Phillips Carbon Black Limited (PCBL), a part of RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, is India's largest carbon black producer and exporter in India. The Company has a turnover of Rs 2500 Cr, and four strategically located state-of-the-art plants at Durgapur, Palej, Kochi and Mundra.
Set up in collaboration with a US company Phillips Petroleum, PCBL started production in 1962 with 14,000 metric tonnes (MT) of carbon black at Durgapur. Currently, it has a production capacity of 5,71,000 MT per annum in India, and involves a dedicated capacity of Specialty Blacks of 40,000 MT per annum at Palej, and 76 MW of Green power.
PCBL has etched its global footprints and has a market presence in more than 30 nations with decanting stations, warehouses located near customer locations. The non-rubber or Speciality Black customers include prominent names across the globe. PCBL, with its proud legacy, always strives towards becoming “a trusted GLOBAL player providing cutting edge solutions” to its “PARTNERS and an exciting workplace” to its “PEOPLE”. The Company provides a complete portfolio of products to meet the specific end requirements across Rubber, Plastics, Coatings, Inks and other niche industries globally. The Company has been continuously reinventing itself in order to make the best in class products. Additionally, PCBL's after sales service and strong technical support ensures a fiercely loyal base of customers from around the world..
PCBL is the first carbon black company in the world to receive carbon credits. PCBL has redefined its business by establishing captive power plants at each factory from the off-gas or waste product from the carbon black manufacturing process thus creating a sustainable green movement. The gas, a by-product of carbon black production, is harnessed for generating electricity at the Company's Captive Power Plants (CPP), at Palej, Durgapur, Mundra and Kochi. The Company has heavily cut down on carbon and gas emission, and serves green power to Large Private industrial units and State Electricity utilities.
Through de-bottlenecking projects, PCBL has also expanded its capacity across all four plants. The Company has already started work on expanding the capacity through a greenfield plant, which will be set up in southern India. The brownfield expansion in Palej and Mundra in Gujarat is likely to be completed by the end of FY'19.
From the pioneer plant at Durgapur in the East to Kochi plant in the south, Palej and Mundra plants in the west - PCBL footprint spans across India. Wherever PCBL goes, the Company becomes an integral part of the social eco-system. PCBL's more than 50 years' journey to be the cleanest carbon black company is the result of meticulous planning and committed execution.
