Capacity 350,000 TPY
Products Paraxylene


Used 350,000 TPY Paraxylene Plant built in 1969. The plant uses xylene isomerisation reaction process and crystallisation separation technology. This complete plant produces high purity Paraxylene at approximately 1000 te/day. The process converts mixed xylenes into paraxylene, and recovers high purity paraxylene using crystallisation technology to separate paraxylene from the other xylene isomers (ortho and meta-xylene) and ethyl benzene. Following its shutdown the plant has undergone a full decommissioning and decontamination process.
