Oxygen Production Cost Analysis 2021

Oxygen is a chemical element having the symbol O with atomic number 8. It is known as a member of the chalcogen group in the periodic table. It is known for being a highly reactive non-metal. It is also an oxidizing agent that readily forms oxides with most elements as well as with other compounds. By mass, oxygen is the third-most widely available element in the universe, after hydrogen and helium. At a specific temperature as well as pressure, two atoms of the element bind to form dioxygen, a colourless and odourless diatomic gas with the formula O2.

Dioxygen or O2 is a common allotrope of elemental oxygen on Earth. It has a bond length of 121 pm and bond energy of 498 kJ/mol, that is lower than the energy of other double bonds or pairs of single relationships in the biosphere. It is responsible for the exothermic reaction of O2 with any organic molecule. Due to its energy content, O2 is used by complex forms of life, such as animals, in cellular respiration. 

Most of the mass of almost all the living organisms are made up of oxygen as a component of water, the principal constituent of lifeforms. Oxygen is continuously being replenished in Earth's atmosphere by photosynthesis, which uses the energy of sunlight to create oxygen from water and carbon dioxide.

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