Ethylene Glycol Production Cost Analysis 2021

Ethylene glycol is known as an organic compound which is an odourless, colourless, sweet-tasting, and viscous liquid. Ethylene glycol is mainly used in antifreeze formulations as well as a raw material in the production of polyesters such as polyethylene terephthalate. It is extensively used as a medium for convective heat transfer. For example, in areas like automobiles and liquid-cooled computers. It is also widely used in chilled-water air-conditioning systems that place either the chiller or air handlers outside.

The chemical compound finds extensive application in geothermal heating/cooling systems as it is the transport fluid, which transfers the heat through the use of a geothermal heat pump. The ethylene glycol can gain energy from the source such as the lake, ocean, and water well, or it can dissipate heat to the sink, depending on whether the system is being used for heating or cooling.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Ethylene Glycol 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).
