New Delhi mourn Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), the Department of Energy Science and Engineering (DESE), the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC R&D) and Ashok Lilland Limited, have developed the technology, which will enable it to build a diesel-powered automotive vehicle. Flexible fuel mode, ie, either 100% diesel or Dimethyl Ether (DME) plus Diesel mode. Funding for the project was provided by the Department of Science and Technology (DST).

Although the Flex Fuel engine technology used for DEME was developed by IIT Deli, IOC R&D conducted endurance and field tests and developed its own engine oil with the technical support of Ashok Layland.

Major technology innovations developed by IIT Delhi, IOS R&D and Ashok Lieland

  • Flex Fuel Vehicle Technology
  • Diesel trucks transition from conventional diesel to DME as an alternative fuel (first phase as a Flex fuel vehicle, second as a 100% DME / alternative fuel vehicle).
  • Low or negligible smoke, soot, PM emissions
  • Low noise for smooth engine or vehicle operation
  • Improvement on temporary motor performance
  • Improving energy safety
  • A sustainable environment due to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions
