An Industrial visit to Croda Chemicals (India) Pvt Ltd, was planned on 27th August, 2011. The main purpose of the event was to learn the practicality of the theoretical concepts, such as New Product Development, Benchmarking, Plant design, Controlling of the entire system, safety regulations etc.
We would like to thank the whole Croda team and other members of the Lab and Plant who gave us an idea on what they do and how it is done and how it impacts the business.
The tour of the plant was very informative and following are some of the aspects covered in details:
-The aspects of the plant design
-The view of the control room, which was the centralised control of the entire plant.
-Safety measures which needs to be taken while transporting the hazardous chemicals which are used as raw materials.
-The visit to the warehouse also helped us in gaining knowledge of how to design the same, on certain aspects how to take care of them.
-The entire cycle of new product development right from customer requirements to creating product in lab environment and bringing it to the production at a large scale.
