Toluene Diisocyanate Production Cost Analysis 2020

Toluene diisocyanate or TDI is an organic compound, which is manufactured on a large scale. It is generally obtained through the nitration of toluene. 2,4-TDI is produced in 3 steps from toluene via dinitrotoluene and 2,4-diaminotoluene or TDA. In appearance, all the isomers of TDI are colourless, although some commercial samples may appear yellow.

The isocyanate functional groups in TDI often react along with the hydroxyl groups in order to create carbamate and urethane links. It is used in the manufacturing of flexible polyurethane foams. The flexible polyurethane foams produced by toluene diisocyanate also finds extensive application in the production of bedding, furniture, carpet underlay, and packaging.

TDI finds extensive application in the production of coatings, adhesives, elastomers, and sealants as well. It is used to make lighter automobile components to make the vehicle lighter and more fuel-efficient. Thus, the automobile components produced using TDI  play a vital role in energy conservation.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Toluene Diisocyanate 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).

Toluene Diisocyanate Production from DNT

Toluene Diisocyanate Production from Toluene via Phosgenation
  • Toluene Diisocyanate Production from Toluene via Phosgenation

    This report shows the economics of a liquid-phase phosgenation process for TDI production. Nitration of toluene using nitric acid to produce dinitrotoluene takes place before the catalytic hydrogenation is done to produce toluene diamine (TDA).
