Acetylene (or ethyne) is a hydrocarbon and the simplest alkyne. Around 20% of ethylene is used for welding. Other applications are in creating portable lamps, plastic and acrylic acid derivatives.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Acetylene 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).
The report is the detailed cost analysis of acetylene production by reaction of calcium oxide with coal in an electric furnace to give calcium carbide which is further hydrolyzed to produce acetylene and calcium hydroxide as by-product.
The report revolves around the economics of production of Acetylene from natural gas via a high-power electric arc furnace which uses direct current to crack natural gas into acetylene which is recovered from the reactor.
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.
