Gujarat Alkalies & Chemicals Limited, the flag bearer company in Chlor-Alkali Industries, has taken up Hydrogen Peroxide Expansion Project at its Dahej Complex to increase the capacity by 14000 TPA (on 100% basis) at an investment of Rs. 98 Crores. The company had commissioned its first Hydrogen Peroxide plant in 1996 at Baroda and second plant at Dahej in 2007.

The total existing capacity of both plants is 25080 MTA which shall go up to 39080 MTA (on 100% basis). The Technology for the project has been tied up with M/s. Chematur Engineering AB, Sweden, who had given technical know how & basic engineering for company's Hydrogen Peroxide Plant of Dahej Complex. After commissioning of expansion project, GACL will be the largest producer of Hydrogen Peroxide in the Country.

The present production capacity of Hydrogen Peroxide in the country is about 80000 MTA (on 100% basis). National Peroxide, Asian Peroxide & Hindustan Organics are the others players. The present production capacity of the country is not adequate to meet the country's requirement and Hydrogen Peroxide is being imported.

GACL is the largest producer of Caustic Soda in the Country & Hydrogen is co-product from its Caustic Soda Plant.The project is for value addition of the Hydrogen Gas and the project shall utilize the Hydrogen Gas from its Caustic Soda Plant. The existing facilities will also be utilized to make available other inputs & utilities for the expansion project. It will give advantage of reduction in the production cost of Hydrogen Peroxide.

Hydrogen Peroxide is an environment friendly product as it decomposes to water & oxygen. Hydrogen Peroxide finds application as bleaching agent in Paper, Pulp, Textile industries. It also finds application as antiseptic agent in pharmaceutical, in treatment of industrial waste as well as for raw material for various organic & inorganic chemicals. Recently new application is developed for Hydrogen Peroxide in the effluent treatment of various organic wastes of refineries and other chemical Industries.

It is expected that the demand of Hydrogen Peroxide will grow by more than 10% per annum. The company expects good return on the investment. The project is expected to be on stream during Financial Year 2010-11.

GACL is considering putting up various new / expansion projects within the next three years at an investment of Rs. 2600 Crores and this project is one out of these projects.
