Sodium alginate is a polysaccharide, which is derived from the cell walls of brown algae/seaweed. It is a neutral salt in powdered form and is used as a thickener, emulsifier, and a stabilizer in food products like ice cream, cheese, yoghurt etc. It is also used in the production of paper and paints.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Sodium Alginate 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).
This report shows the cost structure of sodium alginate production from the calcium alginate method. Wet chopped brown algae are treated with dilute formalin and sodium carbonate solution to form sodium alginate solution.
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.
