INVISTA Performance Technologies (IPT) has successfully deployed its latest P8 PTA technology on Jiaxing Petrochemical’s second PTA line. Started up in record time in December 2017, the plant is now consistently operating at 100% design rate with a variable cost performance that is higher than target, firmly establishing Jiaxing Petrochemical’s second PTA line as a leader in terms of raw material and utility consumptions.

This represents yet another major achievement by IPT in the innovative development and successful deployment of industry-leading PTA technologies aimed at creating competitive advantage for our global customers.

Mike Pickens, President of INVISTA Performance Technologies, commented: “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. This would not have been possible without the excellent teamwork and meticulous efforts put in by Jiaxing Petrochemicals and IPT teams.”
