HPCL Gets Ministry’s Nod to Pilot Composite LPG Cylinders

August 28 2017

Composite liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) bottles are set to be tested in the Indian markets, with the state-run Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL) getting the go-ahead from the ministry of petroleum and natural gas. These fiber-made bottles haven’t hit the market yet due to the lack of requisite approvals from various agencies such as Indian Standards Institute. The relatively higher cost of the composite cylinders has also been a hurdle.

Time Technoplast, one of the manufacturers of this category of cylinders, exports almost all cylinders it makes to countries in south Asia, Africa and West Asia, among others. HPCL in a written reply to FE’s queries said it would be piloting the roll out of composite cylinders on behalf of the industry.
