MTBE Production Cost Reports
MTBE or Methyl tert-butyl ether is a combustible liquid that has been employed as an additive for unleaded gasoline since the late nineties. It is produced by the chemical reaction of methanol and isobutylene. It is a colourless liquid that has a distinct anaesthetic-like odour. Its vapours are heavier than air and narcotics. It has a flash point of 18 °F and a boiling point of 131 °F. It is a man-made chemical that increases the level of the oxygen content of gasoline, enabling cleaner burning in vehicles.
MTBE raises the levels of octane and oxygen in gasoline, reducing pollution emissions. It is used for dissolving gallstones. Due to the rising concerns regarding groundwater contamination and the quality of water, MTBE is banned in several places. In small quantities, it is used as a laboratory solvent and in a few medical applications.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of MTBE 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 a detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for Another Plant Location, and Dynamic Cost Model).
