CLOUD DEDICATED COST DATABASE FOR COST ESTIMATING TEAMS
CAF-CAPEX DATABASE is a structured and comprehensive knowledge base designed to Cost Estimating professionals, the estimators can choose from parametric equipment models to detailed unit-rate data for all typical project disciplines, which include other parameters like Installation Mhrs and weights.
With the central database architecture of CAF-CORPORATION, client knowledge remains secure and available when they need it, and options for customized databases are available as per client request.
The CAF-CAPEX DATABASE information has been previously benchmarked with other third parties Databases, for example, some well-known datasets such as Compass International, Richardson and Page & Nations. In that benchmarking process, CAF-CORPORATION has applied the International statistic standards to obtain trusted data based on regression analysis methodology which include the feature to be real time updated using an owned Cost Index Database (CAF-COST INDEX DATABASE).
Green hydrogen chain production, the overall process essentially consists of three different technologies including:
- H2 production from water electrolysis using renewable electricity.
- CO2 extraction from atmospheric air capture or unavoidable Industrial emissions.
- Methanol, E-fuels, chemicals ammonia production using a boiling water-cooled synthesis or converters.
By common definition, the green energy refers to these produced through a production process that emits zero or minimal amount of carbon dioxide (and other greenhouse substances) into the environment during production.
Technologies for green energy production, which have been proposed or are in the emerging stage at the moment, are technically and environmentally different from the modern day, fossil-based energy technologies that are cheaper to build and operate. There are two ways to reduce or eliminate CO2 emission from a production process; the first way is to use a production technology, which does not utilize an external carbonbearing source as a carbon donor, or one that would not generate CO2 as a by-product in the process; the second option is to use carbon-bearing fuel/raw materials and capture/remove CO2 emitting from the downstream side of process. There is a possibility of a hybrid case also. In this case, the process is based on CO2 that is extracted partly from the air (instead of from a carbon source like NG, coal, or biomaterial) and partly from the recycled CO2 generated in the steam production process. This steam is needed for process thermal needs. H2 is produced from water by an electrolysis process using renewable electricity. Overall, the process is CO2-negative and extracts a lot more CO2 from the air than it injects back into the atmosphere.

We’re ready to transform the way you Estimate your Project.
When we say all in one, we certainly strive that all the tools that a Cost Estimating Professional needs are integrated. The growth process of the Databases and Tools is done in accordance with the requirements of the users.
You can find the databases, tools and techniques to Estimate your Project, or we can tailor it to suit your needs.
These Databases were designed with the objective of providing information necessary to carry out cost estimates for Industrial Projects, based on generic cost curves for several types of equipment families, generated through benchmarking techniques and Multiple Regression Analysis.
The comparative curves simulate Component Cost as a function of a capacity variable or combination of variables. The cost curves, man hours of installation and other information contained in this application can be used to develop the total cost of capital (CAPEX) of a process plant or any construction infrastructure.
These databases are time & location adjustable online.
At your disposal cost index and location factor tools, you can adjust them using “Caf-Cost-Index” and “Caf-Capex Location Factor” online, do not waste time waiting for an updated edition, you will always have the information up to date.
