Terephthalic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2019

Terephthalic Acid (also known as TPA) is an aromatic dicarboxylic acid, belongs to carboxylic group and is mainly used in industrial sector to produce saturated polyesters, primarily PET (polyethylene terephthalate) followed by PBT (polybutylene terephthalate). It is also used as raw material for production of polyesters used in fabrication of powder and water-soluble coatings.
