Methionine Production Cost Analysis 2020

Methionine is an essential amino acids in humans (provided by food). Methionine works for growth as well as tissue repair. A sulphur-containing amino acid, methionine improves the tone and pliability of skin, hair, and strengthens nails. Methionine chelates heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, aiding their excretion. Moreover, it also acts as a lipotropic agent and prevents excess fat buildup in the liver. 

In addition to being a substrate for protein synthesis, it often acts as an intermediate in transmethylation reactions, serving as the major methyl group donor in vivo, including the methyl groups for DNA and RNA intermediates. Acute doses of methionine can lead to acute increases in plasma homocysteine, which can further be used as an index of the susceptibility to cardiovascular disease.

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