TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- Marty Tondhouyan Petrochemical Plant has broken its PET production record in the first 100 days of the current Iranian calendar year which began on March 21.

The director of the plant said it had no feedstock problem and was ready to meet the summer demand of PET bottles, referring to a 10% jump in production of polyethylene terephthalate in the first 100 days of this year.

Mohammad Issa Anusha said the increase in production capacity of the facility was made possible by overhauling various units as well as removing the production bottlenecks in the facility.

The plant supplied 1,200 tons/day of PET bottles during the period.

Martyr Tondgouyan Petrochemical Co., as the largest and only PET producer in the petrochemical industry of Iran, has the capacity to produce various products, including various grades of PET, which requires about 470,000 tons of Para-xylene as feedstock annually.

Tandoogh Petrochemical Company, with an annual production capacity of more than 1.587 million tons, is the only producer of PET and PTA in Iran.

Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) is one of the most important raw materials for production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins, which have grown rapidly in terms of production and consumption in the world.

Polyethylene terephthalate is also one of the most important polyesters used in the production of synthetic fiber and cotton for the textile industry, and producing bottles for soft drinks, cans and containers used in packaging of food, pharmaceutical, and sanitary products, as well as the plastic film industry.
