Carbon Monoxide (2021 Program)

This techno-economic report provides a review of the technology, chemistry, economics, and market analysis for carbon monoxide. Commercial technologies for the production of syngas and carbon monoxide are discussed, as well as development trends. Cost of production estimates were developed for various reforming and gasification technologies (utilizing natural gas, coal, and MSW) and cryogenic separation of carbon monoxide plus PSA separation of hydrogen for plants located in the USGC, China, and Western Europe. An overview of the major chemical applications for carbon monoxide is provided, along with an analysis of the implied carbon monoxide capacity and demand forecast based on these chemicals.
