The tight propylene market contributed to the rising of new and novel lower-cost chemical processes for on-purpose propylene production technologies. Methanol-to-propylene (MTP) technology is one of the promising processes that arises to fullfil this need. This report analyzes a MTP process similar to the ones developed by Lurgi MTP® and JGC/Mitsubishi DTP®. It is presented a detailed technical and economic evaluation of a unit located in the US Gulf Coast. Also, the evaluation is conducted for a plant constructed in Germany and China. While China presented the most attractive return of investment, the advent of shale gas in the USA, and the consequent low-price natural gas availability, make of the country a promising alternative for this technology.
