Methyl Methacrylate
Methyl Methacrylate
MMA
Methyl Methacrylate (a.k.a. MMA) is an organic compound, in the ester class. It is a colorless volatile liquid, with fruity odor, slightly soluble in water, but soluble with most organic solvents. MMA began being commercially produced in 1933, after the discovery of the acetone cyanohydrin route. Since then, many methods of production have been attempted and used, especially since methyl methacrylate is the base monomer for the production of PMMA, a versatile and greatly manufactured plastic.
The uses and applications of Methyl Methacrylate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Methyl Methacrylate are pure or mixed with a polimerization inhibitor. Although it can be marketed in its pure form, when the required degree of purity is very high (e.g., polymerization for electronic components), it is more common for Methyl Methacrylate to be mixed with inhibitors to prevent polymerization and slow reactions with oxygen, thereby extending the product's shelf life.

Updated Reports Examining Methyl Methacrylate Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Methyl Methacrylate manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Methyl Methacrylate process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Methyl Methacrylate production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q1 2024).

Methyl Methacrylate Production from Acetone, NH3 and Natural Gas

This report presents the economics of a process similar to Evonik Aveneer for Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) production from acetone and hydrogen cyanide (HCN) in the United States. Initially, HCN is produced from ammonia (NH3) and natural gas in an on-site unit. Then, acetone and methanol are used as raw materials for the production of MMA in six main steps, which are described in the report.

The cost analyses presented in the report MMA E11A target a 120 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.

Methyl Methacrylate Production from t-Butanol

This study reviews the economics of a process for Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) production from t-Butanol. Initially, t-butanol is oxidized to metacrolein and then to methacrylic acid. Finally, the methacrylic acid undergoes esterification with methanol to generate MMA. The economic analysis performed is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

The cost analyses presented in the report MMA E21A target a 120 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.

Methyl Methacrylate Production from Isobutylene

This report presents the economics of an oxidation process similar to Sumitomo/ Nippon Shokubai process for Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) production from isobutylene in the United States. Initially, isobutylene is oxidized to methacrolein, which is further oxidized to methacrylic acid (MAA). Then, MAA is esterified with methanol to produce MMA.

The cost analyses presented in the report MMA E31A target a 120 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.

Methyl Methacrylate Production from Methacrylic Acid and Methanol

This report presents the economics of Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) from Methacrylic Acid (MAA) and Methanol. In this process, MMA is produced through the esterification of MAA with methanol. The economic analysis assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 200 kta United States-based plant   |   Q1 2024   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report MMA E41A 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.

Methyl Methacrylate Production from Acetone and Hydrogen Cyanide

This report presents the economics of a process similar to Evonik Aveneer for Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) production from acetone and hydrogen cyanide (HCN) in the United States. Initially, HCN purchased from external suppliers, acetone and methanol are used as raw materials for the production of MMA in six main steps, which are described in the report.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q1 2024   |   106 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report MMA E62A target a 120 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.
