With the help of approximately 250 KT of polymer grade Propylene, the refinery will be capable of producing various grades of polyols. The Executive Director of the BPCL’s Kochi Refinery, Mr. Murali Madhavan said that this advancement in the infrastructure will be beneficial for the domestic market as it will cut short the country’s import dependency for Polyols which is a major feedstock for the manufacturing of polyurethanes, required to produce footwear foam and other items.
