Butanal (butyraldehyde), a colourless liquid with an unpleasant smell, is an aldehyde analogue of butane. It is an important component used in the preparation of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), majorly used in the manufacturing of laminated safety glass, varnishes, enamels, etc. It oxidizes to form butyric acid when exposed to air for a long time.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Butanal 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 shows the economics of a liquid-phase phosgenation process for TDI production. Nitration of toluene using nitric acid to produce dinitrotoluene takes place before the catalytic hydrogenation is done to produce toluene diamine (TDA).
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.
