Fertiliser Cooperative Ltd, country's largest fertilizer manufacture in
cooperative sector, has registered a record production during the 2009-10
financial year. In the fiscal that
has passed by, the Paradip-based IFFCO plant, since its acquisition from a
sick private ownership on 2005, recorded the highest ever fertilizer
production to the tune of 15,00,000 MT, according to M R Patel, Executive
Director, IFFCO Paradip unit. In a
major turnaround, the fertilizer unit has also registered impressive growth
in Phosphoric Acid and Sulphuric Acid production in 2009-10 fiscal Patel
claimed. While 4,62,000 MT
phosphoric acid was produced at the plant, the unit recorded 14,28,290 MT
Sulphuric Acid production, he said.
Listing out the achievement made by the cooperative fertilizer manufacturing
unit, Patel informed that IFFCO Paradip has generated 3,12,420 MWH of Power
in the in its captive power plant during financial year 2009-10. At a time
when the state is starved of power resources, IFFCO has come to the need of
the state by supplying 24,778 MWH power.
The financial year that has gone by is an eventful one with the plant
bagging prestigious National Energy conservation award. IFFCO, Paradip is
also the recipient of ‘improvement in overall performance' and ‘best
technical innovation' awards from fertilizer association of India.
The IFFCO Paradip is sticking to industrial safety standards and its
pollution control mechanism is one of best in fertilizer sectors in the
country, Patel claimed. But contrary to claims, the fertilizer-manufacturing unit is now
faced with accusation of discharge of toxic gaseous substances in the air
affecting residents of at least three GPs in Kendrapara district.
Kendrapara district administration has ordered an inquiry into the alleged
emission of toxic gas in the air. The PRI members of Ramnagar, Kharinasi and
Barakanda GPs located at the close periphery of the fertilizer plant had
recently drawn the attention of district administration alleging that toxic
emission is causing health hazard in their localities.
January 2009 - The Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Ltd (IFFCO) will increase production of diammonium phosphate (DAP) by up to 3 million t/a at their recently revamped plant in Paradeep, to address concerns over shortages of the fertilizer in the country, according to The Hindi Business Line. After acquiring the Paradeep plant from Oswal Chemicals and Fertilisers Ltd in 2005, IFFCO spent INR10 billion ($US200 million) on revamping the facility, and by 2007/2008 the plant was producing approximately 860,000 t/a of DAP/NPK. Further increases in production will occur over the next few years. (1)
