New PET plant in Oman on track for 2012 commissioning

December 16/2011

(PlastEurope) -- Masqat-based Octal (Oman) says it is on target to commission its new PET hub in the sultanates Salalah free zone in May 2012. The new plant will include two DPET production lines, with capacity for 263,000 t/y each, raising Octals production capacity in Salalah to 927,000 t/y, "making it the largest in the world on site", the company says.

"Additional volumes of resin production will spur the growth of the packaging industry and will encourage markets to migrate from less efficient materials to PET as the preferred clear rigid polymer," said Octal chairman Sheikh Saad Suhail Bahwan.

A completely integrated facility, the Salalah PET hub was designed to yield the lower carbon footprint products, Octal says, adding that the plant uses 67% less electricity to manufacture DPET sheet and 38% less energy in the production of DPET resin. The facility is also able to recycle trim waste during the manufacturing process.
