Ethanolamine
Monoethanolamine (a.k.a. MEA, Ethanolamine, 2-Aminoethanol) is an organic compound, containing a primary alcohol and amine groups. It is a colorless, viscous liquid, with ammoniacal odor. Due to its high viscosity, MEA is commonly used as a thickener/emulsifier in a wide range of processes and industries. In recent times, due to increased attention in carbon dioxide capture and sequestration, monoethanolamine has been used frequently as the solvent choice for the scrubbing process for the amine’s weak base properties.
The uses and applications of Monoethanolamine may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Monoethanolamine are commercial/technical grade (99.5% minimum purity); National Formulary grade (NF, 99% minimum purity); low freezing grade (85% solution of MEA, 15% water); iron and chloride free grade (<1 ppm chloride, < 0.5% chloride).

Updated Reports Examining Monoethanolamine Manufacturing Costs

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

Ethanolamines Production

This report approaches the Ethanolamines production from ethylene oxide and ammonia. The process examined is a alkoxylation of ammonia with ethylene oxide similar to the one owned by Johnson Matthey Davy Technologies. In this process, Monoethanolamine (MEA), Diethanolamine (DEA) and Triethanolamine (TEA) are co-produced. The economic analysis performed assumes a plant located in the United States.

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.
