CMC
Cellulose Gum
Carboxymethyl Cellulose (a.k.a. CMC, Cellulose Gum) is an organic compound, a water soluble polymer, structurally similar to cellulose, with some carboxymethyl groups bound to some hydroxyl groups. It is the most important cellulose derivative in terms of sales volume. It is usually industrially commercialized as a sodium salt.
The uses and applications of Carboxymethyl Cellulose may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Carboxymethyl Cellulose are technical grade (75% purity); crude grade; semi refined grade; refined (99.5% minimum purity) grade; low viscosity grade; high viscosity grade; United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade; and Food Chemical Codex (FCC) grade.

Updated Reports Examining Carboxymethyl Cellulose Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Carboxymethyl Cellulose manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Carboxymethyl Cellulose process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Carboxymethyl Cellulose production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q1 2024).

Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose Production

This report presents the economics of Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose production, starting from cotton linter, employing monochloroacetic acid and caustic soda. In this process, cellulose is alkalized with caustic soda and then mixed with isopropanol and monochloroacetic acid, before passing through an etherification reaction. The analysis approaches a plant in the United States using a process similar to the one developed by Hoechst.

Carrageenan Production

The report provides the economics of Carrageenan production starting from seaweed, using a batch extraction process in the presence of calcium hydroxide. In this process, seaweed is chopped and washed. Then, Carrageenan is batch extracted in the presence of calcium hydroxide into an aqueous solution. Carrageenan is then recovered from the solution, while the seaweed residue is removed by filtration. This analysis considers a United States-based facility.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
