Hydrogen cyanide (also known as prussic acid) , is a colorless, toxic and flammable liquid. Mainly used in industries, HCN is a highly valuable precursor to many chemical compounds ranging from polymers to pharmaceuticals. It is also the precursor to sodium cyanide and potassium cyanide, which are used mainly in gold and silver mining and for the electroplating of those metals.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Hydrogen Cyanide 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).
The report is the detailed cost analysis of hydrogen cyanide production using Degussa process (or BMA process) in which no oxygen is added and the energy is transferred indirectly through the reactor wall while methane and ammonia are reacted.
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
