On April 27, in Colombo, the Minister of Industries and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen said that the quality and security of Sri Lankan water supplies will be hoisted to new levels once the nation's spearheading industry supplier, Paranthan Chemicals Company (PCC) begins delivering the nation's aggregate chlorine prerequisites locally.
The chlorine supplier Paranthan Chemicals, an industry pioneer in the nation, has gained another, strengthened storeroom in standard with universal models to meet the prerequisite. Northern plants of PCC got to be inert in 1985 and therefore they have been relying upon the import of such chemicals. Further, he said that they are looking to restore the Northern production lines of Paranthan Chemicals. The Northern production lines can initiate speedily when the Elephant Pass saltern is recommenced.
The state claimed benefit creator PCC has 65 workers and reported an Rs 40 million benefit in 2014. PCC pays robust charges to the legislature and profits to the Treasury. The Horana storage space highlights the most recent chlorine Scrubber Installation Facility under the American Chemical Society measures. The chlorine Scrubber can prepare one ton of chlorine consistently.
Northern plants of PCC became latent in 1985 and thus have been relying upon the import of such chemicals loading the nearby assembling area with additional expenses. The whole Liquid Chlorine needs of Sri Lanka are imported and logically taken care of by our PCC. 98% of the Liquid Chlorine is consumed by the Water Supply and Drainage Board to give safe drinking water to Sri Lankans. PCC authorities advise that the Northern production lines could be resuscitated with an introductory speculation of $300-400 Million.
PCC had become inactive since 1985 because of the Northern war. From numerous points of view, the Northern PCC plants impelled the improvement of Sri Lankan assembling and commercial enterprises by creating and supplying locally made minimal effort chemicals that were immediately consumed by the businesses. At present, through PCC, Sri Lanka imports its whole yearly prerequisite of 2500 metric huge amounts of Liquid Chlorine, at an expense of $ 864000 (Rs 115 million).
PCC, as of late, began to generally make the broadly known fading fluid called "Sodium hypochlorite" which is utilized as a disinfectant and a blanching operator. The Northern production line site in Paranthan spreads over 217 acres of land and was decimated amid the three decades of war.
