INVISTA to license R²R Technology to Ariha Chemicals Private Limited
INVISTA Technologies S.à r.l. and Ariha Chemicals Private Limited have reached agreement for the licensing of INVISTA’s R²R Technology.
The project, which will be installed at Taloja, Maharashtra State, India, will have an initial design capacity of 35,000 metric tonnes per year and will be the first stand-alone R²R facility licensed by INVISTA. This technology is a solution that should result in the recovery of valuable chemicals in the residues streams from multiple PTA plants.
Kumar Dharwadkar, Ariha director, said, “Ariha is excited to be embarking on this new venture that could benefit its environmental and variable cost performance by using the R²R Technology from INVISTA.”
Mike Pickens, the general manager for INVISTA’s technology and licensing group—INVISTA Performance Technologies—said, “INVISTA is pleased to have been chosen by Ariha for its project, which will focus on recovering benzoic acid and other materials from a residue waste stream.”
Market-leading R²R and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) technologies are available as licence packages from INVISTA. For more information, please visit the IPT website at www.ipt.invista.com.
