Terephthalic Acid
Terephthalic Acid (also known as TPA) is an aromatic dicarboxylic acid. It is mainly used to produce saturated polyesters, primarily PET (polyethylene terephthalate) followed by PBT (polybutylene terephthalate). Terephthalic Acid is commercialized in two major forms: Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) and Medium Quality Terephthalic Acid (MTA). The latter is also known as QTA (Qualified Terephthalic Acid), and EPTA (Eastman Proprietary Terephthalic Acid).

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Terephthalic Acid production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2018/19).

Medium-Purity Terephthalic Acid Production - Cost Analysis | TPA E11A
This report presents the economics of Medium-Purity Terephthalic Acid (MTA) production. The analysis is based on a plant located in the USA starting from p-xylene raw material. The process examined is a typical catalytic oxidation process.

Terephthalic Acid Production from p-Xylene - Cost Analysis | TPA E12A
This study presents the economics of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) production using p-xylene as the process feedstock. The study approaches the construction of a plant in the USA employing a conventional catalytic oxidation process. In this process, Crude Terephthalic Acid (CTA) intermediate is dried and then sent to additional purification steps to obtain PTA as the final product.

Terephthalic Acid Production from p-Xylene - Cost Analysis | TPA E13A
This assessment also presents the economics of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) production from p-xylene. The economic analysis is also based in a plant located in the USA. However, differently from the report "TPA E12A", the process examined in this report is similar to BP X Technology. In this process, drying and storage of the CTA intermediate is not necessary. The CTA wet cake is directly subjected to a hydrogenation step and PTA is obtained as the final product.

Terephthalic Acid Production from p-Xylene - Cost Analysis | TPA E14A
This analysis also presents production cost of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) production from p-xylene. The process examined in this report is similar to that one developed by GTC Technology. Differently from the conventional technology, this process does not involve a hydrogenation step for Terephthalic Acid purification. The economic analysis assumes a plant located in the USA.
