Polyethylene Terephthalate Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Polyethylene Terephthalate (a.k.a. PET) is a thermoplastic polyester with an enormous market volume in bottle resin. The combination of properties like hardness and rigidity, dimensional stability, chemical resistance and lightweight, makes PET a flexible material widely used in several applications, such as fibers, sheets, films, and beverage containers. It is also worth noting that PET, being a 100% recyclable material so broadly used, is the most recycled plastic worldwide.

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

Polyethylene Terephthalate Production Process - Cost Analysis | PET E11A

This report presents the economics of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) production from ethylene glycol and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in the USA, via a typical melt-phase process followed by a solid-state polymerization. Initially, oligomers are produced by the esterification of PTA with ethylene glycol. The oligomer then undergoes a melt-polymerization and a solid-state polymerization, yielding PET.

Polyethylene Terephthalate Production Process - Cost Analysis | PET E12A

It presents the economics of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) production from ethylene glycol and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in the USA. Differently from the report "PET E11A", the process examined in this report is a melt-phase process similar to Invista NG3.
