Navin  Fluorine  International (NFIL), one of India’s largest speciality fluorochemicals manufacturers, is to spend about $15 million to increase fluorination capacity fivefold at its site in Dewas in order to meet growing demand for fluorinated intermediates and building blocks for use in pharmaceutical and agrochemical intermediates. This will create what the company believes to be the worlds’ largest SF4 fluorination facility.

NFIL added that, although Dewas is a cGMP, zero liquid discharge site and one of a small number of cGMPcertified fluorination facilities in India, the expansion “is intended to support all aspects of NFIL’s cGMP and non-cGMP manufacturing capabilities.” As well as this expansion, the company will extend its R&D laboratories at Dewas and add new warehousing. The primary function of the expanded facility will be to allow continued support for customer projects as they move from later stage development into commercial production.
