Ducon Infratech wins pollution controller order from Exide unit

Information technology firm Ducon Infratechnologies Ltd said it received an order to supply a pollution control system at the greenfield lead metal recycling and refining project of Chloride Metals Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Exide Industries Ltd and one of India’s largest secondary lead smelter and production company, at Haldia in West Bengal.

The pollution control system, known as flue-gas desulphurization (FGD), comprises a set of technologies used to remove sulphur dioxide from exhaust flue gases of fossil-fuel power plants, and from other emissions of other sulphur oxide emitting processes like trash incineration.

The value of the project has not been revealed by the company.

Under the project, secured on a turnkey basis, Ducon will provide a complete air pollution control package, including a Lime FGD system, along with a particulate control system which will allow Chloride Metals Ltd to comply with latest global emission standards.

Turnkey or a turnkey project is a type of project that is constructed so that it can be sold to any buyer as a completed product. This is contrasted with build to order, where the constructor builds an item to the buyer’s exact specifications, or when an incomplete product is sold with the assumption that the buyer would complete it.

Chloride Metals Ltd is engaged in manufacturing and supplying lead and lead Alloys to customers like Exide Industries Ltd, Amara Raja Batteries Ltd Tudor India Ltd, Cable Corporation of India Ltd and others.

“The company continues to be actively involved in bidding on both power plant size and industrial size FGD projects, and remains hopeful to win some of these projects as and when they are decided”, said Ducon.
