چکیده

اسید لویولینیک به‌عنوان یکی از ترکیبات واسطۀ تبدیل زیست‌توده به مواد با ارزش افزودۀ بالا معرفی شده است. در این مطالعه، فرایندهای تبدیل گلوکز و فرکتوز به اسید لویولینیک در محیط آبی و در حضور اسید کلریدریک به‌عنوان کاتالیست بر مبنای داده‌های منتشرشده طراحی شده­اند. واحدهای تولیدی بر اساس آهنگ خوراک ورودی 300 تن در روز، 330 روز کاری در سال و عمر مفید 20 سال طراحی شده­اند. برآورد حداقل قیمت فروش اسید لویولینیک با فرض 10% نرخ بازگشت داخلی سرمایه بررسی شده است. طبق تجزیه و تحلیل اقتصادی، حداقل قیمت فروش اسید لویولینیک تولیدی از فرکتوز و گلوکز به‌ترتیب 457/1 و 628/1 دلار بر کیلوگرم برآورد شده است. آنالیز حساسیت انجام‌شده بر روی حداقل قیمت فروش محصول بیانگر این موضوع است که در این فرایندها، قیمت خوراک و بازده تولید اسید لویولینیک دو متغیر مهم در تعیین حداقل قیمت فروش محصول هستند.

چکیده [English]

Levulinic acid (LA) has been reported as an important building block in the road map of converting biomass to value added compounds. Since LA is a versatile molecule, techno-economic analysis of its production from C-6 monosaccharides has been investigated. In this study, the process of glucose and fructose conversion to LA was designed in an aqueous solution in presence of HCl as the homogeneous acid catalyst based on published data. In order to perform the economic analysis, parameters were considered as feed mass flow rate 300 tons/day, working days per year 330, plant lifetime of 20 years, and 10% internal interest rate. Based on economic evaluations, the minimum selling price (MSP) of LA produced from fructose and glucose were 1.457 and 1.628 $/Kg, respectively. Sensitivity analysis was conducted to investigate different parameters impacts on MSP. Results indicate that feed price and product yield are major affecting parameters.
