This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) production from p-xylene. The process examined is similar to BP X Technology. In this process, p-xylene is oxidized to Terephthalic Acid. The Terephthalic Acid from reaction is separated as a Crude Terephthalic Acid (CTA) intermediate. The CTA is subjected to hydrogenation and PTA is obtained as the final product. The drying and storage of the CTA intermediate is not necessary in this process.
This report, TPA E13A, is a best-in-class examination of Terephthalic Acid production, providing in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
