The Atul power station is a 56 MW captive power station at a chemical manufacturing complex. The exact fuel type and unit breakdown of the power station are uncertain. The power station may involve a 34 MW unit and a 22 MW unit burning coal and diesel.[3][4]

In January 2020, Atul Limited submitted a proposal to expand the plant with a 50 MW coal unit. Coal would be sourced both domestically and imported. Atul is part of the Lalbhai Group of Industries.[5][6]

The public hearing was held January 1, 2021.[7] The Final Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was prepared in April 2021.[8][9][10]

The expansion appeared permitted by the State EIA authority for Gujarat in December 2021.[11] A cover letter dated March 22, 2022 from a Member Secretary of SEIAA Gujarat provided more details.[12]

Company reports in 2022 and 2023 noted that Atul owned a 50 MW captive power station, which presumably referred to the original 34 and 26 WM units.[13][14] A July 2023 report of Atul's annual meeting noted that Atul Products would "commission a 300 MT per day caustic chlorine plant (with a 50 MW power plant)" in the same quarter (Q3 2023).[15] A November 2023 report indicated that the 50 MW power station was still being set up.[16]

According to Lakshmishree's "Stock Market Today," Atul Products began operating its new caustic plant and 50 MW power plant on January 11, 2024.[17]
