Ethylene Production Cost Analysis 2020
Ethylene, also known as ethene or green ethylene, is an example of a hydrocarbon. It is a colourless gas that is also flammable and has a faint sweet and musky odour. Ethylene is a crucial natural plant hormone and is used widely in agriculture to force the ripening of fruits.
Ethylene is most commonly used in the chemical industry, and its worldwide production can exceed that of any other organic compound. Much of this production goes towards manufacturing polyethylene, i.e., a commonly used plastic with polymer chains of ethylene units in varying chain lengths. Polyethylene takes more than half of the world's ethylene supply. Polyethylene is the world's most commonly used plastic. It is mainly used to create films in packaging, carrier bags, or trash liners.
Ethylene is also oxidized to create ethylene oxide. It is a key raw material in the creation of surfactants or detergents by ethoxylation. Ethylene oxide is also hydrolysed in order to create ethylene glycol, that is abundantly used for the production of automotive antifreeze as well as higher molecular weight glycols, glycol ethers, or polyethylene terephthalate.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Ethylene 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).
