Indorama PET plant third line commissioned by Uhde Inventa-Fischer

September 28/2010

(plastemart) -- In September 2009, Uhde Inventa-Fischer successfully commissioned the first line of Indoramaís PET resin plant in Alabama (USA). The second line came online in June 2010. The plant has an annual capacity of 432,000 tons and uses Uhde Inventa-Fischerís proprietary MTR technology. The plant produces various grades of resin at the same time, to be used for bottled water and CSD applications, among others. It sources the PTA from an adjacent BP facility.

The MTR process eliminates the SSP and the high energy costs inherent to this process. It reduces investment, operating and maintenance costs, has a higher raw material yield and results in products of superior quality. The MTR process is based on Uhde Inventa-Fischerís proprietary 2 Reactor technology which uses the patented ESPREE and DISCAGE reactors to obtain the desired high melt viscosities. Uhde Inventa-Fischerís scope of supply and services included the licence, the basic and detail engineering, supply of all equipment and supervision of the erection and commissioning activities.
