Chlorates Division


Product and Quality

The facility produces sodium chlorate crystals and hydrogen gas which conform to the Bureau of Indian Standards and to international specifications. As the product is an important substitute, it is not only a major boost for Indian industry, but also commands significant market potential, especially in the paper and pulp industries.

As hydrogen is produced as a part of the production process, it is gainfully used in the Ongole facility rather than simply disposed of. This green fuel can be used in multiple ways or simply vented out of the system, as it happens often in many facilities. In the Ongole plant, it is instead utilised as part of the hot water generator, chiller plant VAM and hot air generator processes.

Using eco-friendly processes, the plant manufactures sodium chlorate crystals to extremely high quality standards.
