We are the largest caustic soda producers in India with significant integration and a capacity of 1,147 KTPA. Our largest end-consumers are alumina, textiles, and others. Our net sales in Caustic Soda surpassed the 1-million-tonne mark during the year - a new benchmark set by any Indian company.
During the year, we acquired the Chlor-Alkali facility of KPR Industries at Balabhadrapuram in Andhra Pradesh.
Our total Caustic Soda capacities are set to increase from 1,147 KTPA to 1,457 KTPA by FY21.
We are also making investments in expanding production of chlorine value-added products. Chlorine, a chemical produced as a by-product during production of caustic soda, will drive the overall growth of the business.
