Azodicarbonamide Production Cost Analysis 2020

Azodicarbonamide or ADCA or ADA is a chemical compound, which is a yellow to orange-red, odourless, and crystalline powder. The chemical was first described by John Bryden in the year 1959.  It is sometimes termed as a 'yoga mat' chemical because of its widespread use in foamed plastics. 

The primary use of azodicarbonamide is in the manufacturing of foamed plastics as a blowing agent. The thermal decomposition of azodicarbonamide affects the evolution of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and ammonia gases. Azodicarbonamide is used in plastics, synthetic leather, and other industries and can be cleaned and altered. 

Pure azodicarbonamide generally reacts around 200 °C. However, any alteration affects the reaction temperature.  In the plastic, leather, and other industries, altered azodicarbonamide (with an average decomposition temperature of 170 °C) has additives that stimulate the reaction or react at a lower temperature. As a food additive, azodicarbonamide can be used as a flour bleaching agent and a dough conditioner. It also reacts with moist flour as an oxidizing agent. 

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Azodicarbonamide production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges.
