Intratec Discloses Costs of Terephthalic Acid Production From P-Xylene

New report details capital investment and operating costs of a Terephthalic Acid Plant

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 Terephthalic Acid.

The new report presents the economics of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) production using p-xylene as the process feedstock. The study approaches the construction of a plant in the USA employing a conventional catalytic oxidation process. In this process, Crude Terephthalic Acid (CTA) intermediate is dried and then sent to additional purification steps to obtain PTA as the final product.

This detailed study presents plant construction cost, Terephthalic Acid 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.
