"CSIR-IICT and BHEL partners to advance clean fuel technology: MoU signed on CO2 to DME"

Hyderabad, April 19 (UNI) The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (CSIR-IICT) and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) Corporate R&D have forged a partnership to develop technology for capturing and converting carbon dioxide (CO2) to Dimethyl Ether (DME) through direct catalytic conversion.
