M&G Chemicals is a leader in product innovation in the field of PET resins.
With 60 years of experience in plastic processing, a significant commitment to research and development and in-depth knowledge of the applications for plastic polymers, M&G Chemicals is a leader in product innovation in the field of PET resins.

The Mossi Ghisolfi Group  was the first producer to adapt PET resin for the packaging of mineral water in the 1980s.
Starting in the late 1990s, the company developed barrier monolayer PET, which delays oxygen and carbon dioxide from passing through the container, allowing carbonation to last longer inside the bottle.
M&G Chemicals is the only producer in the Americas capable of manufacturing chemically recycled PCR-grade PET, which is a recyclable grade of PET that can be chemically broken down into its component parts, MEG and PTA, in the recycling process, thus allowing the production of 100% recycled PET.

Our affiliates are currently developing proprietary technology, to which we have exclusive access, for the production of “bio”-PET raw materials directly from renewable sources. We believe that these technologies will enable us to benefit from anticipated growth in the bio-PET market, driven by the increase in demand for environmentally sustainable PET in recent years, as many customers are willing to pay a premium for bio-PET produced from renewable, non-food feedstock resources.
The PROESA ® technology owned by our affiliate, Beta Renewables, is a unique pre-treatment technology for the production of fermentable sugars from any biomass, including fast-growing, non-food feedstock. We also have an exclusive license to the MOGHI technology owned our affiliate, Biochemtex, for the production of bio-PX, and we are currently developing downstream technology for the production of bio-MEG. We expect that the “bio” raw materials produced through these technologies can be incorporated into the traditional PET production process, thereby using existing processes and technologies to produce bio-PET.

We believe that the quality and breadth of our product offerings provide us with a significant competitive advantage in the global PET resin market. We are able to provide very sophisticated PET grades which many of our key customers require for specialty packaging applications such as sports drinks, vitamin water, beer, juices, tea, sauces and baby food. As a result of the proprietary technologies we own and to which we have exclusive access, we are able to continuously expand our platform to include additional grades of PET, including bio-grades, with specific characteristics to meet market demand. We also frequently upgrade our PET grades on an individual customer basis to provide customers with processing cost savings and higher performance.
The world’s largest resin-processing plant is expected to be fully operational by mid-2017, creating up to 250 permanent jobs and manufacturing over a million tons of PET resin a year at Port Corpus Christi.
