Neopentyl Glycol is a highly reactive colorless-to-white, crystalline solid organic compound. It has imparting properties like low color, good weathering and chemical resistance, and high thermal and hydrolytic stability. This glycol is produced on commercial scale by the reduction of hydroxypivaldehyde (3-hydroxy-2,2-dimethylpropanal), formed from the aldol addition of isobutyraldehyde (2-methylpropanal) and formaldehyde. The reduction of hydroxypivaldehyde can be made by a crossed Cannizzaro reaction (using a base) or by a catalytic hydrogenation.
The uses and applications of Neopentyl Glycol may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Neopentyl Glycol are commercial grade (99 wt% minimum purity), in the forms of platelets; aqueous solution; flakes; and molten.

Updated Reports Examining Neopentyl Glycol Manufacturing Costs

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

Neopentyl Glycol Production

This report presents the economics of Neopentyl Glycol production from isobutyraldehyde, formaldehyde and hydrogen, assuming a conventional industrial process, located in the United States. In this process, formaldehyde and isobutyraldehyde are reacted via aldol condensation to form hydroxypivaldehyde, which is then converted to Neopentyl Glycol via catalytic hydrogenation.

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.
