Acetylene Production Cost Analysis 2020

Acetylene, which is better known by its systematic name, ethyne, is a well-known chemical compound. It is a hydrocarbon, which is the simplest alkyne. This colourless gas is most utilised as a fuel, as well as a synthetic building block. It is unstable, and in its pure form, it is, therefore, handled as a solution. Pure acetylene is odourless, but industrial grades have a distinct odour typically because of their impurities. As an alkyne, acetylene is unsaturated since two of its carbon atoms are bonded together in a triple bond. The carbon-carbon triple bond places all four bits in the same straight line, with CCH bond angles of 180°. 

Acetylene was discovered in the year 1836 by Edmund Davy, who called it a new carburet of hydrogen. It was an accidental discovery while trying to isolate potassium metal. Since the 1950s, acetylene has primarily been prepared by the partial combustion of methane. About 20% of acetylene is supplied by the commercial gas industry for oxyacetylene gas welding as well as cutting due to the extremely high temperature of the burning flame. The combustion of acetylene with oxygen gives rise to a flame of a temperature of over 3,600 Kelvins or about 3,330 °C, thereby releasing about 11.8 kJ/g of energy.

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).
