Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate
Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate
MDI
Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (a.k.a. MDI) is an aromatic diisocyanate widely applied in the production of polyurethanes. It is produced by the reaction of aniline and formaldehyde, using hydrochloric acid as catalyst, yielding diamine precursors, which are then treated with phosgene, resulting in MDI. It appears as a light-yellow, fused solid, which is soluble in acetone, benzene, kerosene, and nitrobenzene.
The uses and applications of MDI may vary according to its specification. The main forms of MDI are pure MDI (98% monomeric), polymeric (50% polymeric), modified

Updated Reports Examining Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate Manufacturing Costs

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

MDI Production from Aniline (Carbonylation Process)

This report presents the economics of Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (MDI) production from aniline and formaldehyde using a typical oxidative carbonylation process located in the USA. In this process, aniline undergoes oxidative carbonylation to give ethyl phenylcarbamate (EPC). Then, the EPC reacts with formaldehyde to form diphenylene diurethane (MDU). Finally, MDU is thermally decomposed to MDI.

The cost analyses presented in the report MDI E11A target a 50 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.

MDI Production from Aniline (Phosgenation Process)

This study presents the costs associated with the construction of a plant producing MDI from aniline and formaldehyde in the USA. In this study aniline reacts with formaldehyde to form a mixture of diphenyl methane diamine and polymeric amines. Then, this mixture reacts with phosgene to produce MDI and polymeric MDI. The phosgene used is generated from chlorine in an on-site unit.

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.
