New plants

GSFC’s Melamine plant is fully operational


24 April 2019

GSFC (India) and Casale SA (Switzerland) are pleased to announce that GSFC’s 40’000 MT/y new melamine plant in Vadodara (India), based on Casale’s Low Energy Melamine (LEM®) technology, has now smoothly reached its design capacity, with specific consumptions in line with the expectations and consistently delivering a premium quality product, in terms of colour and purity. The plant achieved the mechanical completion early in January this year and was thereafter immediately commissioned. Casale’s LEM® technology was originally acquired from Borealis in 2013 and quickly reached a prominent position in the melamine market as shown by 3 contracts already awarded since then. GSFC’s melamine plant is the first one which goes on stream. Gujarat State Fertilizer and Chemicals (GSFC), with operations in Vadadara (India), is a leading producer or caprolactam, urea, other fertilizers, methanol and the only one of melamine in India, with 3 plants on the same site.
