ABOUT CSIR-IMMT

CSIR-Institute of Minerals and Materials
Technology (IMMT) was set up in 1964 as
Regional Research Laboratory, Bhubaneswar in
the eastern part of India under the aegis of the
Council of Scientific and Industrial Research
(CSIR), New Delhi. Regional Research Laboratory
was renamed as Institute of Minerals and
Materials Technology in 2007 with a renewed
research focus and growth strategy to be the
global leader in the areas of minerals engineering
and materials technology. The institute has
expertise in conducting basic research and
technology oriented programs in a wide range of
subjects to ensure a sustainable growth of the
mining, mineral and metals industries. For the
last one decade, main thrust of R&D at CSIR-
IMMT has been to empower the Indian industries
to meet the challenges of globalization by
providing advanced and zero waste process
know-how and consultancy services for
commercial exploitation of natural resources
through the public-private-partnership (PPP)
approach. Today, CSIR-IMMT is the first choice
for many mineral based industries; while it is
trying to develop a niche in some of the advanced
materials for greater value addition.
