Dinitrotoluene Production Cost Analysis 2020
2,4-Dinitrotoluene, better known as DNT or dinitrotoluene, is an organic compound. It is a pale yellow crystalline solid. This chemical compound is well known as a precursor to trinitrotoluene or TNT but is primarily prepared as a precursor to toluene diisocyanate.
Most dinitrotoluene is utilised for the preparation of toluene diisocyanate, which is further used to make flexible polyurethane foams. Dinitrotoluene can also be hydrogenated to produce 2,4-toluenediamine, that in turn, is further phosgenated to give toluene diisocyanate. Dinitrotoluene also finds applications in the explosives industry. Although it is not used directly as an explosive and is converted to obtain TNT. Dinitrotoluene is frequently utilised as a plasticiser, deterrent coating, and burn rate modifier in propellants, for example, smokeless gun powders.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Dinitrotoluene production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
