Font Size :



The Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology-IMMT, (formerly Regional Research Laboratory, Bhubaneswar) was setup as a premier establishment of the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi in 1964 in the State of Orissa, in eastern India. The laboratory specializes in providing R&D support for process and product development with special emphasis on conservation and sustainable utilization of natural resources. Over the years, IMMT has developed S&T capabilities in a wide range of areas from mineralogy to materials engineering. The laboratory has expertise in conducting technology oriented programmes in mining and mineral/bio-mineral processing, metal extraction and materials characterization, process engineering, industrial waste management, pollution monitoring and control, marine and forest products development, utilization of medicinal and aromatic plants and appropriate technologies for societal development.
Major Areas of Research of the Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology
  • Characterization of minerals, ore dressing and accumulation of ore fines and concentrates.
  • Pyro and hydro-metallurgical extraction of metals, production of alloys and recovery of metal values from wastes.
  • Production of special materials and composites.
  • Preparation and deduction of organic and inorganic chemicals from marine, forest and mineral resources.
