carbonylation process similar to Novomer process. ECONOMICS OF ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM NATURAL GAS (ACRYLIC ACID E81A) This report presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from natural gas in the USA using a typical acetylene-based process. In the process examined, Acrylic Acid is produced from acetylene in a plant integrated upstream with a plant for acetylene production from natural gas. ECONOMICS OF ACRYLIC ACID PRODUCTION FROM PROPANE (ACRYLIC ACID E91A) This report presents the economics of Ester-Grade Acrylic Acid (EAA) production from propane in the USA.
