Polybutylene Terephthalate
PBT
Polybutylene Terephthalate (a.k.a. PBT) is a crystalline thermoplastic polyester resin with qualities ideally suited to an injection molding resin. PBT has similar properties and composition to polyethylene terephthalate. It is obtained by polycondensation of terephthalic acid or 1,4-butanediol with dimethyl terephthalate. Examples of PBT products include housings for heated domestic appliances, gear wheels, fan wheels, capacitor covers, among others.

Polybutylene Terephthalate Production from DMT - Cost Analysis | PBT E11A

This report presents the economics of Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) production from dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) in the USA, via a typical transesterification/polycondensation process. In this process, DMT is transesterified with 1,4-butanediol followed by polycondensation, yielding PBT.

Dimethyl Terephthalate from p-Xylene and Methanol - Cost Analysis | DMT E11A

This report examines the costs related to Dimethyl Terephthalate (DMT) production from p-xylene and methanol in the USA, via typical oxidation and esterification processes. In this process, operations theoretically take place in alternate oxidation and esterification (with methanol) phases. P-xylene is oxidized to p-toluic acid, which is converted to p-methyl toluate, then to methyl terephthalate and ,finally, to DMT.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages From $1,199

The cost analyses presented in the report DMT E11A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Methanol Production from Natural Gas - Cost Analysis | Methanol E12A

This study presents the economics of large-scale Methanol production from natural gas in the United States. Differently from the process examined in the report “Methanol E11A”, natural gas is first converted into synthesis gas (syngas) by means of conventional steam reforming and secondary autothermal reforming.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 1,700 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Methanol E12A target a 1,700 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Paraxylene Production from Toluene - Cost Analysis | Paraxylene E21A

This study presents the economics of a toluene disproportionation process similar to PxMax developed by ExxonMobil for p-Xylene production in the USA.

Details: 450 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Paraxylene E21A target a 450 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.
