Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -


re­cently or­gan­ised Sem­i­nar on Op­er­a­tion and Main­te­nance of mem­brane cell plants with en­ergy con­ser­va­tion in rec­ti­fier and aux­il­iary ar­eas, of­fer­ing con­sid­er­able scope of sav­ings. The Sem­i­nar and par­al­lel ex­hi­bi­tion was held in Goa on 6th and 7th Sep, 2017.

The event was at­tended by stake hold­ers, 22 em­i­nent speak­ers, 155 del­e­gates and 65 com­pa­nies. Dur­ing the sem­i­nar ex­perts from Tech­nol­ogy Li­cen­sors shared their ex­pe­ri­ence. Olaf Kos of Thyssenkrupp ex­pressed his views on In­te­grated As­set Man­age­ment. JOC pre­sented Eco friendly and cost ef­fec­tive tech­nol­ogy ap­plied in brine treat­ment on re­moval of sul­phate, io­dine and TOC.

Telly Ha­ley of Inovyn spoke about Volt­age life­cy­cle and made pre­sen­ta­tion on Re­duc­ing Life­cy­cle costs through im­proved de­sign and op­er­a­tion. B.S. Girla, Chair­man Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee ex­pressed con­cern for low pro­tec­tion the in­dus­try gets from im­ports due to low cus­toms duty on caus­tic, low anti dump­ing du­ties and sub sided im­port du­ties un­der For­eign Trade agree­ments.

Mithal Fal De­sai, Denora, shared sodium sul­phate split­ting tech­nol­ogy- best in waste to pro­duce caus­tic with­out chlo­rine. “There is a need of caus­tic with­out chlo­rine due to sti­fled growth of Chlo­rine De­riv­a­tive In­dus­try in In­dia as chlo­rine and caus­tic soda mar­kets are rarely bal­anced, he said.

Another tech­ni­cal ses­sion cov­ered ex­pe­ri­ence shar­ing on Ad­vance­ments by Mem­brane, Elec­trode coat­ing & Tech­nol­ogy sup­pli­ers like Che­mours TM ex­pe­ri­ence of NAFION N-2050 mem­brane for chlor-al­kali process in In­dia. Nafion TM’s N-2050, a high per­form­ing mem­brane is per­form­ing well and is read­ily avail­able in all sizes and quan­ti­ties for any re­place­ment and project.

Asahi Ka­sei Cor­po­ra­tion, Ja­pan, shared their ex­pe­ri­ence on newly de­vel­oped Mem­brane Aci­plex F7001X for low power con­sump­tion.

Ini­tia­tives to im­prove process and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency on Aux­il­iary Power & Wa­ter Con­sump­tion was shared by Grasim In­dus­tries Ltd, Kar­war and Megh­mani Finechem Ltd be­sides en­ergy sav­ing and man­age­ment mea­sures taken by Siel Chem­i­cal Com­plex and DCW Ltd.

Sec­ond day fo­cussed on En­ergy sav­ing and Man­age­ment in ChlorAl­kali sec­tor. Na­tional Pro­duc­tiv­ity Coun­cil, Chen­nai spoke about Best prac­tices in chlor- al­kali in­dus­try for
