Plant Engineering Plastic Production in Panipat to Use Uhde Technology
Uhde Inventa-Fischer has been awarded a contract by Micro Polypet, an Indian joint venture comprising the chemical companies RLG Group and Action Petrochem, to build a plant for the production of high-quality PET for bottling and packaging applications. The plant, which will be located in Panipat, India, will have a production capacity of 216,000 tonnes per year.
Panipat/India - 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. Importantly, the plant has also been designed for integration of a second identical line and can be retrofitted with the Flakes-To-Resin (FTR) recycling technology developed and patented by Uhde Inventa-Fischer at any time.
