This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Dimethyl Terephthalate (DMT) from p-xylene and methanol. The process examined is a typical oxidation followed by a methyl-esterification process. In this process, p-xylene is first oxidized to p-toluic acid, which is then esterified with methanol to p-methyl toluate. This intermediate is converted to methyl terephthalate, and finally to DMT product.
This report, DMT E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Dimethyl Terephthalate production, providing in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
