Dicyclopentadiene, also known as DCPD is a colourless crystalline solid with an acrid odour, which is liquid at room temperature. It is widely used in the production of resins, specifically, unsaturated polyester resins. DCPD resin has low viscosity and high resistance to heat and corrosive chemicals in comparison to thermoplastic resins and thus, is widely used in injection moulding to manufacture large parts. It is coproduced with ethylene in the steam cracking of naphtha and gas oils.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Dicyclopentadiene 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 dicyclopentadiene production from a liquid feed containing cyclopentadiene and a C6 to C8 fraction through the distillation process using a cyclopentadiene recovery column.
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.
