The plant employs the new generation Uhde Inventa-Fischer (UIF) Melt to Resin (MTR®) technology. The use of MTR technology has a number of advantages over conventional PET technologies including significant capital and operational savings, reduced energy consumption and a smaller environmental footprint.
In 2011, a new recycling plant built onsite came into operation to serve major customers with post-consumer recycled PET. The plant uses Flake to Resin (FTR®) Technology also from UIF.
The plant has announced expansion plans to double the capacity by end of 2015 making it one the largest integrated sites in North America.
