Infrastructure At Atul
Atul Ltd has made significant contributions to the development of infrastructure in Atul and nearby villages. The Company has already built over 1000 houses, 2 schools, a medical centre, a sports complex, an open air theatre and a community centre.
Atul Ltd is self-sufficient in its requirement of electricity achieved through three state-of-the-art captive power plants. The Company is also in the process of renewing its fifty year water agreement with the government of Gujarat.
Captive Power Generation
Atul Complex is self sufficient in meeting continuous and uninterrupted steam demand for all its chemical manufacturing processes and it also meets more than 95% of electricity demand for its housing colonies.
At Atul Complex, there are three captive power plants consisting of coal/oil fired boilers and turbo generator sets having capacity ranging from 2 MW to 18 MW. Over and above this, diesel generator sets have been installed so as to facilitate the start up from total black out
All boilers and power generation sets have been designed to meet the stringent pollution norms as fixed by Gujarat Pollution Control Board.
The industrial effluent is fully treated in a well-designed state of art effluent treatment plant. The industrial effluent is discharged through a 4 km underground pipeline for ultimate disposal into the estuarine zone of river Par. The domestic effluent is treated and disposed off in a Septic Tank / Soak Pit system.
Development efforts to minimize the generation or to recycle / reuse the effluent are a continuous process at Atul Limited. Only after exhausting all these options, the wastewater is taken to Central Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP). This CETP designed by Degremont (India) Ltd., has a capacity to treat 20,000 m3/day.
Atul has installed and commissioned four hazardous waste incinerators and these have been operating regularly. Solid, liquid as well as aqueous-organic wastes are incinerated as per the applicable norms, in these facilities.
Treatment Storage Disposal Facility (TSDF)
Atul has developed a site for disposal of solid wastes by land filling. The site was selected on the basis of a technical Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) study done by National Productivity Council (NPC). NPC also has given the detailed design of the site. On the basis of this technical EIA and the design, site for TSDF was approved by the state level committee and Gujarat Pollution Control Board.
