Carboxymethylcellulose. A Review of the CIS Production

     Pure carboxymethylcellulose is of little significance to final consumers. It is its sodium salt frequently referred to as CMC in scientific circles that is commercially important. Our review offers the reader a profound coverage of the CIS CMC production, including its idiosyncrasies, challenges and prospects.
     CMC is appreciated in the oil, textile, food and pharmaceutical industries; in detergent production and in other fields as a stabilising, thickening, film-forming and bonding agent. As an artificial substitute of natural water-soluble colloids, CMC is used in manifold industrial sectors thanks to its unique property to form viscous homogeneous solutions both in cold and hot water environment.
The aggregate capacities of all the CMC producers in the CIS make up nearly 65,000 tpy.
     There are three leading CMC producers in the CIS: FSE Kamenskij Plant, a Russian industrial giant; it is followed by Polycell CJSC (Russia) and Karbonam JSC (Uzbekistan). The situation observed in the CIS market will be examined producer by producer.
