Petroleum Minister inaugurates BS-VI Emission Testing Facilities at IndianOil’s R&D Centre
Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas (Independent Charge), inaugurated the BS-VI Emission Testing Facilities at IndianOil’s R&D Centre in Faridabad . Mr. KD Tripathi, Secretary, MoPNG; Mr. Sanjiv Singh, Chairman, IndianOil; Dr. SSV Ramakumar, Director (R&D), IndianOil, and other senior officials accompanied the Minister on his visit to the various research facilities on the R&D Centre campus.
The R&D facilities inaugurated today are designed to test all types of fuels, such as petrol, diesel, ethanol-blended petrol, bio-diesel, CNG, LNG, Hydrogen-CNG and 2G-ethanol blends, to ensure that they meet the superior BS-VI norms that are to be implemented across the country by April 2020. In addition to generating emission data, the facilities will also evaluate the fuel blends for energy efficiency and engine durability.
Addressing the senior scientists at the R&D Centre, Mr. Pradhan exhorted them to ensure that the benefits of their research and innovations reach the common man and benefit him in every possible way. Complimenting them for developing a nano-additised battery for use in e-rickshaws, with better efficiency and longer life than commercially available batteries, he urged them to take its benefits to the market at the earliest.
