India’s first and world’s largest carbon fibre plant.

As per prior commitments, Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani has announced plans to build India’s first and one of the world’s largest Carbon Fibre plants at Hazira, Gujarat in the 45th AGM on Monday, 29th August. In this, the plants will have a capacity of 20,000 MTPA based on Acrylonitrile feedstock. Overall, in the Oil to Chemical segment (O2C), Ambani announced a huge investment of Rs. 75,000 crore over the next five years to expand capacities in existing as well as new value chains. The first phase of the plant will be completed in 2025.

In the Chairman's interviews, he informed that Reliance will also invest and work on a 1 MMTPA PET plant at Dahej. Both PTA and PET are targeted for completion by 2026. Polyester expansion with a capacity of over 1 MMTPA will be done in phases by 2026.

"The company will further integrate its composites business with Carbon Fibre to produce Carbon Fibre composites. Apart from other applications, Carbon Fibre composites are also used to meet the increasingly growing lightweight requirements of Mobility and Renewable Energy. Thus, Carbon Fibre promises to be a multi-decade growth engine for O2C”, Ambani highlighted.
