Borosil Renewables Limited is a part of the well-known Borosil group who are pioneers in specialty glass products. BRL is engaged in the manufacturing of low iron solar glass for application in photovoltaic panels and solar thermal flat plate collectors. The company spotted the opportunity in this segment quite early and commissioned the solar glass manufacturing facility at Bharuch, Gujarat in 2010.

BLR is known for its pioneering achievements of developing the world’s first fully tempered 2 mm thick solar glass, solar glass with the lowest iron content giving the highest glass efficiency, and successful removal of the most hazardous substance “Antimony” from its solar glass.

Very recently BLR has launched new products like Selene, which is an anti-glare solar glass suitable for PV installations near airports, and Shakti a high-efficiency solar glass in the matt-matt finish.
