Borosil Renewables Bags National Award 2021 for Technology Development

India’s first and only domestic solar glass manufacturer, Borosil Renewables has grabbed the National Award for Successful Commercialisation 2021. The award has been given under the best technology development category for its masterpieces including 2mm fully tempered solar glass, Shakti: Solar glass in matt finish, Selene: Anti-glare solar glass for PV installations near the airport.

Borosil Renewables broke the news through Twitter and LinkedIn. Expressing gratefulness for the achievement, the company said, “It gives us immense pleasure to inform you that Borosil Renewables Ltd. has won a prestigious National Award 2021 for Successful Commercialisation of Indigenous Technology presented by the Technology Development Board, Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. We are glad that our endeavor to pursue technology for the greater good has been appreciated by the Government of India on the occasion of National Technology Day and we humbly accept this honor.”

“We wish to dedicate this award to the Borosil Renewables Ltd. team for the years of dedication that they have shown to make innovative and differentiated products for our customers and making the Indian products competitive and globally acceptable. The journey so far has been full of challenges but truly exciting and we look forward to continuing the caravan of innovations in the future,” Borosil added.

Earlier last month, Saur reported Borosil Renewables‘s, plans for doubling its capacity to 900 tonnes per day with a planned investment of Rs 500 crore. The renewable venture of the Borosil Group currently has a 450-tonne per day solar panel glass manufacturing capacity at its Baruch plant in Gujarat, which is enough to power 2.5 GW of solar power plants.

While back in March 2021, the Ministry of Finance had formally notified the levy of countervailing duty (CVD) on the cost, insurance, and freight (CIF) value on the imports of textured and tempered (whether coated or uncoated) glass from Malaysia. The move followed a recommendation from the country’s DGTR (Directorate General of Trade Remedies) in December last year, when it had recommended a 9.71 percent CVD following a complaint by Borosil Renewables.
