Intratec Solutions LLC, the unrivalled provider of techno-economic assessments for chemical and allied industries, is proud to announce the publication of Polypropylene Production Via Gas Phase Process, Part 2.
In this report, we review the production of polypropylene through the polymerization of propylene via a vertical stirred-bed gas phase process. Included in the analysis is an overview of the technology and economics of a process similar to the Lummus Novolen® technology. Both the capital investment and the operating costs for plants erected on the US Gulf Coast.
The economic analysis presented in this study is based on a 300 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 estimated CAPEX for a stand-alone plant on the US Gulf Coast is about USD 213 million, slightly higher than the CAPEX for an integrated plant – about USD 200 million.
