- Current small/pilot 2,5-FDCA (2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid) quantities are produced from sugar (sucrose) derived 5-HMF (5-Hydroxymethylfurfural) . An alternate pathway to FDCA from furfural is via furoic acid.
- Their economic evaluation (page 2) arrived on a total production cost of $2,700/ton PEF (2015).
- 2018 market prices for PET reached €1,350/tonne  (page 3).
- A €1,200/tonne difference (between PEF production cost and PET market price)!! (NB: Adjusted for USD/Euro as well as ton/tonne)
