Intratec Solutions LLC, the unrivalled provider of techno-economic assessments for chemical and allied industries, is proud to announce the publication of Propylene Production via Propane Dehydrogenation, Part 3.
In this report, the production of propylene through the dehydrogenation of propane is reviewed. The STAR process was originally developed by Phillips Petroleum, but now it is commercialized by Krupp-Uhde, which increased the process performance by the insertion of an oxydehydrogenation step which enhanced the process economics in terms of investment and operating costs. Included in the analysis is an overview of the technology and economics of a method similar to the Uhde STAR process®. Both the capital investment and the operating costs are presented for plants constructed on the US Gulf Coast and in China.
The economic analysis presented in this report is based on a plant that is fully integrated with a petrochemical complex and capable of producing 450 kta of polymer-grade propylene. The estimated CAPEX for such a plant on the US Gulf Coast is about USD 400 million.
