BCML is set to venture into Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) manufacturing with a new fully integrated facility. The new venture will facilitate the establishment of India’s first-ever industry scale bio-polymer plant. The new PLA venture is well- aligned with the sustainability goals envisioned by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, in order to combat climate change.

With an estimated investment of Rs. 2000 crores in phases over a period of around 2.5 years, the new project is aimed to fuel India’s journey towards achieving net zero emissions by 2070. The new venture will mark the establishment of the first-ever industrial bio- plastic plant in India. The state-of-art PLA factory will command a whopping capacity at global scale of 75’000 t/a. To expedite the construction of the new plant, it will be located on a greenfield site, beside one of the existing sugar plants, wherein a significant proportion of the local infrastructure already exists.

The efficient usage of bio-based raw material, to produce Polylactic Acid (PLA) and bioplastics marks the onset of a significant shift from the current linear consumption manufacturing paradigm to the one, led by circular and regenerative principles. Additionally, most of India’s current SUP (Single Use Plastic) consumption and its respective applications can be replaced by PLA and PLA compounds.
