This report provides the cost structure of isopropyl alcohol production by hydrogenation of crude acetone. In this process- hydrogenation of acetone is carried out in the liquid phase over a fixed bed reactor, in the presence of catalysts such as Raney nickel. Minute quantities of by-products like diisopropyl ether, methyl isobutyl ketone, and 4-methyl-pentan-2-ol are obtained in this reaction. A sustainable way of carrying out this reaction is the ‘bionic leaf’ method involving splitting of water by sunlight, and with the help of biocatalyst bacteria to produce hydrogen.

Report presenting a percentage breakdown of the investment necessary to the erection of the process unit (also known as inside battery limits, ISBL), per functional unit included in the process. Each functional unit is a significant step in the process (i.e., distillation, reaction, evaporation).
This supplemental analysis provides capital and production costs related to the process examined in a selected country (e.g. the United States, China, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Japan and Brazil.)
It reproduces the whole economic analysis of the main report (Capital Cost, Operating Costs, Product Value and Process Economics Summary) for the selected country.
Know the production cost for another country with the same level of detail of the main report.
