MPL launches pilot for green polyol production

22 November 2021

Manali Petrochemicals (MPL), engaged in the manufacture of petrochemical products, has embarked on the first-of-its-kind pilot project along with its UK technology partner Econic for commercialisation of the latter’s carbon-capture technology.

In September 2021, MPL entered into an agreement with UK-based Econic Technologies to introduce greener polyol products with a reduction in raw material cost. At present, its polyol production is driven by oil-based materials.

MPL has taken up a pilot project to recreate Econic’s technology for its polyol manufacturing. The company expects to complete the pilot project within two years.
