This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid (FDCA) production from glucose syrup via the furan pathway. The process examined is similar to the Avantium YXY process, which is being scaled up to become a commercial process. In this process, glucose is isomerized to fructose. Then, fructose is converted to methoxy methyl furan (MMF) intermediate, which is oxidized to FDCA. The process uses a 70 wt% glucose-water syrup as raw material and generates methyl acetate and methyl levulinate as by-products.
This report, FDCA E11A, is a best-in-class examination of FDCA production, providing an 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 . . .
