Citadel of Innovation
CRDC is where nascent ideas germinate and flourish into full-fledged innovations. This “Citadel of Innovation” is where the ceaseless quest for excellence enables us to be at the forefront of science and technology for development of cleaner fuels, superlative petroleum products, class-leading industry-specific solutions, and furtherance of sustainable energy.
CRDC has three laboratory blocks housing several niche laboratories, one process scale-up laboratory and various utility blocks. Apart from deriving electrical power from an external power utility company, CRDC has a grid connected 1.05 MW solar power plant for captive electricity generation, which powers CRDC during office hours.
The existing built up area of 15,690 square meters of the CRDC complex, consisting of laboratory facilities, storage areas and other related facilities, is being increased to 22,860 square meters with the addition of new infrastructure.
