SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--INVISTA Performance Technologies (IPT) and Hengli Petrochemical are delighted to announce the successful start-up of Hengli’s third PTA line utilizing INVISTA’s PTA process technology.
“The 2.2 million-tonne PTA production line is starting up quickly, with one of our streams reaching 100 percent utilization within 24 hours,” said Mike Lin, Hengli vice general manager, said. “The smooth start-up is not surprising, however; our other two PTA lines onsite continue to operate in excess of 100 percent flow sheet rate.”

We continue to be impressed by excellent project execution and operational capability displayed by the Hengli team, achieving what we feel is a market-leading, competitive position.
