Azepan-2-one, also known as caprolactam (CPL), is a crystalline cyclic amide of caproic acid. It is a white, hygroscopic, water-soluble solid. Its major application involves its use in the production of nylon-6 and synthetic fibres. It is also used in brush bristles, synthetic leather, plastics, plasticizers, etc.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Azepan-2-One 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).
This report presents a detailed cost analysis of azepan-2-one production from benzene. In this process, benzene is first hydrogenated to produce cyclohexane, which is further oxidised to form a mixture of cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone.
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.
