Dimethyl Carbonate
Dimethyl Carbonate
DMC
Dimethyl Carbonate (a.k.a. DMC) is an organic compound, one of the most important carbonates. It is also a flammable, colourless liquid with a characteristic ester-like odour. This compound is a versatile, non-toxic, biodegradable reagent, widely applied in transesterification reactions with glycols for polycarbonates production.
The uses and applications of Dimethyl Carbonate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Dimethyl Carbonate are industrial grade (99% maximum purity); technical grade (99.5% minimum purity); reagent grade (over 99% purity); battery grade (99.5% minimum purity)

Dimethyl Carbonate Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Dimethyl Carbonate Manufacturing Costs

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

Dimethyl Carbonate Production from Methanol

This report presents the economics of a non-phosgene process for Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) production from methanol in the United States. This process is a typical oxidative carbonylation process. Methanol, carbon monoxide and oxygen are reacted in the presence of copper chloride catalyst to yield DMC and water.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   109 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report DMC E11A target a 100 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.

Dimethyl Carbonate Production from Ethylene Carbonate

This report presents the economics of a Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC) production from ethylene carbonate and methanol in the United States. In this typical transesterification process, DMC is generated in a reactive distillation and purified via extractive distillation. Monoethylene glycol is generated as by-product.

Details: 150 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report DMC E21A target a 150 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.

Ethylene Glycol from Ethylene (Direct EO Hydrolysis)

This study presents the economics of Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) production from ethylene. The process described is similar to Shell MASTER. First, ethylene is oxidized with oxygen to produce ethylene oxide (EO), which is further hydrolyzed to MEG. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the United States. Diethylene glycol (DEG) and triethylene glycol (TEG) are also generated as by-products.

Details: 690 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   111 pages From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report MEG E11A target a 690 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.

Methanol Production from Natural Gas (Combined Reforming)

This study presents the economics of large-scale Methanol production from natural gas in the United States. In this process, natural gas is first converted into synthesis gas (syngas) by means of conventional steam reforming and secondary autothermal reforming. Then, the syngas is converted into Methanol.

Details: 1,700 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Methanol E12A target a 1,700 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.

Polycarbonate Production from BPA and Phosgene

This report presents the economics of Polycarbonate (PC) production from bisphenol A (BPA) and phosgene in the United States, via a typical interfacial process. In this process, BPA, dissolved in a caustic soda solution, is reacted with phosgene, in an organic solution, at the interface of the two phases. The carbonate oligomers produced are then polycondensed to Polycarbonate.

Details: 200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PC E11A target a 200 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.
