Featured Report: Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene and EDC

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Vinyl Chloride production from ethylene and ethylene dichloride (EDC). The process examined combines: (1) EDC production from ethylene via oxychlorination, and (2) Vinyl Chloride production via thermal cracking of EDC. In this process, initially EDC is submitted to a thermal cracking, producing VCM and hydrogen chloride (HCl). This HCl is reacted with ethylene via an oxychlorination reaction to generate EDC, that is cracked to additional VCM. The HCl requirement is balanced by purchasing additional EDC from the market.

Featured Report: Nitrile Rubber Production

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Nitrile Rubber (solid NBR) production from acrylonitrile and butadiene. The process examined is a typical continuous cold emulsion process for producing NBR. In this process, an emulsion comprising water, acrylonitrile and butadiene monomers is polymerized into a latex, which is then coagulated to form the Nitrile Butadiene Rubber, containing 33 wt% of acrylonitrile.

Featured Report: 2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate Production

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of 2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate (2-EHA) production from acrylic acid and 2-ethylhexanol. The process examined is similar to the Synthomer process. In this process, acrylic acid and 2-ethylhexanol are directly converted to 2-ethylhexyl acrylate via an esterification reaction catalyzed by p-Toluene Sulfonic Acid.

Featured Report: Butyraldehyde from Propylene and Syngas (N/Iso Ratio of 30:1)

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of n-Butyraldehyde production from propylene and syngas. The process examined is similar to the LP OXO technology jointly licensed by JM Davy and Dow, employing Selector 30 catalyst. In this process, the production ratio of n- to iso-butyraldehyde in the oxo reaction is about 30. The n-Butyraldehyde is separated as the final product and the isobutyraldehyde is obtained as a by-product.
