Ethylbenzene Production Cost Reports


The report provides a detailed analysis essential for establishing an ethylbenzene manufacturing plant. It encompasses all critical aspects necessary for ethylbenzene production, including the cost of ethylbenzene production, ethylbenzene plant cost, ethylbenzene production costs, and the overall ethylbenzene manufacturing plant cost. Additionally, the study covers specific expenditures associated with setting up and operating an ethylbenzene production plant. These encompass manufacturing processes, raw material requirements, utility requirements, infrastructure needs, machinery and technology requirements, manpower requirements, packaging requirements, transportation requirements, and more.

Ethylbenzene Production Cost Report

Ethylbenzene is a colorless, flammable chemical compound mainly associated with polymer, resin, rubber, and chemical industries. It is primarily employed to make other chemicals, styrene and synthetic polymers. In the production of polystyrene, it is either used as a chemical intermediate or a petroleum additive. It is used in a wide range of products, including as a constituent of asphalt and naphtha, in fuels, inks, varnishes, synthetic rubber, paints, carpet glues, tobacco products, and insecticides. Moreover, it is also used in fuels, as a solvent, and to create other chemicals like acetophenone, propylene oxide, cellulose acetate, ethyl anthraquinone, diethyl-benzene, ethylbenzene sulfonic acids, and alpha-methyl benzyl alcohol which furthers its demand. It is a vital element of automotive and aviation fuels.

The market of ethylbenzene is strongly driven by its demand in the polymer, resin, rubber, and chemical industries. Its usage in the production of synthetic polymer varieties, including polystyrene, drives its demand in the polymer industry. Moreover, its utilization in the preparation of its derivatives, including diethyl-benzene, ethylbenzene sulfonic acid, etc., boosts its demand in the chemical industry.

The involvement of ethylbenzene in the preparation of resins, primers, and coatings increases its demand while strengthening its market growth. There are various factors that influence industrial ethylbenzene procurement across various regions. Factors including the rise in its demand for the production of synthetic polymers, resins, and coatings, along with the changes observed in its market prices and distribution, are highly essential to govern its procurement and influence its demand-supply chain in the global market.

Raw Material for Ethylbenzene Production

According to the ethylbenzene manufacturing plant project report, the key raw material for ethylbenzene production includes benzene-ethylene.

Manufacturing Process of Ethylbenzene

The extensive ethylbenzene production cost report consists of the major industrial manufacturing process:

  • From Benzene and Ethylene: the production process of ethylbenzene is carried out by the reaction between benzene and ethylene.

Ethylbenzene (C8H10) is an aromatic hydrocarbon made up of a benzene ring attached to an ethyl group. It is found in petroleum and coal tar as a constituent and is also present in manufactured products like pesticides, inks, and paints. It is a clear, colourless liquid with an aromatic gasoline-like odour.  It has a molecular weight of 106.16 g/mol. The liquid is flammable. It is less dense than water and is insoluble in it hence floating in it. Its vapours are heavier than air. It has respective boiling, melting, and flash point of 136.2°C, 94.97°C, and 59 °F.

Increased exposure to airborne ethylbenzene can cause irritation in the eye and throat. It reacts with oxidising materials by accumulating static electricity. It is miscible with organic solvents and has a solubility in alcohol and ether. At room temperature, it evaporates and burns easily. Ethylbenzene, upon combustion, might produce irritants and toxic gases.
