IPT provides leading technology for the manufacture of PTA. IPT has polymerization technology for the manufacture of PET polymer, and in collaboration with Chemtex International, IPT provides a unique technology for the manufacture of staple fiber.

Polyurethane value chain

INVISTA is a fully integrated spandex producer with developed and commercialised cost competitive technologies for the manufacture of 1,4 butanediol (BDO), Tetrahydrofuran, (CH2)4O (THF), and Polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG), which are the key raw materials for the manufacture of spandex. These technologies are now available for license through IPT.

Other technologies

Included in this portfolio is R²R Technology, for the recovery of valuable chemicals from residue streams, and N2O abatement technologies, for use in plants manufacturing adipic acid (C6H10O4,AA) or nitric acid (HNO3). IPT is constantly evaluating its patent estate and adding other technologies that could be of interest to the chemical and petrochemical industries.
