Terephthalic acid is an example of an organic compound. This white solid is known as a commodity chemical that is used principally as a precursor to the polyester PET.
Terephthalic acid is often used in paint as a carrier. Terephthalic acid is also used as a raw material to make terephthalate plasticizers such as dioctyl terephthalate and dibutyl terephthalate. Moreover, it is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a raw material for certain drugs. Terephthalic acid-based polyesters and polyamides are used in hot melt adhesives. Furthermore, the acid is a common component for the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks.
Terephthalic acid is sometimes used as a filler in military smoke grenade weapons such as M90 vehicle-employed smoke grenade and the American M83 smoke grenade. It makes a thick white smoke that acts as an obscurant in the visual and near-infrared spectrum.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Terephthalic Acid 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).
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
