BPCL Corporate Research & Development Centre (CRDC), a premier research institution in the country, is an R&D Centre recognized by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR). The Centre, located at Greater Noida and set up on a sprawling 68-acre site, was established in 2001. The facility has grown manifold since then, as the more research domains were added steadily in the subsequent years.
Bharat Petroleum, a leading public sector undertaking (PSU) with ‘Maharatna’ status, is a national oil company engaged in the petroleum refining and marketing business, with about 21% share of marketing of oil products in the country. For navigating the future proactively and to ensure sustained competitiveness, setting up CRDC was a decisive move in the innovation-led growth strategy of the corporation.
CRDC has developed numerous cutting-edge technologies as well as innovative products and processes, to increase company’s profitability and reduce the environmental footprint. This relentless quest for excellence has yielded many rich rewards, such as the large portfolio of patents that we have built up over the years by innovating industry-leading solutions.
