Analysis Basis: United States   |   2018 Q1   |   52 pages   |   Online Viewable Report Delivered in PDF Format

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis (based on 2017/18 economic data) of Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) production from isobutylene using an oxidation process. The process examined is similar to Sumitomo/Nippon Shokubai process. In this process, methacrylic acid (MAA) intermediate is initially produced by two-stage catalytic oxidation of isobutene. Then, MAA is esterified with methanol to produce MMA.

The economic analysis provided in the report targets a United States-based plant and discloses:

  • All costs involved in starting a new industrial plant (capital investment):
    • Cost of construction:
      • Main process units
      • Surrounding infrastructure
      • Contingency
    • Additional owner’s costs
    • Working capital
    • Plant commissioning and start-up
  • All costs surrounding the production of Methyl Methacrylate:
    • Raw materials acquisition & utilities generation (manufacturing variable costs)
    • Labor wages, maintenance, operating charges, overhead, taxes and insurance (manufacturing fixed costs)
    • Administration, research and product distribution (corporate overhead costs)
  • Relevant technical coefficients:
    • Raw materials consumption & products generation
    • Labor requirements
  • Process block flow diagram
  • Description of the industrial plant:
    • Main process units
    • Site infrastructure
