Acrylamide

This report provides analysis of the technology and economics of acrylamide production, via both conventional metal catalyzed methods and the modern biotransformation route, including cost of production models.  Recent key developments in biocatalyst technology and process design for the biotransformation method are discussed, as well as technological progress on the potential for acrylamide production from renewable sources via 3-hydroxypropionic acid.  A thorough market review, including global capacity listings and regional supply/demand figures, is included alongside discussion of key end-use markets and key product  growth drivers.
