This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Acetaldehyde production from acetic acid. The process examined is a hydrogenation process similar to the one proposed by Eastman. In this process, acetic acid is hydrogenated in a fixed-bed reactor, in the presence of an iron oxide/palladium catalyst. The reaction product is passed through an absorber for the separation of hydrogenation products and subsequently distilled for the separation of high-purity Acetaldehyde from reaction by-products. Ethyl acetate is generated as by-product.
