Polyethylene Furanoate (a.k.a. PEF) (also known as PEF) is a polyester compound synthesized from the copolymerization of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) with monoethylene glycol (MEG). While both FDCA and MEG can be obtained from biomass, PEF is a 100% recyclable bio-based polymer. Having similar structure to the widely used polyethylene terephthalate (PET), PEF is considered a potential substitute for this best-selling polyester.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Polyethylene Furanoate 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 Polyethylene Furanoate production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Polyethylene Furanoate Production - Cost Analysis | PEF E11A

This report presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from monoethylene glycol (MEG) and 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA). In the process under analysis, FDCA and MEG are polymerized to PEF in two polymerization steps: melt-phase polymerization and solid-state polymerization. The economic analysis provided assumes a plant located in the USA.

Polyethylene Furanoate Production from Glucose - Cost Analysis | PEF E21A

This report, in turn, presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from monoethylene glycol (MEG) and glucose syrup in the USA. In this process, a glucose is isomerized to fructose. Then, fructose is converted to methoxy methyl furan (MMF) intermediate, which is oxidized to FDCA. This process is similar to Avantium YXY. FDCA generated and MEG are then polymerized to PEF in melt-phase and solid-state polymerization.

Polyethylene Furanoate Production from Raw Sugar - Cost Analysis | PEF E31B

This report presents the economics of Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF) production from raw sugar and monoethylene glycol (MEG) similar to Avantium YXY in Germany. Initially, raw sugar is inverted to fructose and glucose, which is isomerized to fructose. Then, fructose is converted to methoxy methyl furan (MMF), which is oxidized to FDCA. FDCA generated and MEG are then polymerized to PEF in melt-phase and solid-state polymerization.
