Furfuryl Alcohol
Furfuryl Alcohol
2-Furanmethanol
Furfuryl Alcohol (a.k.a. 2-Furanmethanol) is organic compound containing a furan substituted with a hydroxymethyl group. It is the largest volume furfural derivative, produced by hydrogenation of furfural in the presence of a reduced copper catalyst. This process is possible in vapor-phase reaction or liquid-phase reaction, with the former being the most employed industrially. Furfuryl Alcohol appears as colorless or pale yellow liquid with mild odor, which forms an azeotrope with water at atmospheric pressure. It is soluble in most organic solvents, such as alcohols, ether, chloroform and benzene. Furfuryl Alcohol can be subjected to a series of chemical reactions, including alkylation, cycloaddition, esterification, etherification, hydrogenation, hydrogenolysis, oxidation, and halogenation.
The uses and applications of Furfuryl Alcohol may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Furfuryl Alcohol are technical grade (98 wt% minimum purity); and high-purity grade (99 wt% minimum purity).

Updated Reports Examining Furfuryl Alcohol Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Furfuryl Alcohol manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Furfuryl Alcohol process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Furfuryl Alcohol production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Furfuryl Alcohol Production

This report presents the economics of Furfuryl Alcohol (FFA) from furfural via a hydrogenation process. In this process, furfural is hydrogenated in the liquid phase, producing FFA. The economic analysis presented assumes a plant constructed in the United States.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
