IFFCO’s Second Ammonia & Urea Production Complex
IFFCO Phulpur Unit manufactures Ammonia and Urea and commissioned its first unit in the year 1980 with a production capacity of 900 MTPD of Ammonia & 1500 MTPD of Urea. Over the years, Phulpur plant has adopted new & more energy efficient technologies to increase production capacity while reducing the energy consumption. Today IFFCO Phulpur plants has two Units with a combined production capacity of 2955 MTPD of Ammonia & 5145 MTPD of Urea.
Foundation stone laid by former PM Mrs. Indira Gandhi on 16th Jan.
Urea plant with a production capacity of 1500 MTPD was commissioned on 15th October 1980. Technology licensed from Snamprogetti, Italy.
Urea-II plant with a design capacity of 2200 MTPD was commissioned on 31st October, 1997 based on the technology from M/s Snamprogetti, Italy.
Energy Savings Project was implemented in two phases in Ammonia-I and Ammonia-II plants. Basic Engineering Consultant was M/s Haldor Topsoe, Denmark and Detail Engineering Consultant was M/s PDIL, Noida. Energy savings achieved in GTR was 0.695 Gcal/MT for Ammonia-I plant and 0.157 Gcal/MT for Ammonia-II plant.
Carbon Dioxide recovery unit with capacity of 450 MTPD was installed in December, 2006 making IFFCO first in the country to adopt this technology to recover CO2 from Primary Reformer Exhaust Flue Gas in the Urea Industry.
Capacity Enhancement Project were undertaken in Phulpur-I and Phulpur-II Units.
Energy Savings Project Phase –III were undertaken in Phulpur-I and Phulpur-II Units. Energy savings achieved in GTR was 0.935 Gcal/MT of Urea for Phulpur-I Unit & 0.386 Gcal/MT of Urea for Phulpur-II Unit. Basic Engineering Consultant was M/s Casale, Switzerland and Detail Engineering Consultant was M/s PDIL, Noida.
