DMF
DMF (a.k.a. Dimethylfuran) is a heterocyclic compound, and a renewable chemical with a great potential for application as a fuel and fuel additive. It has a high octane number, ideal boiling point, and an energy content similar to that of gasoline. Compared to ethanol, DMF has lower latent heat of vaporization, a lower oxygen content, and is less miscible with water, which favors the processes of purification and distillation. It is also used as a precursor for furan-based compounds presenting several usages as industrial solvents. Production of DMF is based on the hydrogenolysis of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), which is obtained via dehydration of C6 sugars, such as glucose and fructose, in the presence of acid catalysts.
The uses and applications of DMF may vary according to its specification. The main forms of DMF are industrial grade.

DMF Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining DMF Manufacturing Costs

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

Dimethylfuran Production

This report provides a techno-economic analysis of Dimethylfuran (DMF) production from glucose syrup in the United States. In this process, glucose is isomerized to fructose, which is dehydrated forming hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) intermediate. Then, HMF is converted to DMF.

Details: 30 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report DMF E11A target a 30 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.

The cost analyses presented in the report Biodiesel E11A target a 220 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.

Hydroxymethylfurfural Production

This report presents the economics of Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) production from glucose syrup. In the process examined, glucose is enzymatically isomerized into fructose. It is then dehydrated in the presence of n-butanol, yielding HMF. The economic analysis performed assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 65 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   111 pages From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report HMF E11A target a 65 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.

Invert Sugar Production

This report presents the economics of Invert Sugar Syrup production from raw sugar (sucrose) using a process similar to the European Sugar Holdings S.A.R.L. technology. In the process under analysis, raw sugar is diluted and sucrose is hydrolyzed into glucose and fructose (invert sugar). This inversion reaction occurs in an ion-exchange resin bed. The economic analysis presented is based on a plant constructed in Germany

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.
