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

​​Intratec Solutions LLC, the leading source for chemical markets 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 new report presents the economics of Vinyl Chloride production from ethylene in the USA. The process under analysis is a typical balanced process, which combines two ethylene dichloride (EDC) production routes (direct chlorination and oxychlorination) with the Vinyl Chloride production via EDC thermal cracking. This detailed study presents plant construction cost, Vinyl Chloride production cost breakdown, and raw materials consumption figures. It may be extended with supplemental analyses, such as Process Flow Diagrams & Equipment List and Utilities Consumption Breakdown, among others.

The new study is now part of Intratec portfolio of more than 900 up-to-date, independent and cost-effective reports.  Intratec studies can be purchased online at Intratec website, via credit cards.
