Octal sets up the world's largest reactor for PET production

April 10/2012
(polyestertime) -- Octal Petrochemicals has installed the worlds largest reactors of melt-to resin technology (MTR) for the production of highperformance PET as the fourth and fifth manufacturing facilities remain firmly on track for completion in May 2012. To date, one million manhours have been completed without a single lost-time-injury (LTI) that reflects Octals strong commitment to safety standards. 

The expansion will add an additional 527,000 tonne a year of PET bottle grade resin to Octals current production capacity of 400,000 tonne per annum, making it the largest producer in the world on one site. The highly energy-efficient reactors have proven successful for the production of high viscous melts, enabling Octal to set the global benchmark for superior product quality and sustainability through the application of the most advanced technology available.

The PET resin and sheets produced are acclaimed by international experts to have the lowest carbon footprint, paving the way for others in the industry to follow the companys pioneering footsteps.
