MOSCOW – Indorama Ventures (IVL) will increase its capacity for processing polyethylene terephthalate (R-PET) to 750 thousand tons per year by 2025, the Thai company said in its annual report.

In his introduction to the report, Dilip Kumar Agarwal, Chief Executive Officer of Feedstock and PET Business, said: “We have committed to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation that we will increase our PET processing capacity to 750 thousand tons by 2025 ”

Along with expanding PET processing capacities, the company expects that by 2025, return on invested capital (ROCE) will be about 12-14%.
