Abstract Information :

"Today, much of India's development agenda is mirrored in the Sustainable Development Goals" was Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement at the United Nation Summit for the adoption of Post-2015 Development Agenda. The statement is but wishful one for a developing nation, a nation which is on its way to provide the next growth impetus that the Global economy is in want of. At the same time the statement is also a reflection (read - vision) of an unexploited opportunity to be sustainable even in this early growth phase. The challenge then for the Energy sector is to swiftly adjoin to this new transformational vision by fostering Clean Energy or Cleaner fossil fuels resource-building for an unhindered growth by engaging Clean Processes. For the sake of this paper we shall be restricting our deliberation to the mitigating technology and integration challenges in the production of Cleaner Fossil Fuels by Oil Refiners. The paper shall attempt to look into process of Particulate mitigation and emission mitigation technology adoptions for key Refinery Processes like FCCUs, SRUs and ETPs. This is in cohort to the recent announcement in 2016, by Govt of India that the country intends to skip the Euro V norms and adopt Euro VI norms by 2020. Though there are no parallels in the third world but a case in point is the Germany's most innovative and successful Green Energy Revolution. The moot question is: Whether India can stomach this Green Energy Revolution? Or whether its economics are not implicit enough and may have far reaching consequences?
