Welcome to ARCI

International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI) established in the year 1997, is an Autonomous Research and Development Centre of Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India with main campus at Hyderabad spread about 95 acres of land and with operations in Chennai and Gurgaon.

ARCI's mandate is:

  • Development of High Performance Materials and Processes for Niche Markets
  • Demonstration of Technologies at Prototype / pilot scale
  • Transfer of Technology to Indian Industry
  • Technological Solutions to industrial and strategic sectors
  • Human resource development in the advanced materials and associated processes

A unique feature of ARCI’s mandate relates to the fact that it is industry centric. To ensure that multi-disciplinary inputs can be readily harnessed for any of its targeted development efforts, ARCI has formed Centres of Excellence (COEs) in many generic thrust areas related to materials and materials processing, like nanomaterials, ceramics, engineered coatings, fuel cells, carbon materials, sol-gel coatings, laser materials processing, solar energy and automotive energy materials. Each of these COEs has been involved in the development of advanced materials-based technologies pertaining to their core expertise.

ARCI has been undertaking numerous sponsored projects with a variety of government agencies to develop specific products and/or associated technologies, besides carrying out contract research for both foreign and Indian companies. ARCI has also been carrying out basic R&D work, especially in collaboration with renowned institutes/laboratories worldwide.

ARCI has transferred technologies to more than 40 companies and developed about 200 technological solutions for industrial and strategic sectors.
