The focus of South Central Railway to increase freight traffic by adding new commodities to its freight basket has been consistently gaining traction. Continuing this momentum, for the first time, Veldurti station of Hyderabad Division in the state of Andhra Pradesh has been able to start loading of Sodium Hydroxide (new commodity) commonly known as “Caustic Soda Lye”. 80 Tank containers consisting of around 2,200 Tonnes of Caustic Soda is being loaded in 40 BLL Flat wagons from Veldurti, which is destined for Nalco Siding at Damanjodi of Orissa state. Accordingly, the first Caustic Soda rake of SCR is being loaded today i.e., 23rd October, 2021.

Caustic Soda Lye is a major product being produced at Tandrapadu village near Kurnool, which is 50 Kms from Veldurti station. It is used to manufacture soaps, rayon, paper, explosives, dyestuffs and petroleum products. It is also used in processing cotton fabric, laundering and bleaching, metal cleaning and processing, oxide coating, electroplating and electrolytic extracting.
