"We will be setting up a knowledge centre at Sankrail (in Howrah district) to run different courses on plastic processing. Globsyn will impart training to the students to help them get job in the country's plastic processing industry," IPF Knowledge Centre Chairman Amar Seth said.
Seth said that the construction work for the project was likely to start from October this year.
The National Skill Development Council (NSDC) would provide certificates for the courses.
Total investment for the project would be INR25 crore, and in the first phase, around INR10 crore would be spent.
The knowledge centre will be coming up on a 1.02 acres of land at Sankrail.
"When the centre will be working full fledged, it would have a capacity to impact training to about 3000 students per year," Seth informed.
Meanwhile, IPF said that it will organise the sixth International Exhibition on plastics from October 5 in Kolkata.
"The surplus money to be raised from this year's exhibition will be used in setting up of the Knowledge Centre," IPF Executive Secretary Jayanta Bandyopadhyay said.
