Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas &Steel Dharmendra Pradhan, along with the Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal, laid the foundation stone of Indian Oil’s state-of-the-art technology development & deployment centre as its second research and development (R&D) campus at IMT, Sector-67 in Faridabad, Haryana.

The new centre covers an area of around 59 acre and will see an investment of Rs 2,282 crore.

The new campus will focus on demonstration & deployment of various technologies developed by Indian Oil R&D, and will work in tandem with the existing campus at Faridabad.

The research infrastructure at the new campus includes state-of-the-art laboratories and pilot plants in the domains of alternative and renewable energy, e.g., fuel cell, hydrogen, gasification and solar energy research, semi-commercial nano-material production unit, scale-up/pilot plants in petrochemicals, catalysts, biotechnology, among others.

The new extension of Indian Oil’s R&D Centre will focus on non-conventional energy domains besides the conventional ones and aim at indigenisation of several frontline and sunrise technologies such as petrochemicals, batteries/energy storage devices, bio-energy-greenhouse gas (CO2) capture, novel nano materials for catalysts or fuel cells, hydrogen production pathways and fuel cells for both mobility and stationary applications.
