Naftec SPA, a unit of Sonatrach, is nearing mechanical completion on a paraxylene (PX) production plant in Skikda, Algeria, according to technology licensor GTC Technology, Houston.

Expected to be fully operational later this year, the plant will incorporate CrystPX technology, licensed by GTC Technology, to recover PX from reformate feedstock, and GT-IsomPX, a process using ISOXYL catalyst from Sud-Chemie AG, a subsidiary of Clariant, to isomerize the C8 aromatics into additional PX.
