Benefit from the growing demand for biobased chemicals
Keep it simple! Making furfural is not rocket science.
It’s all about the integrating furfural production into the mass and energy balance of a pulp or sugar mill,
The total operating cost (raw materials, utilities, fixed costs and depreciation costs) estimated to produce PEF was about $2,700/ton in Q2 2015.
However, bio-degradation of PET will result in breakdown products such as methane or (at best, if methane is recovered/converted to) CO2, the so called Greenhouse Gases, which in this case a derived from oil.
