Covestro recently inaugurated its new production lines for polycarbonate compounding at their Greater Noida Plant in India. Through its advanced capabilities, the company offers one of the broadest product portfolios and industry-leading solutions to enhance its customer service. To meet the demands and to support the ‘Make in India’ movement, Covestro planned this expansion in India. This high-tech plant was recently put into operation.
The plant has undergone several de-bottlenecking exercises in the past and as of 2017, it was able to support about 50 per cent of the domestic requirements, while the remaining capacity was supported from Map Ta Phut Site in Thailand. To build a resilient business, the capacity expansion project was initiated in the year 2017.
This is the first large-sized project in India after Covestro was carved out from Bayer in the year 2015. With the installation of the two new lines, the capacity more than doubled for polycarbonate compounding at the Indian plant. This is the first project across all Covestro sites globally to implement the Compounding Blue Print concept.
