Market-driven R&D
Nurturing an Innovation Ecosystem
Thermax has, over the years, introduced several products that have redefined
industrial process efficiency. Its market driven R&D effort in the product
development process led to the success of Thermopac, a high temperature
liquid phase heater that replaces electricity with oil or coal as the heating
medium; triple effect absorption chillers that are 20% more efficient than
earlier generation systems; fluid bed scrubbing for gaseous as well as
particulate emission; compact biomass fired boilers and heating systems
with high efficiency combustion systems, new fuels and with reduced levels
of pollutants like sulphur dioxide.
Thermax’s focus on application oriented R&D led to the creation of Research,
Technology, Innovation Centre (RTIC). The Centre supports business research
teams and houses its own centres of excellence dedicated to material
science, biotechnology, solar, advanced computation and combustion &
heat transfer.
RTIC collaborates with leading scientific and academic institutions to bridge
the gap between industry requirements and academic curriculum.
Thermax has institutionalised the N. D. Joshi Innovation awards through
which it recognises and celebrates technological innovations of its employees
that have resulted in significant business gains for the company.
Technology Partnerships
Tie-ups with technology champions
To make its offerings relevant for client businesses, Thermax upgrades
its technology portfolio in the energy and environment space through
tie-ups with global technology majors. Some of the recent partnerships:
Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation
Group, Inc., USA
To engineer, manufacture and sell supercritical utility
boilers up to 800 MW in thermal power plants
SPX Corporation, USA
For power plant accessories, balance of plant
equipment, air pollution control systems and energy
efficiency equipment above the 300 MW range for
large power plants.
Georgia Pacific Corporation, USA

technical subjects to softer life skills, the
training calendar of Thermax is designed to
upgrade knowledge and skills. Teams share
their expertise with vendors and customers to
offer insights into new technologies.
Built on humane values, Thermax encourages
its people to speak up, to give voice to what

annual event brings together its employees
for a focused and informal conversation about
the policies and practices of the company.
So are Technology Day and the N. D. Joshi
Innovation awards that foster and showcase
the exciting new work done by its people.
Employees make time for the community. They
volunteer for CSR work in education in the
Thermax Foundation-run schools and mentor
students after work hours. They also spend
time at old age homes and enthusiastically
participate in marathons and other fund
raising programmes for its NGO partners.
Thermax has won multiple awards for
