Shiv Nadar University inks MoU with Bharat Petroleum's Corporate Research & Development Centre

In a collaboration to extend industrial and scientific innovation, Shiv Nadar University inked an MoU with the Corporate Research & Development Centre (CRDC) of Bharat Petroleum.  The project, led by Principal Investigator Dr. V. M. Rajesh, with Co-Principal Investigators Dr. Sanjeev Yadav, Prof. R. P. Chhabra, and Dr. Karan Gupta, will work on process intensification of highly exothermic chemical reaction of BPCL’s interest in the area of petrochemicals. After the MoU was signed on December 21, 2023, the project officially started on January 4, 2024.

"Partnering with CRDC, Bharat Petroleum, Greater Noida, for this groundbreaking initiative reflects our dedication to leading-edge research and practical innovation. The development of novel reactors for highly exothermic process is a challenge we embrace enthusiastically. Our team's expertise is vital in navigating the complexities of this exothermic process, and we are poised to make significant contributions to this field." - Sanjeev Yadav, Head of Department of Chemical Engineering, Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence

"We at CRDC, Bharat Petroleum, are collaborating with Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence to develop novel reactors for complex exothermic processes where efficient heat management is crucial. This venture is an opportunity to develop, test and implement advanced technology, showcasing our commitment to innovation and excellence in handling complex chemical processes." - Project Lead at BPCL

"This project with CRDC, Bhapart Petroleum, and SNIoE is a significant stride in our pursuit of excellence in chemical processing.
