INEOS Electrochemical Solutions has today announced that it has been selected by Chemfab Alkalis Karaikal Limited (CAKL), a newly formed Wholly owned Subsidiary of Chemfab Alkalis Limited (CCAL), to supply chlor-alkali electrolysis technology for their prestigious new production facility in India.

CAKL will establish a new chlor-alkali plant in Karaikal, South India. The initial caustic soda capacity of 250 TPD will be installed at the 65 acres development and will be expandable to 1000 TPD in phases. The first phase of the project will be commissioned in mid-2024.
