Methylenesuccinic Acid
Itaconic Acid (a.k.a. Methylenesuccinic Acid) is an unsaturated dicarboxylic acid that can be applied in the production of unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs), as well as in the manufacture of surfactants, insecticides, and lubricants. This valuable acid can be produced by several organisms, and is considered one potencial candidate as base chemical building block.
The uses and applications of Itaconic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Itaconic Acid are industrial grade; and as a lump, granular, powder, slurry and micron sized.

Updated Reports Examining Itaconic Acid Manufacturing Costs

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

Itaconic Acid Production

This report approaches an economic analysis of Itaconic Acid production from dimethyl succinate (DMS) and formaldehyde in the United States. In this process, Itaconic Acid is produced via a citraconate intermediate in a catalytic condensation reaction. Succinic acid is generated as a by-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.
