HOUSTON (ICIS)--Mossi & Ghisolfi (M&G) will use Alpek's IntegRex technology for the 1.2m tonne/year purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant it is building in Corpus Christi, Texas, the Italy-based polyester producer said on Tuesday.

M&G is using its own technology for the 1.0m tonne/year polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plant it is building at the same site, the company said.

Already, Alpek has purchased a $350m (€270m) multi-year sourcing agreement, covering rights to 400,000 tonnes/year of the plant's PET, M&G said.

Both plants are expected to begin production in 2016, M&G said.
