RIL commissions new PFY facility at Silvassa

Tags: Industry
Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has commissioned a new Polyester Filament Yarn (PFY) facility at Silvassa in the union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

"With the commissioning of this ultra-modern Polyester Filament Yarn Facility, Reliance's total PFY capacity, including the Malaysian facilities, is in excess of 1.5 million tonnes per annum," the company said in a statement.

The new PFY plant at Silvassa is the most automated and one of the highly environment-friendly plants globally. It is co-located with RIL's existing texturizing facility at Silvassa, eliminating the packaging and logistics costs.

This, coupled with integration with PTA, will make the Silvassa facility amongst the lowest cost Polyester Filament Yarn producing sites globally.

"The commissioning of this facility marks the beginning of the mega petrochemical expansion of Reliance Industries Ltd," it said.
