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.

Polyethylene Furanoate Production | PEF E11A

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 USA.

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

Details: 300 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   107 pages   From $1,199

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

Polyethylene Furanoate Production from Glucose | PEF E21A

This report, in turn, presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from monoethylene glycol (MEG) and glucose syrup in the USA. 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.

Details: 300 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   108 pages   From $1,499

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

Polyethylene Furanoate Production from Raw Sugar | PEF E31B

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.
