Circular Economy Technip FMC Extends Alliance to BP Infinia Technology for Recycling Plastic
Technip FMC currently has a purified terephthalic acid and acetic acid alliance with BP Petrochemicals and has now extended this alliance to BP Infinia Technology. The alliance aims to achieve circularity for difficult-to-recycle PET plastic waste.
UK – Technip FMC has recently announced that its purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and acetic acid alliance with BP has been extended to the new BP Infinia technology, enabling circularity for difficult-to-recycle PET plastic waste, such as highly-coloured bottles and food trays.
Technip FMC was selected in 2000 as ‘Alliance Engineering Contractor’ for Front End Loading (FEL) services for BP’s PTA projects. Over the years, the alliance has developed and adapted to respond to ever more demanding technical requirements. The alliance aims to deliver advantaged capital productivity, applying the highest standards of HSES, operability, innovation and reduced project cycle times.
This alliance is relevant to fully owned and joint-venture projects developed by BP worldwide and builds on the long-standing PTA and acetic acid projects carried out by Technip FMC with BP worldwide. Technip FMC, in the framework of the PTA relationship with BP, has engineered approximately 8 million tonnes per year of PTA capacity over a span of 20 projects.
In addition, through its operating center in Rome, Italy, which will oversee the extended alliance, Technip FMC is the provider of technology licensing packages for PTA third party licensing applications.
