Descon Oxychem Limited (DOL) has recently undertaken a decision to increase the production capacity of their existing Hydrogen Peroxide (HP) manufacturing facility located in Lahore. Since starting production in December 2008, DOL has grown rapidly, becoming Pakistan's market leader in HP and currently the largest manufacturer of HP in the country; supplying consistently to its customers in many industries including textile, food, beverages and mining.
HP producers in Pakistan contribute approximately USD 24 million per annum in foreign exchange savings. Savings in foreign exchange will increase as DOLs new capacity comes on line. Keeping in mind the future market demand, the Company has decided to increase production capacity by 25%, ensuring that supply grows with the demand pattern of the industries the Company serves.
DOL's name plate capacity at their Lahore facility at the time of commencement of production was 84 Metric Tons (MT) per day. Subsequently the Company was able to debottleneck the plant and improve the chemistry that lead to the increase in capacity to 94 MT/day. After completing the announced expansion, DOL will be able to increase their plant's production capacity to 120 MT/day.
Altern Energy Limited (AEL) and Descon Power Solutions (DPS) held their Annual Employee Function on the 25th of April 2018, with all employees at the Altern Energy plant in Fateh Jang.
