Intratec Solutions LLC, the unrivalled provider of techno-economic assessments for chemical and allied industries, is proud to announce the publication of Sodium Hypochlorite Chemical Production.
This report analyzes industrial bleach production through the chlorination of caustic soda in packed columns, a widely used process similar to the employed by Solvay Chemicals. Key technical information, such as process description, flow diagrams, heat and material balances are also provided. Both the capital investment and the operating costs for plants erected on the US Gulf Coast and in Brazil are presented.
The economic analysis presented in this report is based on a plant integrated upstream with a chlor-alkali plant and capable of producing 250 kta of bleach. The estimated CAPEX for such a plant on the U.S. Gulf Coast is USD 33 million. Such location presented not only a lower CAPEX when compared to Brazil, but also exhibited lower operational expenses, revealing itself as the most competitive area.
