Assam has a number of refineries including the oldest working refinery of Asia at Digboi. The addition of refining capacity in recent years has given rise to great opportunities for further downstream petro-chemical projects.
The proposed Assam Gas Cracker Project will open up tremendous avenues of opportunities in multi-faceted directions. The products coming out from the Cracker Complex would give rise to a chain of industries.
The various socio-economic linkages expected to be obtained in utilizing the poly-ethylene products are in the field of agriculture, water management, packaging, automobiles, electronics, health & hygiene, education, telecommunications etc. The opportunities based on the petrochemicals complex can be divided into
a) Opportunities based on polymers (LLDPE & HDPE)
b) Opportunities for engineering industries in the petro-chemicals sector.
The downstream industries and ancillaries can throw up multifarious opportunities for income and employment generation to more than 1 lakh persons. The Government of Assam is creating opportunities for development of such downstream industry by promoting a plastic park around the project site.Project Reports
