Carrageenan
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.

Carrageenan Production via Extraction - Cost Analysis | Carrageenan E11A

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. This analysis considers a United States-based facility.

Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose Production - Cost Analysis | CMC E11A

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.

The cost analyses presented in the report CMC E11A target a 10 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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 - Cost Analysis | HPMC E11A

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 on the US Gulf Coast.
