Note from the Chairman


We believe in green

Welcome to the India Glycols website.

India Glycols is a leading public listed company that manufactures bulk, specialty and performance chemicals and natural gums, spirits and nutraceuticals. It is an ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 22000 certified company.

Our company holds the distinction of being the only green petrochemical company of its kind. It is the first and only company in the world to have commercialised the production of ethylene oxide, its derivatives and glycols from renewable agricultural resources, namely molasses or sugar cane.

We believe in green. Not only have we adopted several green technologies, we continuously work to evolve new green methods, materials, innovative technologies and systems to meet the specific requirements of global clients.

Our aim is to be at the forefront of efforts against global threats such as global warming, stratospheric ozone depletion, resource depletion, bioaccumulation and persistent chemicals.

To do this, we have implemented several green methodologies, including:

New solutions and products made via the green route, ie, from raw materials that are renewable resources
Novel technologies, including super critical technology for nutraceuticals. We use super critical carbon dioxide as a green solvent during extraction processes
Novel catalysts and process improvements
Separation and post-refining technologies
Energy-efficient, renewable energy and water conservation projects
A focus on improving sustainability, by looking at energy usage, carbon footprints and life cycle assessment of products

At India Glycols, we work towards lowering our impact on the planet by reducing:

Use of raw materials and non-renewable resources (for instance, by recycling carbon dioxide used as a solvent)
Product toxicity
Wastes and emissions during manufacture
Risk and hazards from manufacturing
Environmental impact of products

Even our administrative processes are green; we have implemented SAP ERP solutions to achieve paperless work and minimise time frames and paper usage.

We believe that the green movement is on the rise with more and more people joining it each year. We are proud of being a green petrochemical company with innovative technologies and a vision of long-term sustainability.

“India Glycols relies on breakthroughs in green technologies. "
