Hexene Production Cost Reports


Hexene is an alkene. The prefix hex refers to the six carbon atoms in the molecule, while the ene suffix means that there is an alkene present, which is two carbon atoms joined via a double bond. There are numerous isomers of hexene, depending on the position and geometry of the double bond in the chain.

One of the most widely used and commercially useful isomers is 1-hexene, i.e., an alpha-olefin. 1-Hexene is a colourless liquid and is typically produced by two general routes, i.e., full-range processes via the oligomerisation of ethylene or on-purpose technology. A minor route to produce 1-hexene that is utilised commercially on smaller scales is the dehydration of hexanol.

Hexene is utilised as a comonomer in the preparation of polyethylene, i.e., high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). It is also used to produce linear aldehyde heptanal via oxo synthesis, which can be further converted into alcohol heptanol. Hexene is used in the manufacturing of flavours, perfumes, resins, and dyes as well.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Hexene 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).
