Mixed xylene is the second most-consumed aromatic product in the world for chemicals manufacture. Mixed xylene is a highly volatile, colorless liquid with a sweet odor. Mixed xylene refers to an equilibrium of four isomers with chemical formula C8H10, namely meta-xylene (45-60%), ortho-xylene (15-20%), para-xylene (15-20%) and ethylbenzene (≤ 20%). Mixed xylene is used as a solvent by paints and pesticides industries. Additionally, it is used in gasoline blends to increase the octane number of the blend and serves as a feedstock for isolation of three xylene isomers.
The number of RTD beverage manufacturers has increased in the market in the past few years, leading to growth in demand for PET bottles. Mixed xylene is the essential raw material for the manufacture of terephthalic acid, that is used in the production of PET monomer, bis (2-hydroxyethyl) terephthalate. Thus, mixed xylene demand has mirrored the demand for PET bottles.
