DMC Production Cost Analysis 2021

DMC or dimethyl carbonate, a colourless flammable liquid, is a carbonate ester. It is a carbonic acid where both the hydrogens have been replaced by methyl groups. It is widely used as a solvent to manufacture various coatings, adhesives, and cleaning agents. Its less toxic and biodegradable in nature making it a versatile and green reagent. It is also used as an intermediate to manufacture polycarbonate, polyurethane, and other agricultural chemicals.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified DMC 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).
