Rajshree Sugars & Chemicals Limited (RSCL) was incorporated in 1985. It has interests across integrated fields such as sugar, distillery, power and biotechnology. It has two modern integrated sugar complexes located at Varadaraj Nagar and Mundiampakkam in Tamil Nadu, with an easy access to both Tuticorin and Chennai ports. The Company is based at Coimbatore, India. The plants have a capacity of 6000 TCD (tons crushed per day). This is now being enhanced to 7500 TCD. With its strategic location in the tropical latitudes, the factories have the benefit of longer harvest periods, enabling them to handle nearly 2 million tons of sugarcane in a sugar season producing 200,000 tons of sugar. The average sugar recovery is 10.32 % and the average sugar cane yield per hectare is 86 tons against the national average of 59 tons. The distillery unit has a capacity of 45 KLPD (kilo litres per day) producing 12 million litres of alcohol per year. The plant can produce rectified spirit, extra neutral alcohol (ENA) and fuel grade anhydrous alcohol (AA). Unit - I of RSCL with a capacity of 2,500 TCD (tones of cane crushed per day), commenced operations in January 1990 at Varadaraj Nagar in Theni District of Tamilnadu. RSCL acquired South India Sugar Ltd, Villupuram in the year 2002 and subsequently merged the company with itself. With RSCL`s expertise, the unit has become one of the most efficient sugar plants in South India.
