Paraxylene Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Paraxylene (a.k.a. p-Xylene, p-Xylol, 1,4-Dimethylbenzene) is the most important commercial isomer among the xylenes group (benzene derivates). The most important application of paraxylene is in the production of terephthalic acid and dimethyl terephthalate, widely used in the manufacture of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for ultimate use in fibers, films and resins.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Paraxylene 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 (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Paraxylene production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Paraxylene Production from Mixed Xylenes - Cost Analysis | Paraxylene E12A

It presents the economics of a typical process for p-Xylene production from mixed xylenes in the USA. Differently from the report "Paraxylene E11A", o-xylene is also produced.

Paraxylene Production from Toluene - Cost Analysis | Paraxylene E22A

This report examines the costs related to a process for p-Xylene production from toluene in the USA. Differently from the report "Paraxylene E21A", p-Xylene is produced via a selective toluene disproportionation process. High-purity benzene is also obtained as by-product.
