MoEF Committee gave environmental clearance for Ramagundam Urea plant

Sep 24, 2015 17:55 IST

A committee under the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) on 24 September 2015 gave environmental clearance for the proposed 5465 crore fertiliser plant in Ramagundam, Telangana.

Earlier in January 2015, National Fertilizers Limited (NFL), Engineers India Limited (EIL) and Fertilizer Corporation of India (FCIL) together formed a joint venture company (JVC) for setting up two new Ammonia and Urea plants at the existing site of Ramagundam Fertilizer plant.

The JVC is named as Ramagundam Fertilizers and Chemicals Limited. The gas-based plant will have the capacity to produce 1.1 million tonnes of urea per annum. It is expected to be commissioned in 2018-19.

This plant, which became obsolete for the past decade, was originally established as a coal-based plant. Subsequently, the plant could not survive due to shortage of raw material such as Phosphate.
