New report details capital investment and operating costs of a VCM Plant

Intratec Solutions LLC, leading provider of chemicals and utilities pricing data and production cost reports, is pleased to announce a new report examining the costs of production of Vinyl Chloride (Vinyl Chloride Monomer – VCM).

The report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of  of Vinyl Chloride production from acetylene and hydrochloric acid. The process examined is a typical acetylene hydrochlorination process, in which anhydrous hydrogen chloride is reacted in vapor phase with acetylene over a mercuric chloride catalyst producing Vinyl Chloride. The study may be extended with optional analyses, such as Economic Analysis for Different Capacities, Utilities Consumption Breakdown, and analyses providing capital & production costs in several countries.
