the world’s third largest chemical company and a global leader in petrochemicals
Ineos, the world’s third largest chemical company and a global leader in petrochemicals, has reached an agreement to license its InnoveneTM G technology for the manufacture of polyethylene to the Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL) for a plant to be built at Lepetkata, District Dibrugarh in Assam, India.

The plant will have an annual capacity of 220,000 MT in a single gas phase reactor and will be capable of manufacturing a wide range of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) grades for use in application areas like films, extrusion, rotomoulding, raffia and injection moulding. It will form part of the Assam Gas Cracker Project, a grass roots integrated petrochemical complex being set up by BCPL.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
