Recent Development

June 2021:
Thirumalai Chemicals Ltd (TCL) of India announced plans to construct an integrated plant capable of producing 180,000 tons of phthalic anhydride (PA) per year at its Dahej complex in western Gujarat state. The project, which is expected to produce 30,000 tons of fine and specialty chemicals per year, will be carried out in two phases. TCL anticipates bringing the first phase online approximately two years after obtaining all necessary permissions for the project. The integrated plant's raw materials would be supplied mostly from Gujarat. TCL intends to promote its products primarily in India's western and northern areas, with an eye toward exports. India's use of PA and its derivatives such as colorants, polymer additives, and fine chemicals reinforced polymers remains low in comparison to other countries, despite high demand growth. TCL, one of India's two largest producers of PA, now operates a 144,000-tonne-per-year factory in southern Tamil Nadu. Additionally, the corporation manufactures maleic anhydride and its derivatives, plasticizers, and esters through subsidiaries in India and Malaysia.

April 2021:
KLJ Plasticizers Ltd (KLJ) of India announced plans to develop a greenfield 200,000-ton-per-year phthalic anhydride (PA) factory in western Gujarat, a company source said on Thursday. The business plans to open the factory in 2024. Additionally, the complex, which is projected to cost USD 82 million, will manufacture 7,100 tons of maleic anhydride (MA) and 480,000 tons of other plasticizers every year.
