TORONTO (ICIS)--Selenis Canada has started up its polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plant in Montreal and is making first customer shipments, the company said in a filing late on Thursday.

Seleniswhich is owned by Portugal’s Imatosgil Group, acquired Shell’s 95,000 tonne/year polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) plant in Montreal in 2009 and converted it to PET production.

The company did not disclose the plant's PET capacity. Officials did not respond to a request for comment.

In related news, producer Mossi & Ghisolfi (M&G) said this week it plans to build a 1m tonne/year PET facility in the US Gulf coast region.
