Procurement Resource Assessment of Caprolactam Production Process:
1. Caprolactam Production From Benzene :This report provides a detailed cost analysis of Caprolactam production through benzene. Initially, benzene gets hydrogenated, resulting in cyclohexane which is later oxidised to cyclohexanol or cyclohexanone. It is then turned into cyclohexanone which is reacted with ammonia and water to produce caprolactam.
2. Caprolactam Production From Cyclohexane: This report covers a detailed cost analysis of Caprolactam production using cyclohexane. Cyclohexanol or cyclohexanone is produced when cyclohexane is oxidised. Next, cyclohexanol is converted to cyclohexanone. Lastly, cyclohexanone is made to react with ammonia and water to produce caprolactam.
3. Caprolactam Production From Phenol: This report presents the economics of Caprolactam production from phenol. In order to produce cyclohexanone, phenol gets hydrogenated, after which it is turned into cyclohexane oxime by hydroxylamine. In the presence of sulfuric acid, this compound undergoes Beckmann rearrangement and leads to the production of caprolactam.
Caprolactam (CPL) with the formula (CH2)5C(O)NH is an organic compound. It is a colourless solid, a lactam (a cyclic amide) of caproic acid. It has a transparent or milk-like white colour with a subtle but unpleasant smell. It has a melting point of 70 °C and is soluble in water. CPL is most oxygenated and chlorinated solvents, and some hydrocarbons. It is primarily used to make Nylon 6 filament, fibre, and plastics. It is also employed to make other chemicals and is also used in the synthesis of lysine.
Caprolactam (CPL) is witnessing high demand owing to the increasing demand for biobased Caprolactam in engineering plastics & films as well as the need for lightweight automotive vehicles, which are factors driving the market’s demand. In addition, the expanding electronics and automotive sector, paired with the growing demand for plastics in the construction, electrical & electronics, and automotive industries, is boosting the market’s expansion. Furthermore, its properties, including elasticity, high strength, resistance to chemicals and oil, abrasion resistance, and low moisture absorbency of nylon fibres and resins, will further the market’s demand considerably. Also, the ongoing R&D concentrated on recycling Caprolactam will advance the industry’s proliferation.
