JBF Petrochemicals Limited, step subsidiary of JBF Industries Limited, has commissioned the world’s largest single reactor train purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant at Mangalore SEZ, Karnataka. Production of PTA is a backward integration for JBF Industries and its subsidiaries abroad, making the company self sufficient in meeting its PTA requirements.

“The plant, with capacity of 1.25 million tonnes per annum, uses British Petroleum’s (BP) BP technology, known to be the most cost effective and highly environment friendly. This is the world’s largest single reactor train PTA plant,” JBF Industries chairman Bhagirath C Arya said in a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange.

“Pursuant to the initial run, the company plans to take routine checks and remove deficiencies, based on technical guidelines, for sustainable satisfactory technical performance. This new plant will increase the competitiveness of the company in the polyester chain and is expected to improve margins,” the statement said.

Since its establishment as a yarn texturising company in 1982, JBF Industries has backward integrated into manufacturing partially oriented yarn (POY), polyester (BOPET) Film and also various types of bottle grade, film grade and textile grade polyester chips. Today, the company is one of the industry leaders in the polyester industry value chain.

The company is amongst the top 5 domestic market leaders in textile grade chips, bottle grade chips and partially oriented yarn. Internationally also, JBF is amongst the top 10 manufacturers of bottle grade chips and polyester films, according to the company website.

JBF has been accredited with ISO 9001 system of quality standards and also ISO 14001 certificate for environmental management. (RKS)
