Polyethylene Furanoate
Polyethylene Furanoate
PEF
Polyethylene Furanoate (a.k.a. PEF) is a polyester compound synthesized from the copolymerization of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) with monoethylene glycol (MEG). While both FDCA and MEG can be obtained from biomass, PEF is a 100% recyclable bio-based polymer. Having similar structure to the widely used polyethylene terephthalate (PET), PEF is considered a potential substitute for this best-selling polyester.
The uses and applications of Polyethylene Furanoate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyethylene Furanoate are fiber grade; film grade; and bottle-grade.

Updated Reports Examining Polyethylene Furanoate Manufacturing Costs

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

Polyethylene Furanoate Production from FDCA

This report presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from monoethylene glycol (MEG) and 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA). In the process under analysis, FDCA and MEG are polymerized to PEF in two polymerization steps: melt-phase polymerization and solid-state polymerization. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the United States.

The cost analyses presented in the report PEF E11A target a 300 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.

Polyethylene Furanoate Production from Glucose

This report, in turn, presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from monoethylene glycol (MEG) and glucose syrup in the United States. In this process, a glucose is isomerized to fructose. Then, fructose is converted to methoxy methyl furan (MMF) intermediate, which is oxidized to FDCA. This process is similar to Avantium YXY. FDCA generated and MEG are then polymerized to PEF in melt-phase and solid-state polymerization.

The cost analyses presented in the report PEF E21A target a 300 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.

Polyethylene Furanoate Production from Raw Sugar

This report presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from raw sugar and monoethylene glycol (MEG) similar to Avantium YXY in Germany. Initially, raw sugar is inverted to fructose and glucose, which is isomerized to fructose. Then, fructose is converted to methoxy methyl furan (MMF), which is oxidized to FDCA. FDCA generated and MEG are then polymerized to PEF in melt-phase and solid-state polymerization.

Details: 300 kta Germany-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,499 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PEF E31B target a 300 kta (kilometric tons per annum) Germany-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.
