MUMBAI, INDIA: Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has commissioned its new polyester filament yarn (PFY) facility at Silvassa in India. The entire production from this facility has been successfully placed in the domestic and international markets. With the commissioning of this ultra-modern PFY facility, Reliance’s total PFY capacity, including the Malaysian facilities, is in excess of 1.5 million metric tonne per annum. This expansion further strengthens RIL’s position as the world’s largest producer of polyester fibre and yarn.

The new PFY plant at Silvassa is the most automated and one of the most environmental friendly plants globally. It is co-located with RIL’s existing texturizing facility at Silvassa eliminating the packaging and logistics costs. This coupled with integration with PTA will make the Silvassa facility amongst the lowest cost polyester filament yarn producing sites globally. The commissioning of this facility marks the beginning of the mega petrochemical expansion of Reliance Industries Ltd.
