Abstract: Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) is an important polyester, which benefits from good thermal, mechanical, and physical properties, which makes it a suitable material for various applications. Although PBTs are significantly less than PET, PBT prices are also higher, but its characteristics make it a better choice (and in some cases the best one) for certain applications, especially for some molding of plastic parts. In this research, the feasibility of production of PBT in the Shahid Tondgoyan Petrochemical Company (STPC) as an alternative to PET was studied and three preferred industrial production methods were evaluated and the most preferred method was suggested. A research road map for the acquisition of know-how of this new alternative product was planned and divided into four steps. Required time and cost for each step was estimated
