After a brief period of shutdown, Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has restarted its purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plants, and is ramping up production to full capacity at its Dahej manufacturing unit in Bharuch district of Gujarat.
 
Earlier this week, RIL had temporarily shut down its PTA and PET plants at Dahej due to shortage of the right quality of industrial water at Dahej complex because of lower release of dam water and the significantly increased salinity in water supply.
 
During the shutdown period, RIL ensured PTA supplies to downstream customers from its Hazira and Patalganga plants. However, with the Dahej PTA plants now operational, the customers will be getting PTA from all the three locations, RIL said.
 
“RIL has a total PTA capacity of 4.2 million tonnes per year. In India, the current total PTA capacity, including that of RIL, is 6 million tonnes. Another 1.2 million tonnes of PTA capacity will be added in the current year itself. However, the total PTA demand in India is around 5 million tonnes. Therefore, the surplus PTA is being exported as India has sufficient PTA to meet the requirements of its polyester industry,” a RIL spokesperson said. (RKS)
