In this report, the design of a propionic acid production plant is presented. The propionic acid that is produced will partly be used for the production of iron and copper supplements for 10 million people to ingest 100% of the RDA per day on a yearly basis, the surplus of propionic acid will be sold. To produce propionic acid, ethanol and carbon monoxide are used. In this report two main research questions will be answered: What are the specific mineral requirements of humans, how are they met and why, the second research question is what are the investment costs of a propionic acid production plant on a five tonne/h scale? as bases for the essential mineral production. The plant produces 5 t/h and has a run time of 8000 h/yr this results in a propionic acid production of 40 kta.
