The AlphaPet production facility is co-located with Indorama Ventures Xylenes & PTA for the supply of PTA and some utilities. Production on the first line began in September 2009 with a second line coming on board in June 2010. The facility uses Melt-to-Resin (MTR) technology which has a number of advantages over conventional PET technologies including significant operational savings and reduced energy consumption. In 2011, a new recycling plant built onsite began operations which uses Flake-to-Resin (FTR®) technology. AlphaPet is now one the largest integrated sites in North America.
