Dinitrotoluene
DNT
Dinitrotoluene (a.k.a. DNT) refers to a group of isomers produced by dinitration of toluene. The 2,4- and 2,6 isomers are obtained in greater quantities from this reaction, with concentrations of 75 wt% and 19 wt%, respectively. The dinitrotoluenes are carcinogenic and a moderate fire and explosion hazard when exposed to heat or flame. 2,4-Dinitrotoluene is an intermediate used in the manufacture of toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and dyestuffs. Dinitrotoluene is also used as the precursor of trinitrotoluene (TNT), a common explosive.
The uses and applications of Dinitrotoluene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Dinitrotoluene are technical grade.

Updated Reports Examining Dinitrotoluene Manufacturing Costs

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

Dinitrotoluene Production

This feasibility study provides an economic analysis of Dinitrotoluene (DNT) production from toluene and nitric acid in the United States via a two-step nitration process. Initially, nitric and sulfuric acids are reacted with toluene to form mononitrotoluene, which is further nitrated to produce DNT.

The cost analyses presented in the report TDA E11A target a 140 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.

Toluene Diisocyanate Production from DNT, CO and Methanol

This report presents the economics of Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI) production from dinitrotoluene (DNT) in the United States. The process examined is a typical reductive carbonylation. DNT initially is reacted with carbon monoxide and methanol to form toluene dimethylcarbamate, which is then thermally decomposed to produce TDI.

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.
