PETF is used for the production of PETF bottles and cans, food containers and packaging, as well as other technical and household products.
The nominal rated capacity of the PETF factory is 220 000 tons per year.
One of the latest MTR (Melt-To-Resin) technologies of the German Uhde Inventa-Fischer (UIF) company is used for the production of PETF.
Azat Bikmurzin, Director of the Tatneft’s oil/gas and petrochemical complex, said:
- We are glad that such a modern enterprise will become a part of the Tatneft Group
- The EKOPET’s products are in great demand and hold a stable position in the market
- We are confident that this asset will allow Tatneft to fill the missing link in the chain from the producer of raw materials to the end consumer and also to use this ground for the further development of the company’s petrochemical business
The signing of the legally binding documents for the deal is expected in the coming weeks.
