  • 1. Chemicals Production Pathways About p-Xylene Reports p-Xylene is one of the most important commercial isomers among the xylenes group. Almost all of its production is converted to terephthalic acid and dimethylterephthalate, and then to polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for ultimate use in fibers, films, and resins. The Intratec portfolio ( includes reports comparing the economic potential of p-Xylene production pathways. Each report confronts the economics of producing p- Xylene from different feedstocks, across different locations. General information included in our reports is presented below. AN INTRODUCTION TO P-XYLENE KEY TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF EACH P-XYLENE PATHWAY * Description * Applications * Production pathways diagram * Description * Product(s) generated & raw material(s) consumed * Pathway scheme * Chemistry * Pathway input & output figures (including raw material(s) consumption) * Block flow diagram of representative industrial processes * Related technology licensors COMPARISON OF PATHWAYS' ECONOMIC POTENTIAL, IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES * Comparative analysis of capital costs * Comparative analysis of production costs * Historical behavior of the economic potential over the last 4 years * Comparison between p-Xylene price and raw materials costs of each pathway PATHWAYS COMPARATIVE SUMMARY GRAPH Coverage of p-Xylene Production Pathways Reports Each report compares p-Xylene manufacturing alternatives, including: REPORT BASIS & ASSUMPTIONS REFERENCES ANALYSIS METHODOLOGY Compare the costs of production pathways Identify the most competitive alternatives in each world region Learn about alternatives for manufacturing p- Xylene
  • 2. About our Methodology Intratec has distilled the expertise gained from more than a decade supporting companies worldwide to devise consistent methodologies, which ensures the development of holistic, coherent and consistent reports. The development of a Chemical Production Pathways report starts with exhaustive research focused on existing alternatives (pathways) for manufacturing a given chemical, related to different raw materials and/or products generated. This encompasses patents, encyclopedias, text books, technical papers and non-confidential information disclosed by licensors, duly reviewed by Intratec's highly experienced engineers. Subsequently, the Intratec team conducts additional bibliographical research and data gathering focused on each individual production pathway, with the goal of identifying the key aspects of the pathway under analysis, including overall manufacturing scheme, raw material(s) required and product(s) generated, related industrial processes and technology licensors. To compare the economic aspects of the pathways, Intratec engineers use average transaction prices of products and raw materials across different regions, based on trade statistics and robust cost models. Our cost models are founded on a number of established cost estimating methods, based on mathematical and statistical processing of an extensive volume of actual cost data of well-known industrial processes. For a 10-page description of our methodology, visit Reports Comparing p-Xylene Production Pathways P-XYLENE PRODUCTION PATHWAYS P125A - This report compares the costs of p-Xylene production via the following pathways: * Pathway 1: p-Xylene production from mixed xylenes * Pathway 2: p-Xylene production from mixed xylenes (with benzene as by-product) * Pathway 3: p-Xylene production from toluene (with benzene as by-product) * Pathway 4: p-Xylene production from C9 aromatics (with benzene as by-product) To know more / order our reports, visit For a complete and updated list of available reports, visit
