Hengli Petrochemical starts PTA plant using Invista technology

SHANGHAI, CHINA: Invista Performance Technologies (IPT) and Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Co Ltd have successfully started the first phase of Hengli’s purified terephthalic acid (PTA) project in Changxing Island of Dalian, Liaoning Province. The world-scale PTA plant utilizes Invista’s market leading PTA process technology, provided to Hengli under a license agreement.

Invista and Hengli signed the technology licensing agreement in May 2010. Construction of the plant started shortly after that date. In addition to the licensing of its PTA process technology, Invista provided design, procurement, training and start-up services, and continues to provide commissioning service in support of the project.

“We are proud to be a part of the celebration, not just because of the successful start-up of this world-scale PTA plant, but also for a project of such scale completed on an accelerated schedule,” said Steve Kromer, Senior Vice President, IPT, Invista.
