RIL kicks off mega polyester project work
Mumbai: Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) on Wednesday said it has started implementing its planned world-scale projects in India across the polyester chain. The diversified company, whose hydrocarbons business has been grappling with low gas production from its fields in the KG basin, said the expansion in polyester is its largest capacity expansion in the sector and is aimed at consolidating its position as the world’s largest integrated polyester producer.

In a media statement, RIL listed its phased capacity expansion which included: 1) A planned capacity of 2.30 million tonne of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) at Dahej with the ability to increase it by another 1.15 million tonne of PTA at a later stage. These plants will be integrated with the paraxylene plants at Jamnagar for raw material and will in turn cater to the new polyester plants being constructed simultaneously. 2) 395,000 tonne of polyester filament yarn (PFY) and 140,000 tonne of polyester texturised yarn at Silvassa. 540,000 tonne of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) at Dahej with the option to add 540,000 tonne of PET at the same location at a later stage. 3) 290,000 tonne of PSF at Dahej. The company also said these plants would be integrated with Reliance’s captive PTA and mono ethylene glycol (MEG).
