Reliance Industries (RIL) on Friday said it has commissioned a 1,150 KTA new purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and 650 KTA PET resin (polyethylene terephthalate) capacity at Dahej in Gujarat.

With the commissioning of this plant, RIL’s total PTA capacity will increase to 3.2 mmtpa and global capacity share to 4%, it said in a statement, adding that paraxylene, the key feedstock for the PTA plant, is sourced from the company’s Jamnagar refinery in the same state.

The plants are integrated, which will lower the operating cost and capture full-chain margins. Another PTA plant of similar capacity is under construction at the same location.
