Background

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.[1][2]

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.[3][4]

The public hearing was held January 1, 2021.[5] The Final Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was prepared in April 2021.[6][7][8]

The expansion appeared permitted by the State EIA authority for Gujarat in December 2021.[9] As of January 2023, it was unknown if construction had began or not.
