Methyl Methacrylate Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Methyl Methacrylate (a.k.a. MMA) is an organic compound, in the ester class. It is a colorless volatile liquid, with fruity odor, slightly soluble in water, but soluble with most organic solvents. MMA began being commercially produced in 1933, after the discovery of the acetone cyanohydrin route. Since then, many methods of production have been attempted and used, especially since methyl methacrylate is the base monomer for the production of PMMA, a versatile and greatly manufactured plastic.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Methyl Methacrylate production. 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 (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Methyl Methacrylate production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Methyl Methacrylate from Acetone - Cost Analysis | MMA E11A

This report presents the economics of a process similar to Evonik Aveneer for Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) production from acetone and hydrogen cyanide (HCN) in the USA. Initially, HCN produced in an on-site unit, acetone and methanol are used as raw materials for the production of MMA in six main steps, which are described in the report.

Methyl Methacrylate from Isobutylene - Cost Analysis | MMA E31A

This report presents the economics of an oxidation process similar to Sumitomo/ Nippon Shokubai process for Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) production from isobutylene in the USA. Initially, isobutylene is oxidized to methacrolein, which is further oxidized to methacrylic acid (MAA). Then, MAA is esterified with methanol to produce MMA.
