Vinyl Acetate Production Cost Analysis 2020

Vinyl acetate is an organic compound. This colourless chemical compound or liquid is the precursor to polyvinyl acetate, which is a crucial commercial polymer. It is a crucial component of furniture glue.

Vinyl acetate was once prepared by hydroesterification. This process involves the gas-phase addition of acetic acid to acetylene in the presence of metal catalysts. Its density is about 7.8 lb/gal. It is slightly soluble in water. 

Vinyl acetate is a commercial chemical compound that is manufactured in large amounts in the United States. It has a sweet, fruity smell. It is extremely flammable and can be ignited by heat, sparks, or flames. It is also used to make other commercial chemicals. This chemical compound is also used to make paints, textiles, and paper. It is also used as a coating in plastic films to pack food and to act as a modifier of food starch.

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


Vinyl Acetate Production from Acetic Acid and Ethylene

Vinyl Acetate Production from Acetic Acid and Acetylene
  • Vinyl Acetate Production from Acetic Acid and Acetylene

    This feasibility study examines the cost of vinyl acetate production using acetic acid and acetylene. In this process, the reaction of acetylene with acetic anhydride in a catalysed medium and high temperature results in the formation of dietilene diacetate.
