Research And Development
At ICL, we firmly believe that applied R&D is the only way forward towards achieving optimization, conservation and economizing of our existing process conditions. It also opens door in new vistas for gaining diversity in our production line based on utilization of process waste as well as surplus streams.
R&D activity has always been a hallmark of ICL in all three phases of its existence namely
- Post commissioning (i.e.) the initial private era (1964-1971)
- The state enterprise era (1971 – 1995)
- The post Privatization era (1995-to date)
R & D Phases
Phase 1 – Post Commissioning Era (1964 – 1971)
During the initial period R&D work was confined to in-process development and refinement, utilization of waste streams and utilization of surplus chlorine. The R&D Section
Phase 2 – State Enterprise Era (1971 – 1995)
During this era, products like Sodium Hypochlorite, Bleaching Earth and Zinc Sulphate were researched upon from lab scale abinitio, to pilot plant stage and ultimately
Phase 3 – Post Privatization Era (1995 – Todate)
The dawn of the post privatization era brought with it a new dimensional approach together with renewed devotion, resolve and commitment towards rapid industrial growth.
