Uhde Inventa-Fischer awarded contract for 550,000 tpa PET plant for OCTAL Petrochemicals

14-Sep-10
Germany’s Uhde Inventa-Fischer has been awarded a contract to build a 550,000 tpa polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin plant for OCTAL Petrochemicals alongside its existing PET facility at the Salalah Free Zone. The contract for delivery of two lines unique to OCTAL will use the state-of-the-art of Melt-to-Resin MTR technology proprietary to Uhde Inventa-Fischer. OCTAL’s existing PET facility has a capacity of 300,000 tpa. It produces APET sheet and bottle-grade chips, also using Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s Melt-To-Resin MTR technology. The MTR process is based on Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s 2 Reactor technology. It produces PET resin from PTA and MEG plus co-monomers in melt-phase up to the ready-to-use high viscosity for sheet applications. MTR technology has considerable advantages over other technologies in terms of quality, investment costs, raw material usage and utilities consumption, resulting in a significantly lower carbon footprint of the production. In just a year after Salalah-based OCTAL Petrochemicals ramped up production at the world’s first integrated PET resin and PET sheet plant, the company has established itself as one of the world’s leading and most energy efficient PET manufacturers, Uhde Inventa-Fischer added.
