Octal ups its PET capacity
OCTAL has tripled its annual production capacity of PET resin with the commissioning of two of the world's largest vertical reactors in Salalah, Oman.
With a total output of over 1 million tonnes/year of PET, Octal says it is the world’s largest single site PET producer.
The company is now halfway through its investment plan with additional capacity scheduled for 2015 and 2016. When complete, the site will manufacture a total of 2.5 million tonnes/year both PET resin and its primary raw material, PTA.
