Sodium Methoxide - Manufacturing Plant, Detailed Project Report, Profile, Business Plan, Industry Trends, Market Research, Survey, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Feasibility Study, Investment Opportunities, Cost And Revenue, Plant Layout

Product Profile Sodium Methoxide is white amorphous and flow able powder. Sodium methoxide is referred to by many names including alcoholate, methoxide and sodium methylate. It is a versatile chemical reagent used for many decades in various industries to produce high-value end products like pharmaceuticals, food ingredients, pigments and crop protecting agents. In recent years, the production of biodiesel has become an exciting, new and fast growing application for Sodium methoxide. In the future, biodiesel production will have a significant share of the overall sodium methoxide demand worldwide. Applications Sodium Methoxide solid is mainly used in pharmaceutical industry such as the manufacture of vitamin A1, vitamin B1, sulfame thoxypyridazine, sulfadiazine, trimethoprim and so on. Sodium Methoxide powder also can be used as the edible catalyst and the analytical reagent. Sodium methoxide is a routine base in organic chemistry, applicable to the synthesis of numerous compounds, ranging from pharmaceuticals to agrichemicals. As a base, it is employed in dehydro halogenations and various condensations. It is also a nucleophile for the production of methyl ethers. It is also used as catalyst in the production of biofuel. Manufacturing Process: Continuous process for sodium methylate Sodium methoxide is manufactured by different processes to produce solution (25% or 30% concentration of sodium methoxide in methanol) and crystal (99 % and above purity in powder form or granules form). A process is disclosed for the continuous production of sodium methylate from sodium and an excess of methanol. The process involves charging a reaction vessel with a solution of sodium methylate in methanol at a temperature of from about 80° to 86° C.; providing an inert atmosphere in the reaction vessel; agitating the contents of the reaction vessel; adding molten sodium at a metered rate to the agitated reaction vessel; adding methanol to the agitated reaction vessel at a rate which maintains the temperature of the reaction mass in a range of 80° to 86° C.; reacting the sodium and methanol for a sufficient time to substantially complete the reaction of sodium; and withdrawing from the reaction vessel a solution of sodium methylate in methanol. Market Scenario Indian installed capacity of sodium methoxide in the form of solution 30% is approximately 26,000 metric tonnes per annum. Indian manufacturers produce sodium methoxide in the form of powder and solution. Indian demand for sodium methoxide (in terms of 30% solution) is around 22,000 metric tonnes per annum and AAGR in demand through 2015 will be 7% per annum. Global demand for Sodium Methoxide (100% basis) is around 135,000 metric tonnes per annum and AAGR in global demand through 2015 is estimated to be around 2% to 3% per annum.
