m-Xylene
Metaxylene
m-Xylene (a.k.a. Metaxylene) is an aromatic hydrocarbon and isomer of o-xylene and p-xylene, with methyl groups in the positions 1 and 3 of the benzene ring. A mixture of xylene isomers and ethylbenzene is produced by catalytic reforming of naphtha and toluene dispropornation. The m- isomer is recovered through crystallization or solvent extraction. m-Xylene is mainly used in the production of isophthalic acid, sophthalonitrile and xylidine. It is also employed as solvent in the paints and coatings industry, in the composition of insecticides and fungicides, and as aviation fuel.
The uses and applications of m-Xylene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of m-Xylene are technical grade (95%), and research grade (99 - 99.9 %)

Updated Reports Examining m-Xylene Manufacturing Costs

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

m-Xylene Production

This study presents an economic analysis for a process similar to UOP's Sorbex technology for m-Xylene recovery from mixed xylenes considering a plant located in the United States. In this process, m-Xylene is recovered from a mixture of C8 aromatics via an adsorptive separation.

BTX Production from Ethane

In this study, the process reviewed is a typical aromatization process producing a mixture of Benzene, Toluene and Xylenes (BTX) from ethane. In this analysis, ethane is first dehydrogenated to ethylene, which is oligomerized. The oligomers then cyclize to form naphthenes. They are finally dehydrogenated, yielding aromatics. The economic assessment assumes a plant located in the United States.

The cost analyses presented in the report BTX E21A target a 400 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

Purified Isophthalic Acid Production

This feasibility study provides the costs associated with the construction of a plant in the United States for the production of Isophthalic Acid (IPA) from m-xylene using a typical liquid-phase oxidation process. The process targeted in this report comprises m-xylene oxidation, crude Isophthalic Acid recovery and further purification via hydrogenation for obtaining Purified Isophthalic Acid.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report IPA E11A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

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.
