Methyl Chloride
Chloromethane
Chloromethane (a.k.a. Methyl Chloride) is an organic compound, in the haloalkane (halogenated hydrocarbons) class. It is a colorless gas, with sweet ethereal odor, soluble in water and most organic compounds. Along with other organic chlorine derivatives, such as dichloromethane and chloroform, Methyl Chloride plays an important role in both economic and industrial standpoints, with a variety of uses as chemical intermediates and solvents. Chloromethane was first produced in 1835, by reacting sodium chloride with methanol in the presence of sulfuric acid, in a process that is not used industrially anymore. It was replaced by the hydrochlorination of methanol at the beginning of the twentieth century, which is still used today.
Methyl Chloride is commonly traded in a 99.9 wt% minimum purity grade.

Updated Reports Examining Chloromethane Manufacturing Costs

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

Methyl Chloride Production

This report presents the economics of Methyl Chloride production from methanol and hydrogen chloride. The economic analysis encompasses a plant located in the United States using a conventional industrial process where chloridric acid is combined with methanol in a reaction occurring in vapor phase over a catalyst bed.

Hydrogen Chloride Production from Hydrogen and Chlorine

This study analysis the economics of Anhydrous Hydrogen Chloride (HCl) production from hydrogen and chlorine in the United States. The process examined is a typical synthesis of Hydrogen Chloride via the direct reaction of the elements.

Details: 25 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report HCl E11A target a 25 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.

Hydrochloric Acid from NaCl and Sulfuric Acid (Reactor Furnace)

This report presents the economics of Hydrochloric Acid production from sodium chloride and sulfuric acid in the USA through a typical Mannheim process in which the reaction occurs in a reactor furnace. Initially, sulfuric acid reacts with sodium chloride producing hydrogen chloride and sodium sulfate, a by-product. Subsequently, the gas is absorbed in water and Hydrochloric Acid is obtained as the final product.

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.
