    I am stuck in estimating cost of equipment. I need a current Index to estimate capital costs of an industrial unit, but I could only find an Index with a few months delay.

    I need to know how much would it cost nowadays...

    Could someone please help me in finding a current cost index?

    Thanks,
    John

    PS: I'm sorry If this is in the wrong place in the forum.

    This is a good place. You should give more information about what kind of plant. A small 5000 sq foot startup, or a square mile industraial complex? What industry?

    Thank you. You can consider a 500 kta PE plant. I just need to know an up-to-date Index for scaling capital cost of such unit.

    Well, I think the IC Index could help you.
    It's free and has current and forecast values. Take a look:

    Chemical plant cost indexes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Intratec Chemical Plant Construction Index
