Environmentally sustainable PET resin formulations.
We are also capable of producing environmentally sustainable PET resin formulations, such as PCR-grade and bio-grade PET, which can be used for the same end-use applications as virgin PET.
  • PCR-grade PET
    PET resin derived from post-consumer recycling. According to PAL, we are currently the only PET producer of chemically recycled PCR-grade PET in the Americas. We believe that our technology is superior to that of our competitors as it allows us to chemically break down recycled PET into its component parts, PTA and MEG, which can then be used to produce virgin PET. Our competitors do not reduce recycled PET down to its component parts, but rather recycle PET mechanically, requiring it to be mixed with virgin PET in a ratio of one part recycled PET to nine parts virgin PET, and the resulting PET is considered a lower quality product.

  • Bio-grade PET
    PET resin produced from raw materials derived from renewable energy sources. We are the only PET producer with exclusive access to second-generation bio-technology, as we have acquired from our affiliates in M&G Finanziaria exclusive rights to use their proprietary technology to produce PET raw materials from biomass.
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.


Valmet and Biochemtex collaborate in developing technology for lignin derived biochemical .
Valmet and Biochemtex will start to cooperate in the field of conversion of lignin into biochemicals.

M&G Chemicals plans to increase the capacity of its Corpus Christi facility.
