Astrica Laboratories is implementing a synthetic organic chemicals manufacturing project in dist. Medak, Telangana.

March 28, 2015


Status: Under Implementation

Promoter: Astrica Laboratories

Project: Setting up of a 240 TPA synthetic organic chemicals manufacturing project

Location: Ananthsagar Village, dist. Medak, Telangana

Project Cost: Rs. 78.8 million.

Environmental Consultant: Team Labs & Consultants

Project Details: The project will come up on 6.97 acres. According to MoEF sources, it is proposed to treat all HTDS effluent in stripper followed by MEE and ATFD. All LTDS effluent including domestic effluent shall be treated in biological treatment followed by RO system. RO rejects sent to MEE and permeate is used for cooling towers as make up. Solid wastes are generated from the process, solvent distillation, collection/neutralization tank, waste oil from DG sets, used batteries from DG sets. The ash from boiler is sold to brick manufacturers. The solid wastes; evaporation salts, wastes from the process in inorganic form i.e., process salts and filtration aids shall be disposed to the TSDF, while the hazardous wastes of organic nature i.e., distillation residues shall be disposed to authorized cement units and other wastes like used oil and used batteries shall be sent to authorized recyclers. The sludge from treatment plant shall be sent to TSDF. The basic technology involved in the manufacturing of bulk drugs is the process kettles, heat exchangers, centrifuges, and storage tanks. To support the process, equipment boilers, chilling plants, cooling towers, etc. are required. All the above equipment can be sourced indigenously.

Current Status: 80% of civil work has been completed. Remaining 20% civil work is in progress. The project is scheduled for completion in December 2015.

2) New Amine Regeneration Unit (ARU)

3) Sour Water Stripper Unit (SWS) to treat additional sour water generated from DHT.

4) Revamp of all four SRU trains to meet the additional acid gas processing.

5) New Gas Turbine (GT) with Heat Recovery and Steam Generator (HRSG) for additional power and steam requirements.

Implementation of this project will enable Mumbai refinery to increase BS-IV HSD production from 3.5 MTPA to 5.9 MTPA. Proposed DHT unit will be installed in existing tank farm area comprising of tanks 501, 502, 503, 504 & 508. The above tanks will be removed after reallocation of existing tanks on these services (Plot Area of 52 x 203 meters approx.). Power and steam requirement will be met from proposed new Gas Turbine (GT) combined with Heat Recovery and Steam Generator (HRSG) system. A debt to equity ratio of 1.5:1 is considered.

Current Status: Removal space clearance work is in progress. The project is waiting for environmental clearance. Work on the project is expected to commence in July 2015 and is planned forh 2017. completion in Marc
