Carrageenan
Carrageenan is a family of polydisperse long chain galactants (polysaccharides). It is a white-yellowish powder, odorless, with mucilaginous taste, soluble in water. The compounds can be naturally found in the extract of some plants like red seaweeds and moss. Carrageenan has been used since 600 B.C. in China, however its commercial production only began in the 1930s. For its thickening and gelling properties, carrageenan main uses are in the food industry.
The uses and applications of Carrageenan may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Carrageenan are refined carrageenan (RC); semi-refined carrageenan (SRC); technical grade; and Food Chemical Codex (FCC) grade.

Carrageenan Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Carrageenan Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Carrageenan manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Carrageenan process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Carrageenan production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

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.

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.

Details: 10 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages From $1,499 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report CMC E11A target a 10 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose Production

This report presents a feasibility analysis of Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) production starting from cellulose, methyl chloride and propylene oxide. In this process, cellulose is alkalized with caustic soda and etherified first with propylene oxide and then with methyl chloride (dissolved in dimethyl ether), before passing through an etherification reaction. The plant is assumed to be located in the United States.

Details: 12 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   109 pages From $1,999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report HPMC E11A target a 12 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Phenethyl Alcohol Production

This report presents the economics of a typical Phenethyl Alcohol production process from benzene, ethylene oxide, and aluminum chloride in the United States via a Friedel-Crafts reaction. In the process, benzene and ethylene oxide reacts in the presence of Aluminum trichloride, producing an addition product, which is hydrolyzed to the Phenethyl Alcohol.

Details: 1 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages From $1,999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Phenethyl Alcohol E11A target a 1 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

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.
