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.

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. 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.

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.

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.
