CHINA - China Prosperity (Jiangyin) Petrochemical Company Limited (also referred to as Hanbang Petrochemical) has successfully started up its second PTA line; on-spec product was achieved within 24 hours of the 14 March start-up.
Located in ShiZhuang Petrochemical Industrial Zone in Jiangyin city of Jiangsu Province, China Prosperity’s second PTA line incorporates Invista Performance Technologies (IPT)’s E2R, Solvent Interchange and R2R technologies, further enhancing the competitiveness of the technology in terms of capital productivity, variable cost and environmental performance. The Solvent Interchange technology, which has inherently low capital cost, has been successfully deployed with additional advantages achieved through the use of locally manufactured rotary pressure filters.
The new PTA line has an annual production capacity of 2,200,000 tons.
China Prosperity provides quality products and service to filament, bottle chip and staple industry customers mainly located in Eastern China.
China Prosperity is also currently operating another Invista PTA line with an annual capacity of 600,000 tons – which was first started up in January 2011 - on the same site and is constructing a polyester resin plant utilizing Invista technology.
