Vinyl chloride is an organochloride. It is also known as vinyl chloride monomer or VCM or chloroethene. This colourless compound is a crucial commercial chemical that is chiefly used to manufacture the polymer, polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. Vinyl chloride is one of the top twenty largest petrochemicals in the global manufacturing of petrochemicals. It is a chemical intermediate, and not a final product. Vinyl chloride is stored as a liquid.
Vinyl chloride is a gas having a sweet odour. It can be formed in nature when soil organisms break down chlorinated solvents. Vinyl chloride is formed commercially by the breakdown of other chlorinated chemicals. Earlier, it was used as a refrigerant. It was also used as an aerosol spray propellant. Traces of vinyl chloride can be found in wall coverings, housewares, furniture and automobile upholstery, and automotive parts.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Vinyl Chloride 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).
This study reviews the costs associated with Vinyl Chloride production directly from ethane and chlorin. Ethane is introduced into an autothermic (self-sustaining) cracking zone together with controlled proportions of chlorine and oxygen.
This study reviews hydrochlorination process for Vinyl Chloride production from acetylene. The hydrochlorination process is needed to produce vinyl chloride using acetylene and anhydrous HCl, along with catalysts like mercuric chlorides.
This report shows the cost of vinyl chloride production from ethylene. It is a balanced process which combines direct chlorination and oxychlorination with the vinyl chloride production through EDC thermal cracking.
This report provides the cost structure of vinyl chloride production from ethylene dichloride. In this process, hydrogen element is eliminated from ethylene dichloride to produce vinyl chloride as an intermediate chemical.
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.
