The single line plant will use the same technology as M&G’s single reactor PET plant in Suape in Brazil, the company said. This will include M&G’s EasyUp SSP technology.

Construction for both plants should last 30 months, M&G said.

Chemtex Global, an M&G subsidiary, will handle the project management, sourcing and construction management for the project
