Indo Gulf Corporation Ltd, is one of the largest private sector fertiliser companies in India. Traditionally, urea has been the mainstay of the company until its recent foray into copper production. The company operates a large fertiliser unit at Jagdishpur in Uttar Pradesh. The unit comprises a single stream 1350 mtpd ammonia and 2250 mtpd urea plant.

Due to the feedstock used for NH3 production, there is insufficient CO2 to convert this to urea. CO2 is recovered from the flue gas of the ammonia reformer unit using a Fluor Econamine FGSM (Fluor) unit which helps to balance the NH3/CO2 requirements. This facility started operations around 1988 and produces 150 t/d CO2 that is utilised in the manufacture of urea.

From November to December in 2007, the plant captured 1472 tonnes of CO2. The following year, from October to December, 7659 tonnes were captured. This is a total reduction (in these particular months) of 9131 tonnes of CO2 which would otherwise have been released into the atmosphere.
