Alum Production Cost Analysis 2020

An alum is a chemical compound that is known as a hydrated double sulphate salt of aluminium. The name alum is also utilised, more generally, for salts and structure, except that aluminium is replaced by another trivalent metal ion like chromium(III), and another chalcogen like selenium also replaces sulphur. The most widely used of these analogues is chrome alum. In most industries, the name alum, also papermaker’s alum, is used to refer to aluminium sulphate, which is widely used for most of the commercial flocculation. In medicine, alum may imply the use of aluminum hydroxide gel, a vaccine adjuvant.

Aluminium-based alums have several common chemical properties. They are miscible in water and have a sweetish taste. Aluminium-based alums have been in use since antiquity and are still crucial in many commercial methods. The most commonly used alum is potassium alum. Applications of this chemical solvent include its use as a flocculant to clear the turbid liquids, and also as a mordant in dyeing, and in tanning. Currently, it is commonly utilised in the treatment of water, in medicine, for cosmetics (in deodorant), in food preparation (in baking powder and pickling), and to fire-proof paper and cloth.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Alum 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).
