Intratec Discloses Costs of FDCA Production From Glucose

New report details capital investment and operating costs of a 2,5-Furandicarboxylic 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 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid ​(FDCA).

The new report presents the economics of FDCA production from glucose syrup via a furan process similar to Avantium YXY technology. The process under analysis is comprised of the following steps: glucose isomerization; fructose conversion to methoxy methyl furan (MMF); MMF oxidation to FDCA. The economic analysis assumes a plant constructed in the USA.  This detailed study presents plant construction cost, FDCA 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.
