Dimethyl Terephthalate
Dimethyl Terephthalate
DMT
Dimethyl Terephthalate (a.k.a. DMT) is an organic compound, in the aromatic ester class, specifically classified as a diester. It is a white salt, with faint ester odor, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic solvents. It began to be industrially produced in the end of the 1960s, due to the difficulty of purifying terephthalic acid to produce fibers.
The uses and applications of Dimethyl Terephthalate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Dimethyl Terephthalate are technical grade, reagent grade (98%), and pure or synthesis grade (99% minimum purity).

Updated Reports Examining Dimethyl Terephthalate Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Dimethyl Terephthalate manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Dimethyl Terephthalate process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Dimethyl Terephthalate production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Dimethyl Terephthalate from p-Xylene and Methanol

This report examines the costs related to Dimethyl Terephthalate (DMT) production from p-xylene and methanol in the United States, via typical oxidation and esterification processes. In this process, operations theoretically take place in alternate oxidation and esterification (with methanol) phases. P-xylene is oxidized to p-toluic acid, which is converted to p-methyl toluate, then to methyl terephthalate and ,finally, to DMT.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report DMT E11A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Dimethyl Terephthalate from Toluene and Methanol

It presents the economics of Dimethyl Terephthalate (DMT) production from toluene and methanol in a plant located in the United States. Toluene is converted to p-xylene via a catalytic disproportionation process similar to ExxonMobil PxMax. The p-xylene is oxidized to p-toluic acid, which is esterified with methanol to generate DMT.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
