The main raw materials of the acrylic acid to MMA technology include acrylic acid or methyl acrylate, formaldehyde and H2. Methyl methacrylate (MMA) is synthesized through hydrogenation and aldol reaction. The development of this technology extends the downstream industry chain of acrylic acid. This process was independently developed by PJCHEM, which are preparing for the construction of demonstration plant with 10kta capacity.
- Environment-friendly and non-toxic process, compared with the traditional hydrocyanic acid process.
- More economical and easy to achieve;
- Common and cheaper raw material compared with the isobutylene method
- Long lifespan of catalyst, and high purity of product
