Morbi ceramic units to get 20% less gas supply
Each ceramic tile making unit in Morbi that uses natural gas as fuel will now receive 20% less supply. Gujarat Gas Ltd (GGL) has decided to temporarily ration gas supply of tiles-making plants in India’s largest ceramic industry cluster. Effective from April 18, the move is aimed at addressing the issue of low pressure and ensuring equitable supply of natural gas to all ceramic units in Morbi.
There has been a sudden spurt in demand of natural gas with hundreds of plants switching over to gas from coal-gasifiers following the National Green Tribunal (NGT) order to shut down units running on coal-gasifiers in Morbi.
