Furfuryl Alcohol Production Cost Analysis 2021

Furfuryl alcohol is an organic compound holding a furan substituted with a hydroxymethyl group. In appearance, it is a colourless liquid, but aged samples appear amber. It possesses a faint odour of burning and has a bitter taste. While it is miscible in water, it is unstable in nature. It is soluble in common organic solvents. Its boiling point is around 171°F. It is denser than water. 

Furfuryl alcohol is produced commercially by the hydrogenation of furfural, which is itself typically manufactured from waste biomass like the corncobs or sugar cane bagasse. The most common use of furfuryl alcohol is as a monomer for the synthesis of furan resins.  These polymers are used in cement, thermoset polymer matrix composites, adhesives, coatings, and casting/foundry resins. Polymerisation involves an acid-catalysed polycondensation, generally giving a black cross-linked product. 

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Furfuryl Alcohol 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).


Furfuryl Alcohol Production from Hydrogentaion
  • Furfuryl Alcohol Production from Hydrogentaion

    Furfuryl alcohol is made using hydrogen and furfural through hydrogenation. Furfural and hydrogen are thus transmitted to a hydrogenation reactor, which produces furfuryl alcohol.
