FDCA
2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid (FDCA) is an oxidized furan derivative. 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.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining FDCA production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).

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. The process under analysis is comprised of the following steps: glucose isomerization; fructose conversion to methoxy methyl furan (MMF); MMF oxidation to FDCA. The economic analysis assumes a plant constructed in the USA.

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. The process examined is a non-commercial route based concepts presented on recently published patents and articles. This process includes the following steps: sucrose is converted into fructose; fructose is dehydrated to hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in ionic liquid medium; and HMF is oxidized to FDCA.
