Vinylbenzene (also known as Styrene) belongs to vinyl group, is one of the most important unsaturated aromatic monomers, and used in the petrochemical industry to produce polystyrene. It is also used as feedstock for several polymers, including thermoplastics, elastomers, dispersions, and thermoset plastics.
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).
This report analyses the economics of Vinylbenzene production from methanol and toluene. In this process, toluene gets alkylated with methanol over a solid acid catalyst to produce vinylbenzene, with ethylbenzene as a by-product.
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.
