OCTAL Petrochemicals recently signed a contract with Uhde Inventa-Fischer to build a 550,000 tpy plant for the production of PET resin. The contract for delivery of two lines unique to OCTAL will use the state-of-the-art of Melt-to-Resin MTR® technology proprietary to Uhde Inventa-Fischer.

The expansion to OCTAL’s existing capacity will be built at OCTAL’s existing PET complex in Salalah, Oman. The new plant will transform OCTAL into the world’s largest packaging-grade PET manufacturer on one site. The first plant produces APET sheet and bottle-grade chips, also using Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s Melt-To-Resin MTR® technology.

Uhde Inventa-Fischer delivers technology, know-how, engineering, all process equipment – like the ESPREE® and DISCAGE® reactors – auxiliary/utilities processes, site supervision and commission¬ing support for the PET polycondensation plant. MTR® technology has considerable advantages over other technologies in terms of quality, investment costs, raw material usage and utilities consumption, resulting in a significantly lower carbon footprint of the production.

In just a year after Oman-based OCTAL Petrochemicals ramped up production at the world’s first integrated PET resin and PET sheet plant, the company has established itself as one of the world’s leading and most energy efficient PET manufacturers. Uhde Inventa-Fischer is proud to be working closely together with such a dynamic company as OCTAL.
