Polyester development in India

Reliance Industries Ltd. and DuPont Polyester Technologies have entered into an R&D alliance to jointly develop advanced polyester process and product technologies in India. The alliance will focus on developing technologies for PET resin, polyester filament, and polyester staple fibre. Reliance is currently building a Research and Technology Center near Mumbai. This facility will incorporate the latest polyester research equipment as well as pilot lines for high speed POY, FDY, PSF and bicomponent spinning and several polymerization pilot plants including one featuring the new NG-3 PET resin technology by DuPont. Downstream pilot facilities will include plants to simulate customers’ operations in bottle processing, yarn texturing, weaving and poly-cotton spinning. Later this year, Reliance will commission the world’s first commercial PET resin plant using DuPont’s NG-3 process. This will expand the existing Relpet(R) polyester (PET) packaging resin capacity of 80,000 tpy to 300,000 tpy.
