Methyl Ester Sulfonate
MES
Methyl Ester Sulfonate (a.k.a. MES) is a group of anionic surfactants also known as alpha-sulfo fatty acid esters. MES are derived from renewable resources, such as natural fats and oils. As a surface-active agent, MES can reduce interfacial tension between water and oil; when placed in an oil-water mixture, this chemical arranges itself in such a way that the hydrophilic part of its molecules remains towards water while the lipophilic parts towards oil.
The uses and applications of Methyl Ester Sulfonate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Methyl Ester Sulfonate are flakes; and needles.

Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Methyl Ester Sulfonate process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Methyl Ester Sulfonate 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 Ester Sulfonate Production

This study presents a feasibility analysis of Methyl Ester Sulfonate production from palm oil in the United States. This process is comprised of two steps: initially, methyl ester is formed from palm oil and methanol via transesterification. Then, the methyl ester is sulfonated to final product generation.

Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate Production from LAB and Oleum

This report presents the economics of Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate (LAS) production from linear alkylbenzene (LAB) and oleum (10-25% sulfur trioxide in sulfuric acid) in the United States, via a conventional sulfonation process. Sulfur trioxide is the sulfonating agent and the primary product is the para-alkylbenzene sulfonic acid, which is further neutralized.

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.
