Sasa Polyester Sanayi began producing PET at new plant in Turkey

September 21/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sasa Polyester Sanayi began producing polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) in Adana, Turkey in mid-September, said Hibya.

Early stage capacity totalled 500 tonnes/day. The new plant can produce PET bottle, film and fibre grades and production will be distributed among the grades depending on the demand from the market. The new plant will have an effective capacity of 120,000 tonnes this year.

As it was written earlier, Sasa Polyester Sanayi signed a licence and technical service agreement with US-based  nylon and fibre producer INVISTA, paving the way for the construction of a 1.5m tonne/year purified terephthalic acid (PTA) production facility. The project investment would amount to USD935m.

As per ICIS-MRC Price Report, demand continued to subside in the Russian polyethylene terephthalate (PET) market. Some sellers reported a decrease in spot market activity compared to the beginning of the month. Some Russian factories have free volumes of PET chips. On the other hand, a large PET preform producer reported that he had met its target sales of finished products in the current month and that consumption of finished products was quite high.

SASA, headquartered in Seyhan in Adana province, produces polyester staple fibres, specialty polymers and yarns.Its polyester production capacity at the end of 2019 was 700,000 tonne/year.
