“This award reinforces GTC’s experience and expertise to upgrade steam cracker by-products, using the most advanced aromatics extraction technology available,” said Joseph C. Gentry, GTC’s Vice President, Licensing and Technology.

Sashikant Madgula, GTC’s Regional Licensing Manager for Southeast Asia, added: “GTC Technology continues to expand its Southeast Asia client base serving as a technology partner. Recovery of these valuable co-products is key to profitability of our client, and will also contribute to Indonesia’s economic growth.”
