With Innovation as one the core Corporate Values, IndianOil has done path-breaking research and has become the first Indian Company to develop novel REACH compliant Internal Donors, based on 1,2-pheneylene dioates (Indian Patent 2040/MUM/2012 and PCT published WO 2014/013401 A1). The IndianOil team of inventors include Dr. Bhaskar Bantu, SRO, Dr. Sukhdeep Kaur, SRO, Dr. KK Naresh, SRO, Dr. Gurmeet Singh, DMR, Dr. G.S. Kapur, DGM (PC), Dr. Shashikant, former GM (PC) and Scientists Emeritus;  Dr B Basu, former ED (LT) and Dr RK Malhotra, former Director (R&D).

REACH is an EU regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. It was enforced on 1st June 2007 and streamlines the former legislative framework on chemicals of European Union (EU). It addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impact on both human health and the environment.

The second award celebrates innovation achieved by IndianOil R&D in designing the Solar LED light with respect to use of polymeric materials of construction as well as multi-purpose use of the product as a lamp, lantern, mobile charger, bulb and torch.
