Uhde Inventa-Fischer: MTR Plant in India
Uhde Inventa-Fischer GmbH, Berlin, Germany, has been awarded a contract by Micro Polypet Pvt. Ltd., an Indian joint venture comprising the chemical companies RLG Group and Action Petrochem Pvt. Ltd., 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 216,000t/a. 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, 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.
The scope of supplies includes the know-how license for the MTR technology, the basic and the detail engineering, supply of all relevant equipment and supervision of the erection and commissioning activities. The client’s operating personnel will also be trained by Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s experienced specialists.
