Intratec Discloses Costs of Polyethylene Furanoate Production From FDCA

New report details capital investment and operating costs of a PEF Plant located in the USA

Intratec Solutions LLC, the leading source for chemical markets data and production cost reports, is pleased to announce a new report examining the costs of production of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF).

The new report presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from monoethylene glycol (MEG) and 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA). In the process under analysis, FDCA and MEG are polymerized to PEF in two polymerization steps: melt-phase polymerization and solid-state polymerization. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the USA.
This detailed study presents plant construction cost, Polyethylene Furanoate production cost breakdown, and raw materials consumption figures. It may be extended with supplemental analyses, such as Production Unit Cost Breakdown per Pieces of Equipment and Process Flow Diagrams & Equipment List, among others.

The new study is now part of Intratec portfolio of more than 900 up-to-date, independent and cost-effective reports. Intratec studies can be purchased online at Intratec website, via credit cards.
