Desalination considered for Texas PTA/TEP plant

Desalination is among the possible options to source water for M&G Group’s purified terephthalic acid / polyethylene terephthalate (PTA/TEP) plant in Corpus Christi, Texas, USA.

The company told D&WR: “We believe that the position of our property calls for a detailed analysis on the possibility of a desalinization plant, but no firm decision has been taken. Our demand is for 6 MGD (22,700 m³/d) of water for cooling purposes.”
