This year we expect to cross Rs 1,000 crore in revenue. To achieve the USD 2 billion target, we just need to invest a few hundred crores to ramp up capacity,” Gupta mentioned.

Our capex requirement for extraction is around USD 3,250 per tonne, whereas the global capex per tonne is between USD 5,500 to 10,000. We have the lowest opex in the world,” Gupta mentioned.
