The Group owns and operates a CPC Plant that was engineered, designed and erected under the direct supervision of Engineers India Limited and was commissioned and operational from the year 1975. Petro Carbon and Chemicals Private Limited (PCCPL) was incorporated in September, 2007 and subsequently acquired, revamped and upgraded the CPC Plant in May 2008. Since then, the Group has been successful in evolving PCCPL into a sizeable CPC player in the Indian Market.
Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) is the product from calcining raw petroleum coke (RPC). The raw coke is the product of the coker unit in a crude oil refinery. CPC is used to make anodes for aluminium smelting, and is also used in dioxide industry, steel and titanium.
The Plant has a capacity of approximately 1,00,000 tons per annum of CPC and comprises an area of around 30 acres with good infrastructure facilities like railway sliding for facilitating unloading/loading of wagons, along with yard/shed to store raw petroleum coke/Calcined Petroleum Coke.
PCCPL is strategically located within the port perimeter and has access to all the strategic transportation means at door step.

|Airport||Kolkata Airport||128 km|
PCCPL has a comparative advantage given the prime land of 30 acres (15 acres un-utilized) at one of the busiest ports of eastern India, along with private railway sidings inside the factory premises which makes it the best combination for the bulk commodity focused group. The plant is virtually on the National Highway 41 and is well connected through road to strategic states like Odhisa, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh etc. Haldia port has minimal ship waiting time and a low turn round time for the vessels of 230 meters length and 32 meters width which can be easily accommodated in the port. The port has 13 berths. Seven of them are exclusively dedicated to coal and coke.
There is enough storage capacity within the Plant to store in excess of 50,000 tons of raw coke. The Plant also has a covered warehouse of over 20,000 tons of CPC. There is a long railway siding within the Plant boundary and by the side of the calcined coke warehouse for easy loading of wagons/rakes within the stipulated time.
Right from its inception, this Plant has been supplying CPC to the aluminium smelters like Hindalco, NALCO, BALCO, MALCO, in the country and has also been exporting to aluminium smelters abroad, mainly to Gulf.
