DuPont to expand research in India

US based materials firm DuPont is planning to expand its US$50 million research centre in Hyderabad by adding on application development capabilities for performance polymers and make it the company’s largest R&D facility outside the US.

The company spends about US$2 billion on R&D annually, of which a significant slice will be utilised by the Hyderabad facility and its other laboratories in Southeast Asia.

The facility will also for the first time undertake a variety of application development work such as developing light-weight automotive components. With India growing as a hub for small cars, the company feels that the need for replacing heavy metal components with lighter polymer parts would increase.

Research will also focus on titanium technologies that will use the firm’s expertise in particle technology and polymer processing for applications in plastics. Apart from this, it will also work on applications in food packaging, fabric care and grain processing segments.
