Hengli Petrochemical Reports Start-up of its 5th  PTA Line Utilising INVISTA’s P8 PTA Technology

INVISTA’s technology and licensing group, INVISTA Performance Technologies (IPT), and Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Co., Ltd (Hengli) are delighted to declare the successful start-up of Hengli’s 5th  PTA line.


Hengli’s 5th  PTA line with 2.5 million tonnes per annum capacity, appropriating INVISTA’s industry-leading P8 PTA technology strongly started up on June 29, 2020.


Hengli also manages another 4 PTA lines on the same site on Changxing Island (Dalian), all of which utilise advantaged PTA technology licensed from INVISTA, with a total capacity of 11.6 million tonnes per annum. 


This makes Hengli the largest PTA producing site in the world. With integrated facilities and advantaged variable cost performance, Hengli’s PTA product is very competitive in the marketplace.


Adam Sackett, IPT vice president PTA, commented, “I congratulate Hengli on completing another important milestone this year. 


The flourishing start-up of Hengli’s 5 th  PTA line yet again highlights the quick ramp-up capability of PTA plants utilising our technology. 


Fast project performance, trouble-free and stable operation at low variable cost, enables our licensees to achieve a good return on their PTA investment”.


INVISTA’s industry-leading PTA technology, including its latest version of P8 technology, is available as a license package from IPT. For more information, please visit the IPT website.
