Pilot plant for Nanomaterials at C-MET

Thursday, October 17, 2013: J Satyanarayana, Secretary, DeitY inaugurated a pilot plant for the preparation of Nanopowders for electronics and catalytic applications at C-MET’s campus at Athani, thrissur, Kerala on April 30, 2013, in presence of Dr. D. P. Amalnerkar, Executive Director, C-MET, Dr. K. R. Dayas, Director, C-MET, Thrissur and Dr. V. Kumar, Scientist, Nanomaterials Division, C-MET. The plant, financially supported by Dept. of Science & Technology, Government of India will cater to the requirement of industries in the Electronics and Catalytic sectors for a variety of nanopowders.

It is of immediate interest for development of nanosized powders (particle size

The Pilot plant has a batch capacity of 5.0 kg. per day. Over the last few years C- MET has established capability for the preparation of nanopowders, glass- nanoceramic composites and nanocrystalline thin films of alkaline-earth metal titanates and zirconates like Barium Titanate (BaTiO3), and Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) for several strategic applications in Defence and Space sectors. This facility is intended to provide the much needed platform for Scientists, Engineers and industry for accelerating the implementation of nanomaterials- based technologies.
