Invista Performance Technologies (IPT), the PTA industry’s licensor has launched an upgraded platform that offers licensees significant production efficiencies.

Invista’s latest technology offering called P8 delivers significant variable cost improvements through milder reactor conditions, improved energy integration and recovery.

“The process is a net electricity saver with a reduced environmental footprint resulting from low energy and water usage and reduced waste generation,” Invista informed in a press release.

“The net effect is a greater than $20 per ton variable cost improvement compared to plants licensed just a few years ago and could be up to $40 per ton advantage over competitors’ technologies,” it said.

Since 2000, Invista has been involved with the start-up of 19 world scale PTA plants and with five additional plants at various stages in the design and construction process.

Invista’s latest technology platform is protected by numerous granted and pending patent families, giving licensees the confidence to invest in today’s competitive environment.

Invista Performance Technologies has been licensing PTA and polyester technologies for more than 40 years, driving scale and variable cost reductions through innovations.

IPT’s rigorous technology design process includes fundamental research, modelling, process and safety engineering, functional and operational expertise, and critical vendor developments.

This collective approach to design and technical services leverages the knowledge and expertise of IPT’s personnel to deliver unparalleled value to the market.

IPT also offers world-scale polyester resin and textile CPs with more than 1 million tons per annum of capacity started up in the past year and another 4 million tons per annum of capacity under execution.

Mike Pickens, IPT president said, “While our previous vintages of technology provided competitive advantage, this new PTA platform drives our customers’ variable and capital costs even lower.”

“Our focus on process simplification, value engineering and layout optimisation has resulted in a compact design that significantly improves the capital productivity,” he added.

“Our focus has always been on safely and efficiently reducing variable costs and improving the capital productivity for our licensees,” Pickens noted.

He also added, “We have a proven track record of successful technology transfer with licensees quickly achieving design rates and performance parameters.” (AR)
