IFFCO Production Unit

Kalol (Gujarat)

kalol kalol

IFFCO’s Mother Plant

IFFCO’s first Urea & Ammonia production Facility, Kalol Production unit was commissioned in 1974 with a production capacity of 910 MTPD of Ammonia & 1200 MTPD of Urea. Over the last 4 decades, IFFCO Kalol Production unit has expanded & reinvented to stay at par with the modern production units both in terms of production capacity as well as the technology. Today IFFCO Kalol plant has a production capacity of 1100 MTPD of Ammonia and 1650 MTPD of Urea.

Urea plant with a design capacity of 1200 MTPD was commissioned on 31st January, 1975 based on the technology from M/s Stamicarbon BV, Netherland.

Ammonia plant with a design capacity of 910 MTPD was commissioned on 5th November, 1974 based on the technology from M/s Kellogg, USA.
Year 1975

Capacity Enhancement Project was commissioned on 29th August, 1997 and the design production capacity of Kalol unit increased to 1100 MTPD of Ammonia & 1650 MTPD of Urea.

Year 1997

The Energy Savings Project were implemented in two phases. ESP Phase-1 got completed on June 30, 2005 and ESP Phase-2 on May 17, 2006. Net energy savings achieved was 0.837 Gcal/ T of Ammonia.

Year 2005 - 2006

Commenced 100% production of Neem Coated Urea from January, 2015 onwards.

Year 2015

The Energy Savings Project Phase-3 was implemented & schemes were adopted in both Ammonia and Urea Plants. Net energy savings achieved was 0.365 Gcal/ MT of Ammonia and 0.297 Gcal/MT of Urea. M/s Casale S.A., Switzerland was Basic Engineering Consultant and M/s Projects and Development India Limited, Noida was Detailed Engineering Consultant.

Year 2015 - 2017

Commissioned a pilot plant of Diesel Exhaust Fluid with capacity of 5 KLPH. Commercial Production commenced on 2nd September 2019.

Year 2019

Other Initiative

Energy Saving Project (ESP) at Kalol

A number of upgrades & schemes have been implemented at the Kalol plant recently (2016 – 18) in an effort to make it more energy efficient:

Ammonia Plant

  • New Secondary Reformer Burner.
  • Liner Replacement of primary waste heat boilers (101-CA/B) with improved material of construction (MOC).
  • Hydro De-Sulphurization of feed gas in place of activated carbon.
  • New Process Air-Steam Coil with improved Material of construction (MOC).
  • New single steam turbine (103-JT) for Syn Gas Compressor in place of two turbines.
  • New Methanator Exit Cooler (115-C) with better design.
  • MP Process Condensate Stripper in place LP Process condensate Stripper.
  • Ammonia recovery from Syn Loop of LP Flash off gases.
  • New Low Temperature HP steam superheat coil with higher area for better heat recovery.

Urea Plant

  • High Efficiency Tray (HET) in Urea Reactor.
  • VAM package for CO2 cooling.
  • New CO2 Cooler in place of direct contact cooler.
  • HP Ammonia Preheater (H 1250).
  • HP Split Flow Loop and New High Pressure Carbamate Condenser (HPCC).
  • HP Carbamate Ejector in HP Loop.
  • New Second stage Evaporator Heat Exchanger with higher area.

Expansion Project phase II
