Industries such as textile, automobile, and plastic manufacturing in the south Indian market are now set to get their supply of polypropylene from the Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd. (MRPL). The refinery will be able to cater to the demands of these industries after union minister of state for petroleum and natural gas Dharmendra Pradhan commissioned its polypropylene manufacturing unit on Sunday, according to media reports.
 
Pradhan said that the government’s intention was to bring more multi-product petrochemical based industries to the Mangaluru Special Economic Zone (MSEZ).
 
Polypropylene is pellets obtained from propylene produced at the refinery when processing crude oil. It is also used while making laboratory equipment, currency notes, loud speakers, stationery items, plastic ropes and bags and parts of motor vehicles.
 
MRPL managing director H Kumar said the annual demand for polypropylene in South India was at 5 lakh tonnes. The unit inaugurated in Mangaluru has a production capacity of 4.40 lakh tonnes per annum. The company would be able to meet the demand as it was the only one in South India to manufacture it.
 
The unit has been set up at an estimated Rs 1,803 crore as part of the refinery’s third phase of expansion.
