Vinylbenzene Production Cost Reports

Chemicals

Vinylbenzene, also known as styrene or ethenylbenzene, is an organic compound. This derivative of benzene is a colourless and oily liquid that evaporates easily. Moreover, it has a sweet smell, but high concentrations may give a less pleasant odour. Vinylbenzene is known as the precursor to polystyrene and several copolymers. It plays a crucial role in the chemical production of latex, synthetic rubber, and other polystyrene resins. 

A common way to manufacture vinylbenzene is through the dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene. Benzene and ethylene are first compressed and sent to a reactor to manufacture vinylbenzene along with Friedel–Crafts catalyst at approximately 95 °C. The product mixture is then also fed into a distillation column to be separated into vinylbenzene, benzene, and polyethylbenzenes. After the partial distillation, the vinylbenzene is fed out with a high purity of over 99% at 136 °C, which is its boiling point. Vinylbenzene is also co-produced for the industry in a method known as POSM or SM/PO (Shell) for styrene monomer/propylene oxide. In this method, vinylbenzene is treated with oxygen to form the ethylbenzene hydroperoxide.

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