Our Company

Welcome to Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals Limited (GACL): Elevating Industrial and Economic Growth in India and Enriching “Atmanirbhar Bharat”.

Roots in Gujarat, Nourishing India

GACL, a leader in the Chlor-Alkali sector, was established in 1973 in Vadodara, the cultural city of Gujarat. GACL has emerged as a shining beacon of self-reliance and an indispensable contributor to the industrial and economic growth of Gujarat and India as a whole. Our journey, nurtured under the auspices of the Government of Gujarat, has been marked by an unwavering dedication to cutting-edge technology, pioneering research and development, and strategic diversification.

We prioritize these values to ensure that our business is not only successful but also contributes positively to society and the environment.

We firmly believe that sustainable business practices and responsible corporate citizenship are fundamental to crafting a resilient and principled enterprise. Join us in our pursuit of a more sustainable future, where our commitment to fostering a greener world and uplifting society aligns harmoniously with our vision for an empowered and self-reliant nation – an “Atmanirbhar Bharat.”

A Leader in Caustic Soda Industry

Today, GACL stands tall as one of the country’s largest caustic soda manufacturers, commanding over 20% of the domestic market. Our remarkable growth journey, from a modest initial capacity of 37,425 Tonnes Per Annum, has now culminated in a towering capacity of 8,52,400 Tonnes Per Annum (Including our subsidiary Company). We operate across four expansive complexes in Vadodara and Dahej, offering an extensive product portfolio of over 35 diverse products.

Commitment to National Prosperity

Our commitment to the nation’s prosperity is unyielding. In collaboration with the CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad, we have achieved a significant milestone by developing an eco-friendly process for producing the super-specialty chemical, Hydrazine Hydrate (H6N2O). This pioneering accomplishment has garnered patents from both the Government of India and the United States. Leveraging this technology, we have set up a 10,000 MTA Hydrazine Hydrate commercial-scale plant at our Dahej unit, making us India’s first manufacturer of this vital chemical. This development not only reduces our reliance on imports but also resonates with the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister towards “Atmanirbhar Bharat.”

A Visionary Approach

With an unwavering focus on the future, we are actively exploring the manufacturing of various Chlorine-based products to optimize Caustic Soda production while maintaining our leadership in Chlor-Alkali and downstream products. Furthermore, we are diligently pursuing opportunities to establish plants for producing value-added products with applications in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, personal care products, detergents, epoxy resins, and other promising fields.

Our journey is a testament to innovation, self-sufficiency, and an enduring commitment to fostering industrial and economic growth in India, while actively contributing to the vision of an “Atmanirbhar Bharat.” Join us in our mission to shape a brighter, more self-reliant future.
