UK: BP Unveils PTair Balancing Carbon Emissions in PTA Production
BP today launched a new low carbon and carbon neutral PTA brand with three products that offer producers in the polyester value chain a way to mitigate their carbon dioxide emissions.
London/UK — The new solution is branded PTAir and uses proprietary PX and PTA technology which supports a 29 % lower global warming potential than the average European PTA production. In addition to this BP also announced the launch of PTAir Neutral, the world’s first certified carbon neutral PTA. According to the company, this product is carbon neutral because associated CO2 equivalent emissions are mitigated through the investment in carbon projects providing equivalent CO2 benefits and delivering a net zero position. PTAir is available in Europe and BP plans to roll out in the US and Asia in due course.
