2-Propanol, also called isopropyl alcohol or isopropanol, is one of the most common members of the alcohol family of organic compounds where the alcohol carbon atom is attached to other two carbon atoms. It is colourless with a strong odour. Due to its flammable nature it must be stored properly and handled with care. It is widely used as a solvent. Acetone, another important solvent, can be easily formed through its oxidisation.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of 2-Propanol production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
In this process, propene (often of low quality) reacts with sulphuric acid to form a mixture of sulphate esters, which is followed by subsequent hydrolysis, thus, resulting in the formation of 2-Propanol.
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
