BHEL CFFP unit at Haridwar is involved in manufacturing of heavy industrial equipment. The manufacturing facility has a custom shop where manufacturing of large size castings and forgings of various types of alloy steels, creep-resistant steel(s) and supercritical grade steel is carried out. The GAIL (India) Limited team visited their site and critical observations were recorded.

Till date, this plant had been using LPG (Liquefied petroleum gas) and LDO (Light Diesel Oil), but now the plant has been made capable of using natural gas as a fuel. Post the change, remarkable differences in the amounts of fuel consumption and costs of using the fuels were observed. A high reduction in costs and  a massive 26% reduction in the carbon footprint are some of the benefits that came with the implementation of natural gas in their plants. Saving energy as well as money, with the same output, is the ideal situation for any plant, and natural gas makes that situation a reality.

Reductions in carbon emissions lead to better public health, resulting in more trees growing, fewer diseases and much more. This study shows that not only does the use of natural gas reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions, it also reduces cost, resulting in a higher monetary saving, giving nothing but profit to your company. Now is the time to switch to natural gas.

India and Renewables

As per a report published on the economist, only 2% of India’s land should suffice for generating 100% of electricity required through renewable sources like wind and solar.

The report also mentioned, at the current rate of business, it might take the world approximately 200 years to get all the electricity it needs through renewable sources, but by bringing down the cost to the level, as it is currently in China, this figure could be reduced down to 40 years.

Is not it an amazing fact to inspire us towards sustainable development.  Share your views in the comments section below.

Investments in renewable


Its a good news that almost every country is now feeling itself responsible for conservation of nature. It is clear by the prediction that 2/3rd of $7.7 Trillion in energy investments by 2030 will be in renewables.

Possibilities in natural gas exploration

Do you know that 48% of India’s overall sedimentary basin area is yet to evaluated for hydrocarbon reserve potential. Nearly 60% of the total area awarded for exploration has been relinquished by awardees and deemed to have no commercial prospect


CNG vs Conventional Fuel

Is CNG the immediate FUTURE ?

The ravages of drained energy resources are becoming more manifest every day. Thus,  the fight for “ saving “ the earth’s energy resources is moving with escalating urgency.

In this era of technological advancements, the search for green fuel is the major concern. So far the nearest contender to meet all the environmental and economical aspects has been natural gas. Today about 90% of the world’s energy consumption is being generated using fossil fuels.This has lead to a portentous situation where more dependence on non-renewable means worsening the current scenario.

It has become imperative of energy to be generated from natural gas and be effectively integrated into the economy. Natural gas appliances cuts carbon footprint of a home by 43% as compared to the electrical ones. For every megawatt hour power generated, coal –powered electric stations emits double the amount of carbon emissions as compared to natural gas powered stations. Today, Natural gas is being harnessed in every industrial sector ranging from production of vinyl flooring,  carpets, medicines, sun glasses, facial make ups and many more.
