New Delhi: In a landmark development, India has launched its first Research & Development (R&D) facility in the petroleum sector for testing high-end BS-VI quality fuel emissions. The facility, operated by the largest fuel retailer Indian Oil Corp (IOC) was inaugurated by oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan.
The first-of-its-kind R&D facility in Faridabad is designed to test all types of fuel including petrol, diesel, ethanol-blended petrol, bio-diesel, CNG, LNG, Hydrogen-CNG and 2G-ethanol blends to ensure 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 facility will also evaluate the fuel blends for energy-efficiency and engine durability.
