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.

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.
