The aromatic center will have an annual capacity to produce 500,000 tons of paraxylene (PX), 207,000 tons of benzene, 100,000 tons of toluene and 120,000 tons of orthoxylene
(OX), in addition to 335,000 tons of reformate, 1.1 million tons of kerosene, 189,000 tons of diesel oil and 1.065 million tons of light naphtha.
Apart from ethylene and propylene, the company will produce benzene (350,000 tons/year), toluene (75,000 tons/year), paraxylene (500,000 tons/year), orthoxylene
(80,000 tons.year), A 10 component (200,000 tons/year) and C3+C8+Reformate (270,000 tons/year).
TPPI was designed to have an annual capacity to produce 700,000 tons of ethylene and 382,000 tons of propylene in addition to 500,000 tons of paraxylene, 207,000 tons of benzene, 100,000 tons of toluene and 120,000 tons of orthoxylene
. TPPI will also produce oil fuels including 1,1 million tons of kerosene and 189,000 tons of diesel oil a year.

An aromatics plant was designed to use technology from UOP and was to produce 450,000-500,000 t/y of paraxylene, 150,000 t/y of benzene, 150,000 t/y of toluene and 150,000 t/y of orthoxylene
The complex uses the Cyclar process and produces 350,000 t/y of benzene, about 300,000 t/y of paraxylene, 45,000 t/y of orthoxylene
and about 35,000 t/y of meta-xylene.
It produces 750,000 t/y of paraxylene, 430,000 t/y of benzene, 100,000 t/y of orthoxylene
. By-products: 720,000 t/y of light cuts, 2m t/y of heavy cuts, 80,000 t/y of LPG, 375,000 t/y of raffinate and 64,000 t/y of heavy aromatics.
An aromatics plant was to use technology from UOP and was to produce 450,000-500,000 t/y of paraxylene, 150,000 t/y of benzene, 150,000 t/y of toluene and 150,000 t/y of orthoxylene
They had a plant built at this complex to produce orthoxylenes
, paraxylenes and pthalic anhydrides, with the paraxylenes converted into purified terephthalic acids (PTA) for use in polyester manufacture.
