Quality Initiatives IFFCO Kalol is conscious about quality of it's inputs and products. A special quality control cell has been established with the state of the art testing facilities. All the raw materials and consumable used in the process are tested against the specifications standards laid down. Samples are drawn from various points from the urea/ammonia manufacturing process to optimise output efficiency, minimize losses and to achieve consistency in the product quality. Special care is taken for analysing packing materials and strict quality control is exercised in accepting the same. Quality control cell has got microprocessor controlled gas chromatographs, HPLC with ion analysers, ppm gas analysers, flame photometer, mettler balances, tensile strength testers and complete set of instruments for environmental and stack analysis. Quality of product at destinated points is reconfirmed by sampling and testing. Sample drawn by field staff are analysed by quality control cell an feed back is given to field staff.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION OF FINAL PRODUCT
Urea is the most important nitrogenous fertiliser in the country because of its high N content (46%N). Besides its use in the crops, it is used as a cattle feed supplement to replace a part of protein requirements. It has also numerous industrial uses notably for production of plastics. Specification of urea as per Fertiliser Control Order
1. Moisture % by weight, maximum 2. Total N % by weight (on dry basis) minimum 3. Biuret % by weight, maximum 4. Particle size
1.0 46.0 1.5 90% of the material shall pass through 2.8 mm IS sieve and not less than 80% by weight shall be retained on 1 mm IS sieve.
If urea is applied to bare soil surface significant quantities of ammonia may be lost by volatilisation because of its rapid hydrolysis to ammonium carbonate. The hydrolysis of urea can be altered by the use of several compound called urease inhibitors. These inhibitors inactivate the enzyme and thereby prevent the rapid hydrolysis of urea when it is added to soil. The rapid hydrolysis of urea in soils is also responsible for ammonia injury to seedlings if large quantities of this material placed with or too close to the seed. Proper placement of fertiliser urea with respect to seed can eliminate this difficulty

Initially the R & D work was mainly to meet the plant trouble shooting requirement and for resolving corrosion and microbilological fouling problems in cooling water system. Presently R & D laboratory is working on the production of biofertilisers using area speific bacterial strains. Over a period of time, IFFCO have worked on the following R & D projects :
Value addition product in Urea fertiliser. › Smooth change over of chromate to non chromate treatment for
cooling tower. › Use of biotechnology for improvemnt of effluent quality. › Use of urease enzyme for the sand consolidation of oil wells for
ONGC. › Corrossion and microbiological study of cooling water and MDEA
Distribution of fertilizer mainly through the cooperative system.There are 167 iffco farmers service centers.

INTRODUCTION In a modern money using economy, finance may be defined as provision of money at the time it is wanted. It is undoubtly the”life blood” of the business. The ambition plans of businessman would remain drams unless, adequate money is available. In older days the labor was more important relatively than capital. Therefore capital was not of much consequence. The industrial revolution changed the requirement of capital. All these development made the industry “capital intensive”. Therefore it is necessary to have sound capital structure.
The iffco’s finance department works quiet efficiently. Its all records are systematically recorded in the books of account

ENVIRONMENT - THE PRIME CONCERN Harmonious living with the nature is the call for the day as environmental degradation is sounding catastrophic alarms for all the living things on the earth. The message is crisp and clear. Gifts of nature needs to be preserved for our well being and for the survival of our progeny. This was and has remained the guiding principle of IFFCO. As a part of concern for environment , a number of pollution control equipment and systems were installed along with the main plant at the time of inception.
