MOSCOW (MRC) -- Invista Performance Technologies (IPT) has announced the success of its latest P8 PTA technology deployed on Jiaxing Petrochemical’s second PTA Line, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.
Started up in record time in December 2017, the plant is now consistently operating at 100 percent design rate with a variable cost performance better than the target, firmly establishing Jiaxing Petrochemical’s second PTA Line as the global leader in terms of raw material and utility consumptions.
"It is a proud moment for IPT, seeing our P8 PTA technology demonstrate the productivity and variable cost performance that we promised to the market and our loyal customer, Jiaxing," Mike Pickens, President of Invista Performance Technologies said. This would not have been possible without the excellent teamwork and meticulous efforts put in by Jiaxing Petrochemicals and IPT teams."
Mr. Xu, President of Tongkun Group, is appreciative of the performance of Jiaxing Petrochemical’s second PTA line. He said, "The second PTA line is running well, and we look forward to continued support from Invista for further optimization of the plant. This represents yet another major achievement by IPT in the innovative development and successful deployment of industry-leading PTA technologies aimed at creating a competitive advantage for our global customers.
