Remembering a Leader

Industrialization of our country started with establishment of Steel Plant at Jamshedpur by Jamshetji Tata in 1912. After India got freedom in 1947 from British and thus became a Sovereign nation, the founding fathers of Republic of India adopted the policies favoring the industrialization of country. Government assumed responsibility to produce key industrial items where private enterprise was unable to shore up the resources required. The rest of the field was left free for private enterprise but gave them protection through export import controls. This was in a way initiation of 'Make in India' program.

PVC compounding is a process of mixing homogenously the different ingredients of compound formulation, to achieve various properties as required by the end application. The basic ingredient, Polyvinyl Chloride resin is compounded with a number of additives such as stabilizers, lubricants, property modifiers, pigments, plasticizers, filers etc. These elements of compound, in definite proportions, are mechanically mixed in a high speed mixer. The output is normally called “Premix” or Dry blend “which is in the form of free flowing powder.

New study says plastics is the sustainable packaging choice

WASHINGTON — Six major categories of plastic packaging significantly reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions compared to packaging made with alternative materials, according to a new study.

Compiled by Franklin Associates for the American Chemistry Council and the Canadian Plastics Industry Association, and using 2010 as a baseline year, the data shows replacing plastic packaging with alternative materials would result in a 4.5 times more packaging weight, an 80 percent increase in energy use and 130 percent more global warming potential.
