Featured Report: Purified Terephthalic Acid from p-Xylene (Conventional Process)

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) production from p-xylene. The process examined is a conventional catalytic oxidation process. In this process, p-xylene is oxidized to Terephthalic Acid. The Terephthalic Acid from reaction passes through separation and drying steps and Crude Terephthalic Acid (CTA) is obtained as an intermediate. Subsequently, the CTA is subjected to purification via hydrogenation and PTA is obtained as the final product.

Featured Report: L-Lysine-HCl Production from Glucose

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Lysine production from glucose syrup. The process examined is a conventional fermentation process followed by ion-exchange adsorption and crystallization steps for product recovery. In this process, a 70 wt% glucose-water syrup is used as the carbon source in the fermentation the final product obtained is L-Lysine Monohydrochloride (or L-Lysine-HCl).

Featured Report: Polyacrylonitrile Production

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) Precursor production from acrylonitrile and methyl acrylate. The process examined is a typical industrial process. In this plant, acrylonitrile is polymerized with methyl acrylate comonomer via aqueous dispersion polymerization and the polymer formed is subsequently converted to fiber through wet spinning.
