Operational cost

As may be seen from the table above do no other process gives you as much formaldehyde per Euro or US dollar.

Dynea Silver has the lowest operational/manufacturing cost (methanol, KWh, catalyst, cooling water) and the highest steam export of the two processes. The Dynea Silver has a superior overall economy.

The methanol prices are volatile but on average 300 Euro/ton is historically a good figure to use for feasibility studies. Below you can see the operational/manufacturing cost as a function of the methanol price.
