OREANDA-NEWS. December 16, 2013. China’s Xianglu Petrochemicals Co. Ltd. has planned the test run of its second purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant in the end of December 2013.

“Currently, the plant is under the final phase of construction and test run is planned by the end of next month,” a company official told fibre2fashion. Located in the South Haicang Industrial Area of Xiamen City, the first PTA plant of Xianglu came on stream in October 2002.

The plant is capable of producing 900,000 tpa of PTA, which is the world’s largest single-line PTA production capacity.

The construction of second PTA plant, with production capacity of 1.5 mln tpa, began in November 2006, and is now about to be completed.
