Opposing PVC, opposing IFC

17 September 2002

The IFC is considering a US$20 million funding proposal for a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant in an industrial estate in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu. Corporate Watch charges that “the process has been marred by irregularities, behind-the-scenes dealings and a lack of transparency. Local communities already suffer health problems and PVC is a known carcinogen”. Villagers have succeeded in getting the loan decision delayed but the IFC says it still wants to fund the project as PVC pipes are a priority for developing India’s water infrastructure.
