Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Citric Acid 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 an economic study of the production of acetic acid by oxidation of acetaldehyde using metal catalyst, such as the naphthenate salts of manganese, cobalt, and chromium and air as an oxygen source.
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.
