Deepak Fertilisers’ Rs 190 crore expansion plan gets EC

Environment clearance has been granted to Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corporation for expansion of its fertiliser facilities in Raigad district of Maharashtra, which will be done at an investment of Rs 190 crore.

An official document said the Union environment ministry has issued the clearance to the company’s proposal after taking into account the recommendations of a panel of experts.

However, the green clearance has been given with some riders. According to the proposal, the company wants to increase the fertilisers production capacity from the existing 6 lakh tonnes per annum (TPA) to 11.25 lakh TPA.

This would involve increasing production capacity of multiple grade of NPK fertiliser from 6 lakh TPA to 8 lakh TPA and continue production of 3,25,000 tonnes of Ammonium Nitro Phosphate per annum with the existing ANP plant.
