Marwar - - ALL THINGS [ Great and Small ] -

Ac­cord­ing to news­pa­per re­ports, Phillips Car­bon Black Limited (PCBL), a part of RP-San­jiv Goenka Group, plans to set up a green­field car­bon black plant in Tamil Nadu, be­sides go­ing in for brown­field ex­pan­sion in two of its ex­ist­ing plants in Da­hej and Palej over the next two years, for a com­bined ex­pen­di­ture of `900 crore. The move is en­vis­aged to raise the com­pany’s pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity by 50 per cent to seven lakh tonnes. Apart from these, the com­pany also has plants in Mun­dra and Dur­ga­pur. Car­bon black is used as a re­in­forc­ing agent in tyres. It gives sta­bil­ity and hard­ness to tyres and also their char­ac­ter­is­tic black colour. Be­sides tyres, car­bon black is used in a num­ber of other in­dus­tries.
