11. Production Performance :
NATURAL SUGAR – A SUCCESS STORY
1. Necessity of Natural Sugar In this area:
Natural Sugar & Allied Industries Ltd., is located in a area of abundant raw material i.e. best quality sugar cane. Its operational area is within 50 kms. having 263 villages only. Due to excess cane (high yield sector) there was less demand and lower prices to this cane. Thus, no demand, no price, frustrated the farmers. All these conditions necessitated the strong will for establishment of Natural Sugar. It is located at the 100% perennial area of Manjara Dam, which is 15 kms below the dam location. The area within 30 kms is irrigated by right and left cannals of Manjara Dam, right and left bank river water and Raighavhan medium project. Hence, the availability of best quality cane is assured even in the draught condition also.
Natural Sugar is a public limited Company registered under Indian Company Act. 1956. It is the first sugar plant completed in February 2000 in a shortest span of 9 months and at the lowest cost of Rs. 20.00 crores with the strong financial support from farmer members by contributing 11.00 crores as share capital and Rs.9.00 crores as a term loan from The Vaidvanath Urban Co-Operative Bank Ltd., Parali Vaidyanath with other urban banks in consortium.
2. Within a span of 14 years, Natural Sugar has expanded its activities vertically and horizontally. By year 2012 the Natural Sugar has developed strength in various activities as follows.
a) Sugar Plant :
We have installed 5000 TCD new sugar plant as expansion programe during last 5 years from 2500 TCD. We can crush minimum 8.00 lakhs tons of cane with an average sugar recovery of 11.50%. The annual average sugar production is 9.20 lakhs quintals, valuing to Rs. 350.00 crores of sales turnover.
b) Co-Generation Plant :
13 MW additional power generations in addition to exist 10 MW is installed in 2010. Out of total 23 MW power generations from co-generation plant, 8 MW is used for Sugar Plant, Distillery, Bio-gas, Dairy, Colony & other activities. 9 MW is used for Ferro Alloys Steel Plant for manufacturing of Ferro Steel & balance 6 MW is exported to state grid as surplus power. The total annual production of Co-gen. Plant is 81000 MW for 160 days crushing period and annual turnovers of Co-gen. Plant is expected Rs. 46.50 crores.
c) Ferro Alloys (Steel) Plant :
We have installed two sub merged arc furnaces having capacity of 6 MVA each. The 9 MW power is consumed by both the furnaces for manufacturing of Ferro Manganese and Silico Manganese from Manganese ore. Ferro Manganese and Silico Manganese are the basic raw material for manufacturing of any sort of steel. The daily production capacity of Ferro Alloys (Steel) Plant is 50 to 60 MT per day. The yearly production of Ferro Alloys plant is 10,000 MT and valuing to 50.00 crores of sales turnovers.
d) Distillery Project :
We have installed Distillery project to process the molasses and produce Industrial Alcohol i.e. Rectify Spirit (R.S.), Impure Spirit (I.S.), Extra Neutral Alcohol (E.N.A), and Ethanol. The production capacity of Distillery plant is 60,000 liters per day of rectified spirit and 30,000 ltrs of Ethanol. The annual production is of 90.00 lakhs ltrs and Ethanol is 45.00 lakhs ltrs total to 135.00 lakhs ltrs per year valuing to Rs. 50.00 crores of sales turnovers.
e) Bio-Gas base power plant :
The Distillery effluent namely spent wash is treated in two Bio-Digesters having capacity of 45,000 M3 per day of Bio-Gas generation. The said gas is further purified with H2S separation plant and pure Methane is used for gas base power generation engine of 1.5 MW power generation. The exhaust of gas engine is used as fuel for heat recovery boiler and generated steam is used for Distillery process. At the same time balance purified Bio-gas is used as fuel for 6 MT capacities Boiler for steam generation which is used for Distillery Production. Hence the 100% recycle of Hazards waste of Distillery effluent i.e. spent wash is treated and “Zero” discharge pollution concept is 100% achieved with value addition and a strong profit centre from Hazards waste.
f) Sugar :
We have installed most modern sugar refinery plant of 250 Tons capacity per day for manufacturing of Refine Sugar of 45 ICUMSA, which is sulphur free and 100% pure sugar as per the International Standard.
g) Bio-Compost Plant :
The press-mud, bi-product of sugar plant is treated with outflow of Bio-Digester i.e. treated spent wash with additions of micro nutrients and bio culture to enrich the press-mud and converted into high quality bio-compost at the Bio-Compost Plant. The average annual production is 25,000 MTs valuing to Rs. 1.25 crores of its sales turnover.
h) Dairy - Milk Processing Project :
To have a ancillary activities of milk production to the farmers, we have recently installed most modern and fully automatic Dairy Plant of 25,000 ltr capacity per day. The annual production of milk and milk products will be of 75.00 lakhs ltrs valuing to Rs. 25.00 crores of sales turnover.
We have started full-fledged software division mainly for development of various types of modules for sugar and bio-products industry. The software developed by our division is well proved and accepted by many sugar factories in Maharashtra.
3. With above activities in various fields following are our special achievements in sugar Industry for projection of environment and natural resources.
To control water pollution of sugar plant, we have installed diffused aeration and bio-digester of advanced system technology and well supported to achieve the required the norms of the MPC Board. The treated water is used exclusively for agriculture purpose. MDH fly ash arrestor for boiler chimney, which has 100% efficiency for arresting the fly ash, prevents the air pollution. The collected ash is used to increase the porosity of Press-mud instead of Bagasse, which is resulted in saving of bagasse and value added waste as compost to the farmers.
a) Water Conservation:
As the Maharashtra state is passing through a vicious cycle of water scarcity, Natural Sugar has decided to use the water available in sugar cane itself and succeeded since last 5 years to run the sugar plant with water available in sugar cane without availing water from outside sources by recycling and prohibiting miss-use of water with well planned close circuit. This reduces the effluent generation big way.
Our's is a ISO 9001-2008 Company by the Quality Assurance Services of Australia. The ISO 9001 -2008 norms are strictly observed and implemented in day-to-day working of the Company. The implementation of ISO 9001-2008 has drastically improved the performance, the quality and efficiency of the Company.

l. N SAI Rural Hospital.
Most important aspect of social corporate responsibility of Natural Sugar is establishing extension of health services to the poor and common man in rural area through N SAI Rural Hospital, which is established in May 2013 with main thrust on woman & child health & welfare as prime object.
m. “Natural Jalsandharan Yojana”.
To overcome the cyclic rotation of draught, we have decided to implement the water and soil conservation schemes from our own resources. Accordingly we have provided Rs.2.5 crores out of our profit for the said scheme and every year we are completing at least 10 to 15 villages under the scheme and have a programme of complete eradication of draught from of our area of 50 villages within next 5 years.
The main schemes are Contour percolations Canal at foot level of hilly areas and Nala deepening and widening. With this both schemes excess rain water flowing out of farm will be collected, stored and will be percolated underground and will be stored underground, which enrich heavily the underground water level permanently and utilized for drinking as well as irrigation purposes by the villagers. This is the only ultimate source to eradicate permanently the draught from Maharashtra. This is the de-centralized, most, cost effective and high result oriented scheme to be adopted and implemented by Government of Maharashtra as well as Government of India on top priority as a permanent measure to overcome the draught.
