Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA)

RIL is amongst the top 5 PTA producers in the world with a mammoth capacity of 5 MMTPA. Out of this 4.4 MMTPA is in India and the rest is in Malaysia. It has doubled its manufacturing capacity in the last one year by adding world class facilities at Dahej, amounting to 2.3 MMTPA. RIL’s world class manufacturing technology and strategic interest in this business are the main reasons for this growth.

PTA was first introduced in 1965 as an alternative feedstock to Dimethyl Terephthalate (DMT) for the production of Polyester. By end of 1999, almost 85% of total world production was based on PTA and this continues to grow. Today, PTA is the preferred raw material for Polyester which finds applications in all walks of life like clothing, furniture, upholstery, containers and films.

RIL PTA continues to be the raw material of choice among polyester manufacturers across India. RIL is the only Indian company to service domestic customers using all three mediums i.e. tankers, 1.1 MT bags and 50 Kg bags. The company also embarked on establishing a global PTA footprint by entering the exports market this year and is currently exporting to Middle East, Africa and European regions.
