Oxolane
Tetrahydrofuran (a.k.a. THF, Oxolane) is an organic compound, in the cyclic ether class. It is a colorless, odorless liquid, miscible with water and most organic solvents. It is an exceptionally versatile solvent, due to its high polarity. Most of its applications are in the chemical industry, especially in polymer production.
The uses and applications of Tetrahydrofuran may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Tetrahydrofuran are HPLC grade (99.9 wt% minimum purity, inhibitor-free); and technical grade (90 wt% minimum purity).

Updated Reports Examining Tetrahydrofuran Manufacturing Costs

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

Tetrahydrofuran Production

It presents the economics of Tetrahydrofuran (THF) production from butanediol (BDO) in the United States, using a dehydration process similar to Davy Process Technology (DPT). The BDO is very readily cyclized to THF with elimination of water by acid catalysis.

The cost analyses presented in the report Butanediol E11A target a 75 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.

Butanediol Production from Maleic Anhydride

This report presents an economic analysis of 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) production from maleic anhydride in the United States using a process similar to the one proposed by JM Davy. Initially, maleic anhydride is reacted with methanol to produce dimethyl maleate (DMM). The DMM is then hydrogenated to BDO.

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.
