Engro Polymer to venture into Hyrdogen per oxide business with $31 million CAPEX

September 7, 2018 (MLN): Engro Polymer and Chemicals Limited has announced to enter the Hydrogen Per Oxide business through a greenfield manufacturing facility with a Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) to the amount of $23 Million, according to a notification filed by the firm on the Pakistan Stock Exchange.

The project is to be funded through internal cash generation.

According to the firm, “Engro Polymer & Chemicals Limited derives Hydrogen as part of its Caustic manufacturing process. Currently Hyrdogen is largely being used as fuel which is not the best value creation for Hydrogen.”
