PET FACILITIES
AlphaPet Inc.
The AlphaPet Inc. production facility is located in Decatur, Alabama, U.S.A. Its first line came on-stream in September 2009 and its second line in June 2010. It is co-located with the BP Chemicals PX/PTA complex for the supply of PTA and some utilities. The AlphaPet production facility has a rated capacity of 432,000 tonnes per year. The site produces PET polymers for PET bottles, sheets and other applications.

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.
