GAIL to raise polymer output capacity

Our Bureau

New Delhi , May 7

GAIL (India) Ltd is nearly doubling its polymer production capacity from 2.60 lakh tonnes per annum (TPA) to 4.40 lakh TPA at an investment cost of Rs 725 crore.

According to a GAIL statement here, the first phase of the investment plan has already been implemented in April this year through de-bottlenecking of downstream units at a cost of Rs 76 crore. With this, the current production capacity at GAIL's Pata unit increased by 20 per cent to 3.10 lakh TPA.

De-bottlenecking of the units is envisaged to result in a cut in production cost and specific energy consumption by about five per cent each.
