With this, the company’s total installed capacity now stands at 2,225 TPD in Bharuch alone, stated an official release here on Saturday.

The commissioning of this state-of-the-art project in Bharuch district solidifies DCM Shriram’s position in the chemical industry, “marking the Bharuch Chemical Complex as the single largest caustic soda facility in the country”, stated the company.
