We take pride in presenting the 36th edition of the online DACE Price booklet. It was edited by DACE in cooperation with BV at Doetinchem, The Netherlands. BV took the responsibility for production, marketing and distribution, while DACE was responsible for the content. The cost information is collected by the Special Interest Group CEPI (Cost Engineering Process Industry). Just like in former editions, the authors have compiled this document with great care. The budget prices have been established based on the assessment of actual costs of recently finished projects. The useful value of this document might increase, if wishes of the users can be taken into account. If you have any remarks or suggestions on the headings, completeness, measure of detail or any other matter, please inform BV for questions regarding the content of this price booklet please approach the DACE Office (
