Daramic Battery Separators: Gujarat Greenfield Project

For over 80 years, Daramic LLC has led the way in developing new and innovative products for the lead acid-battery industry. As a business unit of Polypore International Inc.—with headquarters in North Carolina, U.S. — Daramic today supplies more than 50% of the global demand for high performance polyethylene (PE) battery separators to the lead acid-battery industry. As a global leader, Daramic operates nine manufacturing and finishing facilities.

Presently, the Indian battery industry is importing the PE separators from various parts of world. However, with setting up of the Daramic Plant in Dahej, Gujarat, imports would reduce substantially with expected foreign exchange saving of over $ 16 mn annually. The plant will manufacture high quality battery separators in India on a large scale to give significant value added benefits to the battery industry in automotive sector and augment the performance and growth of energy storage industry in India.

Daramic has become the first major company to invest in building the infrastructure to manufacture and locally supply PE battery separators in India.
