Other highlights of the year 2017-18, are as under:

Energy Saving Project:
Following Energy Saving schemes have been implemented in IFFCO Aonla-I & IFFCO Aonla-II:

Ammonia-I:

1. Conversion of existing GV solution based CO2 removal system to aMDEA solution based CO2 removal system.

2. Revamp of Synthesis Gas Compressor involving replacement of HP case and LP case barrels by new barrels for increase in efficiency.

3. New Ammonia wash system in Synthesis Gas Compressor 2nd stage discharge to remove oxygenated compounds from synthesis gas and sending 3rd stage discharge directly to re-circulator stage discharge.

4. Replacement of existing Water Cooler using indirectly cooled DM water as cooling medium for cooling of synthesis gas with new heat exchanger using cooling water as cooling medium.

5. of Steam Super Heater at downstream of High Temperature Shift Converter in place of waste heat boiler.

6. Replacement of existing finned type Combustion Air Pre-heater with new Plate type Combustion Air Pre-heater of higher surface area.

7. Replacement of Existing BFW Pre-heater in synthesis loop with a new BFW Pre-heater with higher surface area.

Urea-I:

1. Replacement of existing CO2 Compressors with new higher efficiency compressors.

2. Installation of New ammonia Pre-heaters in 11 unit & 21 unit.

3. Installation of Vapour Absorption Machine.

Ammonia-II:
