Strengthening its position as the world’s largest producer of polyester fibre and yarn, Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) recently commissioned its new polyester filament yarn (PFY) facility at Silvassa. The newly commissioned plant takes RIL’s total PFY capacity, including the Malaysian facilities, to over 1.5 MMTPA. An automated and environment-friendly plant, the new PFY facility at Silvassa is co-located with RIL’s existing texturising facility at Silvassa eliminating the packaging and logistics costs.
This coupled with integration with PTA will make the Silvassa facility amongst the lowest cost PFY producing sites globally. The commissioning of this facility marks the beginning of the mega petrochemical expansion of RIL.
