Polyethylene Terephthalate
Polyethylene Terephthalate
PET
Polyethylene Terephthalate (a.k.a. PET) is a thermoplastic polyester with an enormous market volume in bottle resin. The combination of properties like hardness and rigidity, dimensional stability, chemical resistance and lightweight, makes PET a flexible material widely used in several applications. It is also worth noting that PET, being a 100% recyclable material so broadly used, is the most recycled plastic worldwide.
The uses and applications of Polyethylene Terephthalate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyethylene Terephthalate are textile fiber grade; and bottle grade.

Updated Reports Examining Polyethylene Terephthalate Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Polyethylene Terephthalate manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Polyethylene Terephthalate process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Polyethylene Terephthalate 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 Terephthalate from MEG and PTA (Polycondensation)

This report presents the economics of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) production from ethylene glycol and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in the United States, via a typical melt-phase process followed by a solid-state polymerization. Initially, oligomers are produced by the esterification of PTA with ethylene glycol. The oligomer then undergoes a melt-polymerization and a solid-state polymerization, yielding PET.

Details: 250 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PET E11A target a 250 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 Terephthalate from MEG and PTA (Diol Incorporation)

It presents the economics of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) production from ethylene glycol and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in the USA. The process examined in this report is a melt-phase process and solid-state polymerization similar to Invista NG3.

Details: 220 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report PET E12A target a 220 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.
