Turkey’s Köksan awards contract to Uhde-Fisch for new 216,000 tpa PET plant

Turkish PET perform processor Köksan has contracted plant construction engineering firm Uhde-Fischer to build a new 216,000 tpa plant for the production of PET in Gaziantep, Turkey, as per Plasticstoday. The plant will be based on Uhde-Fischer's Melt-to-Resin technology, which does away with solid state polymerization to save energy and to realize other benefits. Further investment for a second identical line is expected soon. Uhde-Fischer's Melt-to-Resin (MTR) process creates pellets without need for solid state polymerization (SSP); leading to substantial energy savings, reduced investments, operating and maintenance costs. MTR produces PET from terephthalic acid (PTA) and mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) using a two-reactor system in melt phase up to the ready-to-use intrinsic viscosity (iV) for bottle or film sheet applications.
