Power sector

Power has been universally recognised as one of the most important inputs for economic growth and human development. There is a strong two-way relationship between economic development and energy consumption. India has been traditionally dependent on thermal power, which constitutes about 63% of the current capacity. The balance is contributed by hydroelectric (25%), nuclear (3%), and renewable (9%) energy sources. The overall power generation in the country increased from 704.469 billion units in 2007-08 to around 723.794 billion units in 2008-09 (2.74% growth).The growth was significant for the hydro (8.38%) and thermal (5.57%) sectors while nuclear power generation declined 12.3%. Himadri is emerging as separate power division. A power plant of 15 MW is being set up with green and clean energy. The power plants are eligible to carbon credits.

Paints and coatings

Carbon black is a key raw material that enhances the performance of rubber, inks and paints. Himadri produces carbon black engineered to meet the needs of these end-market applications. Himadriís carbon black can be used in a wide variety of coating applications. Although its definition is simple, a coating can be sophisticated in terms of composition, curing chemistry and application performance. Industrial carbon blacks are used in a variety of applications, including printing inks, toners, coatings, paper and building products. Purposes for using industrial carbon black include pigmentary, electrical, UV absorption and theological properties.

Plastics

The Company has designed different carbon black varieties for various plastics applications. The range of applications is diverse but it is not limited to basic colour concentrates for pigmentation, electrostatic dissipation, fibres, film, pipe, UV protection/stabilisation and wire and cable compounds.

Dyestuff Sector

Himadri produces naphthalene which is used in products of dye intermediates such as H-Acid, Beta Napthol and reactive dispersing dyes. We use these dyes as colours in our everyday life.
