The feedstock, terephthalic acid, will be supplied ‘over the fence’ by the company IOCL following production at an adjacent plant. Based on Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s patented, state-of-the-art, energy-efficient melt-to-resin (MTR) technology, the plant will enable the start-up company to produce top-quality PET pellets that are established in the market.
SCG Chemicals plant SCG Chemicals manufactures and offers a full range of petrochemical products ranging from upstream production of olefins and intermediate production of styrene monomer, purified terephthalic acid and methyl methacrylate to downstream production of four main plastic resins, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, and polystyrene, including fabricated products such as film, pipe & fittings, and acrylic sheet.
Corbion Purac has developed a proprietary process to produce 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) from renewable resources with a reduced carbon footprint. FDCA has the potential to replace purified terephthalic acid (PTA) in a variety of applications.
Paraxylene or the Jesus Molecule is one amongst the isomers that structure xylenes. Among the xylene isomers paraxylene plays important role in production of terephthalic acid and dimethyl terphthalate. Paraxylene is a flammable, colorless aromatic hydrocarbon that exists as a liquid at ambient pressure and temperature.
