Polyoxymethylene Production Costs - Q1 2022
Polyoxymethylene Operating Costs & Plants Capital Investment
Polyoxymethylene (a.k.a. POM, Polyacetal Resin, Polyformaldehyde) is a thermoplastic polymer fiber. For its crystalline packing, consisting of organized stacking chains, POM has a high strength, stability, stiffness and hardness, as well as low friction. These characteristics combined with resistance to chemicals and excellent dimensional stability make the polymer often a substitute for metal and it is widely used in the manufacturing of high-performance engineering materials and electronics.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Polyoxymethylene production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q1 2022).
Polyoxymethylene from Formaldehyde and Acetic Anhydride
In this report, it is assessed the production of Polyoxymethylene (POM), also called Polyacetal Resin. The economic analysis concerns Polyoxymethylene production from acetic anhydride and formaldehyde in the United States, assuming a process similar to the one owned by Dupont. Formaldehyde is initially concentrated and then polymerized in an inert cyclohexane medium. To enhance thermal stability, hydroxyl end groups are reacted with acetic anhydride.
Details: 110 kta United States-based plant | Q1 2022 | 107 pages From $1,999 USD
The cost analyses presented in the report POM E11A target a 110 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.
Polyoxymethylene Production from Methanol and Acetic Anhydride
This report approaches the production of Polyoxymethylene (POM) from methanol and acetic anhydride in the United States. Initially, methanol undergoes partial oxidation yielding formaldehyde over a silver catalyst. Formaldehyde is then polymerized to POM in an inert cyclohexane medium. To enhance thermal stability, hydroxyl end groups are reacted with acetic anhydride.
Details: 85 kta United States-based plant | Q1 2022 | 107 pages From $1,199 USD
The cost analyses presented in the report POM E21A target a 85 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.
