Chloromethane is an organic compound belonging to the group haloalkanes. The largest application of chloromethane is as a chemical intermediate in the production of silicone polymers. It is used in polystyrene foam production, as an extractant for oils, greases and resins, as a solvent in petroleum refining and manufacturing of butyl rubber. It is also used as a local anesthetic and as an herbicide.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Chloromethane production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
The report is a detailed study of cost analysis of chloromethane produced by reaction of gaseous methanol with bubbling hydrogen chloride gas over an alumina catalyst at 350 °C. Water is produced as a by-product.
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
