Toluene
Methylbenzene
Toluene (a.k.a. Methylbenzene) is an organic compound, in the aromatic hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless, clear liquid, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic compounds. It occurs naturally in crude oil but can also be produced during the catalytic reforming of naphtha and manufacturing of coke from coal. Toluene was first isolated in 1837, with industrial production beginning in the start of the twentieth century. The importance of toluene as a raw material grew tremendously during World War I, for its production of the explosive trinitrotoluene compound (TNT). Currently, Toluene is used as a versatile building block, widely employed as precursor in the production of many industrial chemicals.
The uses and applications of Toluene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Toluene are nitration grade (98.8% minimum purity) and toluene diisocyanate (TDI) grade (99.9% minimum purity).

Toluene Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Toluene Manufacturing Costs

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

Toluene Production from Reformate

This report presents the economics of Toluene production from reformate. The reformate is submitted to a typical sulfolane liquid-liquid extraction, giving a mixture of aromatics, which is further processed to yield pure Toluene. Benzene and mixed xylenes are produced as by-products. The economic analysis presented is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 350 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Toluene E11A target a 350 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.

Toluene Production from Pygas

This study presents the economics of Toluene production from pyrolysis gasoline (pygas) in the United States using a typical liquid-liquid extraction process.

Details: 400 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Toluene E21A target a 400 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.

Toluene Uses. The uses and applications of Toluene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Toluene are nitration grade (98.8% minimum purity) and toluene diisocyanate (TDI) grade (99.9% minimum purity).

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.
