Sichuan Shengda successfully commissions PTA unit in China

July 09/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Shanghai?Sichuan Shengda has successfully started up a new purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant in Nanchong, Sichuan Province, China, as per Apic-online.

The PTA facility, which utilizes Invista's proprietary P7 PTA process technology, has a nameplate capacity of 1-million t/y. On-spec production was achieved on 24 May 2019.

The plant also uses Invista's proprietary R2R technology for the production of benzoic acid. Cost of the project was not given.

"With this start-up, IPT (Invista Performance Technologies) and our licensees have now successfully commissioned seven PTA projects totaling over 11-million tons per annum capacity since 2015," noted IPT President Mike Pickens.

We remind that, as MRC wrote previously, in February 2019, Indorama Ventures (IVL) commenced production of PTA and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) at plants it acquired from Artlant PTA in Portugal and EIPET in Egypt, respectively.
