Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]December 22 (ANI/BusinessWire India): TATA Projects Limited, one of India’s fastest growing and most respected infrastructure companies, yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research – Indian Institute of Petroleum (CSIR – IIP ) to collaborate and work together to provide clean energy solutions.
As part of this endeavour, clean energy solutions such as room temperature bio-diesel produced by CSIR-IIP will be used at some of the Tata Projects’ ongoing sites. Further, the partnership will also actively explore the use of green diesel by-products from the existing DILSAAF™ (Liquid Sustainable Aviation and Automotive Fuel) pilot plant at the CSIR-IIP campus in Dehradun and the proposed commercial scale demonstration unit at Tata Projects’ fleet.
Construction and infrastructure remains one of the largest industrial sectors in India. Thousands of light and heavy vehicles, including various types of construction equipment – both small and large – are used during the execution of the project. If even a fraction of these vehicles and equipment switch from diesel to a cleaner energy source, the change will ensure lower emissions and a more sustainable future for the sector and the planet.

Vinayak Pai, Managing Director – Tata Projects Ltd said, “We are proud to partner with CSIR- Indian Institute of Petroleum, in bringing their indigenous, sustainable, bio-based technologies to our construction sites, in our efforts to decarbonize the hard to reduce engineering and construction industry. As part of the Tata Group’s commitment to the planet, our transition to cleaner alternative energy remains at our core, and we look to continued collaboration between academia and industry to find innovative pathways to that end.”
Dr. Anjan Rai, Director – CSIR-IIP, confirmed that “CSIR-IIP is excited to move forward with this partnership with Tata Projects Ltd as a specific focus of our initiatives with the Tata Sustainability Group. The MoU aligns well with our mandate to reduce India’s energy imports and increase national self-reliance by repurposing waste and underutilized local renewable carbon resources.”
CSIR – The Indian Institute of Petroleum is located in Dehradun and is dedicated to research and development in the hydrocarbon sector. Its charter is to provide competitive and sustainable technologies and products that will meet the demands of the ever-growing energy sector and develop capacity and capability in new energy areas such as bio-hydrogen and solar energy and their innovative combinations.
Tata Sustainability Group (“TSG”) serves as a center of excellence and nodal resource for sustainability for Tata Group companies. Since its formation in 2014, it has been working with Tata Group companies to embed sustainability into their business strategies and transition them to a low-carbon scenario. The Tata Group recently unveiled a transformative sustainability vision that envisages the Group becoming Net Zero by 2045. The Tata Group is ranked as the top sustainability leader in Asia Pacific and the only Asian company to appear among the top 15 corporations globally by the Sustainability Leaders Survey GlobeScan, 2022.
