IPCL plans to hike its PVC plant capacity by 100% to 400 KT / Annum, while the cracker capacity at the Vadodara Complex would be increased by 30% to 200 KT / Annum. The Butadiene plant would see a hike in capacity to 75 KT / Annum. Benzene production would increase by 50 % to 60 KT / Annum. Output levels at the ACN and PP facilities would also be improved by 15 % levels.

RIL is plans to increase Polypropylene Capacity by 40%, i.e. 1Million Tonnes / Annum to 1.4 Million Tonnes / Annum.

   
Kindly note that plant capacities are constantly changing. We will endeavour to keep abreast with these capacity changes at all times however sometimes we may be delayed in carrying out the changes on the site. In the event of an oversight from our end we request you to intimate us on info@polymerupdate.com and oblige.
