Petroleum Products and Fuels
Liquid, Gaseous and Solid fuels are the main source of energy. With the increasing awareness of stringent environment laws there is a greater need to test the materials to control the quality. This quality control is important in automobile and power sectors. Besides, these fuels have to be evaluated from the view point of pollution control.

The Coal and Petroleum laboratory of SRI undertakes testing of various types of Petroleum products, Coolants, Solid and Liquid fuels. It is well equipped with sophisticated and versatile analytical instruments for various analytical applications.
