The methyl acrylate industry is observing a steady growth owing to the high demand from various sectors, such as plastics, textiles, and coatings which use meta-xylene
Mitsubishi's MX-Nylon is a meta-xylene
diamine polyamide that, according to Foster officials, offers "excellent mechanical and barrier properties for molded components and devices, and medical packaging applications.
Furthermore, the aromatics plant will also produce mixed xylenes like toluene, orthoxylene and meta-xylene
from the integrated BTX units, as well as cumene, glycols, phenol, export LPG and light naphtha.
MXDA has been manufactured by ammoxidation of pure meta-xylene
into isophthalonitrile, followed by hydrogenation of the nitrile in the presence of ammonia using a nickel catalyst or other metallic catalyst under high temperature and pressures.
The complex uses the Cyclar process and produces 350,000yt/y of benzene, 300,000 t/y of paraxylene, 45,000 t/y of orthoxylene and about 35,000 t/y of meta-xylene
In this case, a file containing the spectra of ozone, benzene, toluene, 2-butanone (MEK), and ortho-, para-, and meta-xylene
was first created by metering known concentrations of each compound in a stream of air flowing through the instrument's absorption cell.
UOP technology boosting meta-xylene

One of the most significant adsorptive separation processes developed by Kulprathipanja is Honeywell's UOP MX Sorbex (TM) process for highly efficient and selective recovery of high-purity meta-xylene
(m-xylene), a feedstock used in the manufacture of polyester fibers and resins for food packaging, films and advanced composites.
The complex uses the Cyclar process and produces 350,000 t/y of benzene, 300,000 t/y of paraxylene, 45,000 t/y of orthoxylene and 35,000 t/y of meta-xylene
The specific End-use segments analyzed are Para-Xylene (PX), Ortho-Xylene (OX), Meta-Xylene
/ Solvents, and Gasoline.
