Spread over three acres, the new facility has a total capacity of 54,400 tonnes per annum and will initially have a capacity utilisation of 35 per cent, it said in a statement.

To increase company's topline, Jiya Eco said it is looking at exploring new domestic markets through franchise route and export opportunities.
The company is targeting 10 per cent jump in its topline on year-on-year basis to Rs 235 crore in the 2019-20 fiscal with sale volume of 2.55 lakh tonnes.
In the first quarter of this fiscal, the company posted a net profit of Rs 7.46 crore as against 6.14 crore in the year-ago period.
Total income rose by 10 per cent to Rs 52.58 crore from Rs 47.63 crore in the said period, the company added.
