New Delhi/India –The companies would evaluate installation of a demonstration-scale unit to produce green transportation fuels at an existing Indian Oil site using non-food feedstocks available within India. Both companies also plan to evaluate the viability of pyrolysis oil technology to convert lignocellulosic materials, or plant biomass, into renewable power and heat. In addition, Indian Oil plans to research and develop technologies for the production of algal oil for use as a feedstock in the green fuels production.

Viable and Sustainable Bio Fuels

“This collaboration is focused on the development of viable and sustainable green fuels that will enable reduced greenhouse gas emissions in India,” said Jennifer Holmgren, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Renewable Energy and Chemicals business unit. “We are honoured to work with Indian Oil to support this initiative and movement toward a reduced carbon footprint in India.”
