Affordable Hydrazine production from conventional Raschig process

Pochari Technologies uses Thorium reactors to produce Hydrazine for under $500/ton.

Ultra-cheap hydrazine production from Olin Raschig process using Thorium reactors

German designed dual fluid molten lead reactor 0.6-0.75 ₵/kwh levelized generation cost

Capex: $1,200,000/mw

Lifetime: 50 years

Planned capacity: 41 mw

Hydrazine production: 1.9 tons per hour

Potential revenue: $81,000,000

Chlore-Alkali membrane electrolyzer: Plant capex: $105,000/tpd $19/ton NaOH/CI ($480 million for 1,680,000 tpy capacity, 15 year before major refurbishment)

Sodium hydroxide: 5.93 ton/ton N2H4: 2500 kwh/ton: $17 Salt (sodium chloride bi-product recycled)

$213

Chlorine: 2.6 ton/ton N2H4: 2500 kwh/ton: $17

Total: $94

0.9 tons NH3 $100/ton: No cost as 240 kg of H2 are produced from electrolyzing sodium chloride

Total: $356/ton N2H4

N2H4 12.58% H2 by weight

Raschig plant cost very minimal: $49/ton N2H4: $12,000,000 for 7,000 tpy (35 year lifetime)

Total electricity consumed: 21,500 kwh/ton N2H4

Salt continuously recycled, sodium hydroxide and chlorine consumed, sodium chloride produced as bi-product of Raschig process then re electrolyzed into sodium hydroxide, closed-loop system!

Net H2 cost: $3.12/kg. PEMFC 2.6x more efficient than SI engine, cost per gallon gasoline equevalent is $1.20/gal!

Current market price for hydrazine in China: $5200/ton
