Dec. 4, 2017
The company’s proposal is to establish a unit for manufacturing 30-odd technical grade pesticides and intermediates with a production capacity of 32,350 tonnes per annum.
An Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) on industry, set up by the environment ministry, vetted the proposal in a meeting recently.
The EAC recommended environment clearance to the proposed project subject to compliance to certain conditions, as per the minutes of the EAC meeting.
Among conditions specified, the EAC said 10 per cent of the total technical grade pesticides production should include manufacturing of bio-pesticides.
The proposed unit will be set up in an area of 20 hectare in Vagra taluk of Bharuch district.
Jubilant Life Sciences is an integrated global pharmaceutical and life sciences company.
