This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid (FDCA) production from raw sugar (sucrose). The process examined is a non-commercial route based on concepts presented on recently published patents and articles. In this process, sucrose is hydrolyzed into glucose and fructose and the glucose obtained is isomerized into fructose. The resulting fructose is dehydrated to hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in ionic liquid medium, and the HMF is then oxidized to FDCA.
This report, FDCA E21B, 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 . . .
