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.

You can find below reports focused on Dimethyl Terephthalate production processes currently offered by Intratec. If none of the off-the-shelf reports listed below fits your needs, you can request a bespoke report tailored to your needs, for as low as USD 2,900!

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.

The cost analyses presented in the report DMT E11A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.
