Hindalco produces LME grade copper cathodes, continuous cast copper rods in various sizes, and precious metals like gold and silver. Hindalco is one of the major manufacturers of 19.6mm diameter copper rods, which is used for railway electrification. The co-product, sulphuric acid, is partly utilised to produce phosphoric acid and fertilisers like di-ammonium phosphate (DAP). Birla Copper's brands, Birla Copper and Birla Copper II, are recognized for their high purity and consistent quality in the domestic as well as global markets. Birla Copper is an ISO 9001, 14001, 27001, 50001 and OHSAS 18001 certified company, registered on the London Metal Exchange as Grade-A copper brand, and certified as a Star Trading House having labs for chemical, mechanical and electrical testing accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Laboratories (NABL).
Hindalco produces di-ammonium phosphate (DAP) fertiliser. It is the most popular phosphatic fertiliser because of its high nutrient content and good physical properties. The composition of DAP is 18% Nitrogen and P2O5 46%. Within the same facility, Hindalco can also produce nitrogen phosphorus potassium (NPK) complexes as value-added downstream products. It can manufacture NPK complexes such as 10:26:26, 12:32:16 and 20:20:0. Hindalco's DAP plant went on-stream in the year 2000, and has a capacity of 400,000 TPA. Phosphoric acid is produced at Hindalco's phosphoric acid plant by the chemical reaction of sulphuric acid (generated as by-product from copper smelting process) and rock phosphate (imported). At the DAP plant, phosphoric acid and ammonia are reacted to form DAP. Imported potash is used to produce the NPK complexes. The products are marketed under the well-known brand Birla Balwan, a name that commands preference among the farmers of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Haryana and Punjab, through a vast, established network of dealers, retailers and C&F agents. Operations are carried out through both private and institutional distribution channels. The products are packed in gusseted Lyril-green 50kg PP bags, and are transported to various destinations by rail and road, stored and then delivered to dealers, retailers, co-operative societies, and other customers in various marketing regions. The customers are serviced through an experienced and qualified marketing team across all the seven states. Marketing, service-related activities, and farmer/retailer meets are regularly held at customers locations by well-trained field personnel. Birla Phospho Gypsum is marketed in the agricultural field as a soil conditioner. The product contains 15-17 % sulphur, 20-22 % calcium and 1 % of P2O5. It is an economical input that adds nutrients to the soil and enhances its productivity, improvement and crop growth. Birla Phospho Gypsum is available in loose form, bulk and also in bags for convenience of handling and storage. The popular brand, Birla Vishwas, caters to the market of diversified agricultural inputs.
During Hindalco's copper production process, by-products such as sulphuric acid and copper slag are formed. Sulphuric acid is partly converted into phosphoric acid, which is then made to react with ammonia to make di-ammonium phosphate (DAP) fertiliser. During the process of making phosphoric acid, phosphogypsum and hydrofluosilicic acid (HFA) are formed. HFA is partly utilised to make aluminium fluoride, and rest is sold in the market. Sulphuric acid Hindalco produces sulphuric acid of IS 266/1993 technical grade. The sulphuric acid plants use the double contact double absorption (DCDA) process, and are designed by Monsanto Envirochem (USA). Phosphoric acid Hindalco's phosphoric acid plant is based on the Prayon Mark IV dihydrate technology provided by SNC Lavalin (Belgium). Phosphogypsum Phosphogypsum is a by-product of Hindalco's phosphoric acid plant. Copper slag (iron silicate) Copper slag is produced during the smelting process at Hindalco's copper smelter located at Dahej. Aluminium fluoride: Hindalco produces aluminium fluoride by reacting HFA (a by-product of the phosphoric acid plant) with aluminium hydroxide (from Hindalc's aluminium manufacturing facilities).
Hindalco manufactures coarse alumina hydrate, metallurgical alumina, special alumina and alumina hydrate. The chemicals business focuses on special alumina and alumina hydrates, which are products of in-house technological innovation by our Research & Development team at Hindalco Innovation Centre-Alumina(HIC-A). This research centre is recognised by the Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR), Government of India. The chemicals business serves a wide range of customers across 32 countries around the world with special alumina and alumina hydrates. Alumina hydrates find use in applications like Ã¢?? alum, poly aluminium chloride (PAC), zeolites, aluminium fluoride, and as fire-retardant filler in polymer composites. Our special alumina finds a good suit in applications like refractory, ceramics, polishing compounds, abrasives and glass.
