  1. The project should go to any one of the pioneers like foster wheeler or Bechtel. Korean companies may mess up the project, due to its complexity.

  2. I have more than 10 years of experience in CARBON BLACK manufacturing process operation.

    I wish to work with takree and as well with samsung for the said project…



    1. Thank you Sir for your information.
