FDCA
2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid
FDCA
FDCA (a.k.a. 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid) is an oxidized furan derivative. This organic compound has already been detected in human urine and blood plasma. It is commonly obtained as a white powder. It has the potential to replace fossil-based purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in the production of polyesters and other polymers containing an aromatic ring. The most promising application segment for FDCA is for the production of polyethylene furanoate (PEF). This polymer exhibits physical properties and applications similar to polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and is produced by the use of FDCA, instead of PTA, in the PET-production process.

FDCA Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | FDCA E11A

This report presents the economics of 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid (FDCA) production from glucose syrup via a furan process similar to Avantium YXY technology. Initially, glucose is enzymatically isomerized into fructose, which is dehydrated in the presence of methanol, yielding methoxymethylfurfural (MMF). Finally, MMF is oxidized to FDCA. The economic analysis assumes a plant constructed in the USA.

Details: 270 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report FDCA E11A target a 270 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

FDCA Production from Raw Sugar - Cost Analysis | FDCA E21B

This report presents the costs associated with the construction of a plant producing FDCA from raw sugar (sucrose) in Germany. Initially, sucrose is hydrolyzed into glucose and fructose and the glucose obtained is enzymatically isomerized into fructose. It is then dehydrated in ionic liquid medium, yielding hydroxymethylfurfural, which is finally oxidized to FDCA. The process examined is based in a non-commercial route.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 90 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages   From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report FDCA E21B target a 90 kta (kilometric tons per annun) Germany-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

FDCA Production from HMF - Cost Analysis | FDCA E31A

This analysis presents a process, in which hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is oxidized to generate 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid (FDCA). FDCA is recovered from the reaction product in solid form. The economic analysis is based on a plant located in the United States.

Details: 270 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report FDCA E31A target a 270 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

FDCA Production from HMF - Cost Analysis | FDCA E32A

This report is similar to the report FDCA E31A, but analyzes a process in which the product of HMF oxidation is recovered in liquid form via high temperature distillation. The economic analysis is also based on a plant located in the United States.

Details: 270 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $999

The cost analyses presented in the report FDCA E32A target a 270 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.
