Hydrogen Cyanide Production Cost Report

Hydrogen Cyanide, also known as prussic acid, is an inorganic chemical with wide usage across many chemical processes like fumigation, electroplating, the case hardening of iron and steel, and the concentration of ores. It is used to prepare acrylonitrile and dyes, which are employed to produce acrylic fibers, synthetic rubber, and plastics. Furthermore, it can be used as a fumigant to kill pests like rodents in warehouses, greenhouses, grain storage bins, and holds of ships since it has high toxicity and can penetrate obscure spaces. In addition, it also finds use as a horticultural fumigant.

The market for hydrogen cyanide is majorly driven by its applications for fumigation, mining, electroplating, and chemical synthesis, which contributes to its market expansion and increases its demand in agriculture, pharmaceutical, mining, and chemical manufacturing industries. It is also extensively used for the production of synthetic fibers, plastics, dyes, insecticides, and rodenticides, which further amplifies its demand in rubber, plastic, paint and coatings, agriculture, and public health industries, respectively. Additionally, the availability and cost of production of hydrogen cyanide’s feedstock (methane, ammonia, etc.), hydrogen cyanide market prices, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, environmental regulations, safety standards, etc., are some of the elements that influence an industrial hydrogen cyanide procurement.

Raw Material for Hydrogen Cyanide Production

According to the Hydrogen Cyanide manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Hydrogen Cyanide production include Propane-Ammonia; Methane-Ammonia; Methane-Ammonia-Oxygen.

Manufacturing Process of Hydrogen Cyanide

The extensive Hydrogen Cyanide production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing processes:

  • Production from Hydrocarbons or Shawinigan Process: The process involves the reaction of hydrocarbons, e.g., propane with ammonia to give hydrogen cyanide.
  • Production by Degussa Process or BMA process: In this process methane and ammonia react in the absence of oxygen in the presence of platinum catalyst to give hydrogen cyanide and hydrogen gas as the final product.
  • Production by Andrussow Oxidation: This method is the most popular method of production of hydrogen cyanide. It involves the reaction of ammonia, methane, and air(oxygen) in the presence of a platinum catalyst at high temperature.

Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) is a highly toxic conjugate acid of cyanide which mainly functions as a chemical weapon agent. It is a one-carbon compound comprising a methine group triple bonded to a nitrogen atom. It plays the role of an Escherichia coli metabolite, a human metabolite, and a poison.

Hydrogen cyanide appears to be a clear colourless liquid (or pale-blue liquid or gas) that has a faint odour resembling bitter almonds. Its smell can lead to irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract, as well as toxic systemic effects. Its vapours are lighter than air. This is a dangerous transparent liquid, and its storage and transport are prohibited. Workers exposed to it can suffer fatal consequences.

It is a great solvent for many salts. However, it is not widely used as a solvent due to its toxicity. It is a stable compound in its pure form but readily polymerizes in the presence of basic substances like ammonia or sodium cyanide. It is soluble in water and ethanol. It's a highly volatile and extremely poisonous liquid. It has a boiling, melting and freezing point of 26° C, -13.4 °C and -14° C, respectively. It HCN has a molar mass of 27.0253 g/mol and a density of 687 kg/m³.
