Uhde Inventa-Fischer to build Europe`s biggest PET plant

The plant engineering and construction company Uhde Inventa-Fischer GmbH, Berlin, is to build a PET plant for its Indian customer JBF Industries Ltd., a leading producer of polyester granules. The plant with a total name plate capacity of 432,000 tonnes a year will be located in Geel/ Belgium and will produce highquality PET for bottling and packaging applications. Feedstock terephthalic acid will be produced by BP Chembel N.V. on the same site and supplied.

The plant will work on the base of Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s Melt-To-Resin (MTR) technology. The Integration of a 54,000 tonne-per-year Flakes-To-Resin (FTR) recycling line will also allow 25% of

the PTA required for the production of PET to be replaced with recycling material. The FTR process is FDA-approved, which certifies that the quality of the PET pellets produced is adequate for food applications.

Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s scope of supplies includes the know-how licence for the MTR- and FTR technologies, the basic- and detail engineering, supply of all plant components and supervision of the construction and commissioning activities. The operating personnel will also be trained by Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s specialists.
