Phthalic Anhydride
Phthalic Anhydride
PHTAN
Phthalic Anhydride (a.k.a. PHTAN) is the anhydride of phthalic acid. It was the first anhydride to be used commercially. It appears as a colorless or white solid in the form of needles or platelets and it has a characteristic odor, being toxic if inhaled. When mixed with water, if forms a corrosive solution. It is mainly used to produce plasticizers.
The uses and applications of Phthalic Anhydride may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Phthalic Anhydride are technical grade (5 to 8% moisture) and pure (99.8% minimum purity).

Updated Reports Examining Phthalic Anhydride Manufacturing Costs

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

Phthalic Anhydride Production from o-Xylene (Conventional Process)

This report presents the economics of Phthalic Anhydride production from o-xylene based on a conventional vapor phase oxidation. The economic analysis presented assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PHTAN 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.

Phthalic Anhydride Production from o-Xylene (Low Air Ratio Process)

This report presents the economics of Phthalic Anhydride production from o-xylene based on a conventional vapor phase oxidation. This report is based on a Low Air Ratio (LAR) process, in which the amount of air supplied to oxidation reaction is reduced to air/o-xylene weight ratio of 9.5:1. The economic analysis presented assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PHTAN E12A target a 100 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.

Phthalic Anhydride Production from Naphthalene

This feasibility study examines the economics of a process producing Phthalic Anhydride from naphthalene. In the process examined naphthalene is oxidized by air in a fluidized bed reactor. The economic analysis performed is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PHTAN E21A target a 100 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.
