  • Energy-efficient 2R technology
  • Seamless downstream integration

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions’ subsidiary Uhde Inventa-Fischer signed a contract to build a new world-scale polymer plant for Yürek Polimer A.S.in Bursa, Turkey. The plant is planned to produce 300 metric tons per day (108,000 tons per year) of PET for low viscosity applications. The PET melt produced by thyssenkrupp technology will then be converted into PET Chips, as well as pre-oriented yarn.

Werner Steinauer, CEO of Uhde Inventa-Fischer: “We are very proud that Yürek chose us to build another state-of-the art PET plant. Our 2R process offers many advantages compared to conventional technologies, such as reduced footprint, less CAPEX, optimized energy consumption and lower production costs.”

Alim Yürek, Member of Board of Directors of Yürek Polimer A.Ş.: “We chose a well-proven technology which could be seamlessly integrated into the further production. With this PET investment, the Yürek group will become an integrated textile group.”

Scope of delivery will be basic and detail engineering, the delivery of all necessary components as well as technical services regarding Supervision for Erection, Pre-

Energy-efficient, integrated low viscosity PET plant The design of the polycondensation plant will be based on Uhde Inventa-Fischer’s proprietary technology, which in this case enables the production of superior high-quality polyester polymer. A characteristic feature of the plant is that the polymer melt will be conveyed directly from the polycondensation plant to several downstream lines.
