The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) will set up 500 medical oxygen plants within three months under PM-CARES Fund.

The Medical Oxygen Plant (MOP) technology developed by DRDO for onboard oxygen generation for LCA, Tejas will now help in fighting the current crisis of oxygen for the Covid-19 patients.

Medical Oxygen Plant (MOP) technology is capable of generating oxygen with 93±3% concentration which can be directly supplied to hospital beds or can be used to fill medical oxygen cylinders. It utilizes the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technique and Molecular Sieve (Zeolite) technology to generate oxygen directly from atmospheric air.

The MOP technology will be useful to provide oxygen supply during Corona Pandemic in hospitals in urban and rural areas. Hospitals will be able to generate on-site medical oxygen, in a cost-effective manner with this oxygen plant rather than depending upon sourcing it from other places.
