Grasim Industries Ltd. proudly unveils EcoSodium, a recovered Sodium Sulphate (SS) from the Viscose Staple Fibre (VSF) production process. This recovery helps reduce the environmental footprint by limiting the discharge of wastewater.

Sodium Sulphate, a pivotal inorganic chemical with extensive applications, is traditionally sourced from mining or synthetic means. Grasim is in sync with global best practices in sodium sulphate recovery by continuously improving its processes.

“With EcoSodium, we are not only delivering on sustainability but also redefining industry standards,” says Mr. ManMohan Singh, Chief Marketing Officer at Grasim Industries Ltd.
