With growing business volumes in the evolving market of water soluble polymers in India and abroad, an immediate need for backward integration emerged. A successful project has been commissioned as scheduled which is first of its kind in India as far as bio catalyst enzyme process is concerned. After in house use, a handsome amount of liquid acrylamide also sold in Indian market to a few but major players on a strategic front.
Further as a signature to cutting edge technology, the plant has been equipped with Yokogawa ProSafe DCS systems which fulfills the need for safety of employees and environment to utmost and auto filling PLC system for packing of product into various packings to suit customer requirement to assure accurate quantum. This system also avoids direct human interference with acrylamide which is otherwise a carcinogenic on long standing exposures.
Acrylamide & its copolymers are widely used in various day to day applications. The major being water treatment segment (both industrial waste & drinking water). The next major industry being EOR (enhanced oil recovery) in Crude Extraction.
SNF believes in sustainable business growth with an emphasis on preservation of natural resources, hence it has jointly worked with MRC to counter the traditional copper catalyst process and developed a new enzymatic pathway for production of acrylamide which is environmental friendly, copper free, ultra-pure monomer without traces of dimers & trimers.
