Company Overview

Clean Science is among the few companies that are globally focused entirely on developing newer technologies using in-house catalytic processes, which are eco-friendly and cost-competitive.

 Its continued focus on product identification, process innovation, catalyst development, the significant scale of operations as well as the measures towards strategic backward integration have all contributed to the company’s success as one of the fastest-growing and amongst the most profitable specialty chemical companies globally. 

The company manufactures functionally critical specialty chemicals such as performance chemicals, pharmaceutical intermediates, and FMCG chemicals. 

 In FY21, exports contributed 67.86 per cent to total revenue from operations. Its key customers include Bayer AG, SRF, Gennex Laboratories, Nutriad International NV and Vinati Organics. It has two certified production facilities in India at Kurkumbh (Maharashtra), with a combined installed capacity of 29,900 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) as of March 2021. 

 It has also recently set up a unit at the third facility adjacent to existing facilities at Kurkumbh (Maharashtra) and has recently been allotted land for the construction of a fourth facility at Kurkumbh (Maharashtra).
