Invista's technology and licensing group, Invista Performance Technologies (IPT) and Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Company Ltd have announced the successful start-up of Hengli’s fourth purified terephthalic acid (PTA) line. The 2.5 million tonnes per annum capacity plant is located in Changxing Island, Dalian City, Liaoning Province of China.

The start-up, just only 22 months after the project kicked off in early March 2018, is the result of joint effort of all parties involved. The new plant utilises Invista's P8 PTA technology with industry leading variable cost, capital productivity, energy usage, water usage, effluent generation and footprint.

A fifth PTA line, identical to the fourth PTA line, is currently under construction and is expected to start-up around the middle of 2020. Hengli also operates another 3 PTA lines on the same site, each with a capacity of 2.2 million tonnes per annum, using Invista’s P7 PTA technology. This makes the Hengli site the largest PTA site in the world.

"The successful start-up represents yet another major milestone for Hengli, and for Invista. It lifts us beyond the 30 million tonnes mark in terms of successful PTA start-ups. I am appreciative of the collaborative efforts of the Hengli and Invista commissioning teams. The successful start-up of Hengli’s fourth line again demonstrates Invista’s capability in the global PTA market,” said IPT president Mike Pickens.
