Reliance Industries has commissioned the second and final phase of paraxylene project at Jamnagar in Gujarat.
It said the project is part of the USD 16 billion investment it is making in expanding petrochemical production capacity to lower feedstock and fuel costs and boost profits.
“Reliance is executing major projects in its energy and materials chain at Jamnagar covering para-xylene, cracker complex along with downstream plants and gasification,” the company said in a statement.
Paraxylene is used to make building blocks for fibre and films. The projects will add significant value to Reliance’s refining and petrochemical business and enable Jamnagar complex to achieve energy self-sufficiency, it said.
