Citric Acid
Citric Acid
Citric Acid is a naturally occurring tricarboxylic acid commonly found in plants and animals. In its pure form, it is a colorless compound readily soluble in water. Citric acid can be obtained from natural sources (e.g. lemon, lime and orange) and synthetically produced either via chemical reaction or microbial fermentation. Large-volume industrial production of Citric Acid, however, is based almost exclusively on microbial fermentation of carbohydrate substrate, in which a strain of Aspergillus niger is employed to convert sugar to citric acid.

Citric Acid Production

This report presents the economics of Citric Acid production from corn via a fermentation process. Initially, corn starch is hydrolyzed to fermentable sugars, which are bioconverted to Citric Acid via fermentation. The economic analysis is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Caffeine Production

This report presents the economics of a typical Caffeine production process from tea leaves in the United States via an extraction process.

Details: 1.20 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages From $1,999

The cost analyses presented in the report Caffeine E11A target a 1.20 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.

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.

Details: 2.50 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages From $1,999

The cost analyses presented in the report Carrageenan E11A target a 2.50 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.

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 2019   |   107 pages From $1,499

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.
