year, a US Patent on a polypropylene catalyst
system was granted to Reliance. This was a notable
milestone for the Hazira R&D centre. Two
more international patents are being filed as
PCT application in the research area of polyolefin
catalyst and high performance stereo regulating
donors for polypropylene. A breakthrough was
achieved in the development of next generation
RELCAT 100 X and RELDONOR Technology for Polypropylene.
- RELCAT 100 X technology involves
the development of a high generation
morphologically controlled catalyst
and improved products.
- RELDONOR Technology has provided
the opportunity to improve catalyst
performance as well as product characteristics
without bringing change into the solid
- Reliance continued to sponsor and
participate in various research programmes
at premier institutes in India and
abroad including Polymer Institute,
Brno, Czech Republic and IIT Bombay.
- Reliance's partnership with the
Council of Scientific and Industrial
Research (CSIR) under the New Millennium
Indian Technology Leadership Initiative
(NMITLI) continued and progressed
towards developing technology in various
areas of polymers and chemicals.
