Chemicals & Fertilizers

The Jay Shree Chemicals & Fertilizers Factory is located on the eastern bank of the Hooghly River, approximately one kilometre away from B.T. Road in Khardah, West Bengal, India. It was established in 1961 and initially focused on manufacturing Sulphuric Acid and Single Superphosphate, which we market under our brand name “Annapurna.”

Over the years, the company has kept up with technological advancements in its industry and continuously upgraded its plants through revamping and modernisation efforts. The manufacturing process of Sulphuric Acid was modified to incorporate the latest DCDA technology, resulting in lower emissions and increased production capacity from 75 TPD to 100 TPD.

Similarly, both the SSP plants and Granulated Fertilizer Plant were revamped to reduce emissions and improve productivity. Energy conservation measures have been implemented by installing a Turbo-Alternator that utilises surplus steam from the Sulphuric Acid plants. In 2005, the back-pressure type turbine was replaced with a fully condensing type turbine, leading to the full condensation and recycling of exhaust steam. This not only generates more power but also reduces the consumption of treated water and associated chemicals.

To meet the environmental standards set by the West Bengal Pollution Control Board for liquid effluents, a comprehensive Effluent Treatment Plant was installed in 1991. Inside the factory premises, a green belt has been created by planting a sufficient number of saplings during the rainy season, contributing to an improved environment both within and outside the factory. The company regularly monitors and reports data on liquid effluents, ambient air quality, stack emissions, and other relevant factors to the appropriate governmental bodies.

Annual environmental audits are conducted, and reports are submitted to the relevant statutory bodies. In recognition of our efforts, our Single Superphosphate Plant Category received the esteemed “Environmental Protection Award” for the year 1999-2000 from the Fertiliser Association of India, presented by the Honourable Minister for Fertilisers, Government of India.

The company maintains a strict and periodically reviewed Quality Control System to ensure the highest standards are met.
