Lipid Science & Technology

Centre for Lipid Research of CSIR-IICT is recognized nationally and internationally as centre for excellence in the area of lipid research. Vegetable oil industry is one of the major industries in the world with a huge turnover next to petrochemicals. Vegetable oils not only play a significant role in nutrition but find use in diverse applications. Centre for Lipid Research has given major thrust on basic as well as applied research. The vision and goals of the Lipids Group mainly pertain to Newer Processing Methodologies for Vegetable Oils, Oleo chemicals and Specialty Chemicals, Bio lubricants, Biodiesel and Nutraceuticals. Centre for Lipid Research is presently executing several R & D projects with the financial support of several Government Agencies and Industrial Organizations. Centre for Lipid Research has established a good rapport with the Indian Industries and CSIR has taken a decision to strengthen this group by recognizing it as “The Centre of Excellence for Lipid Research”. The Centre has established state of art facilities in the areas of Vegetable Oils and Allied Products, Biodiesel, and Lubricants in addition to some specialized pilot units. This facility caters the needs of the vegetable oil and allied product industry on par with the International Standards. The Centre for Lipid Research is also organizing several Human Resource Development Programmes for the benefit of the vegetable oil and allied industry. In the present scenario, renewable raw materials are gaining prominence offering greater opportunities for researchers to develop processes and products based on green technologies and the Centre for Lipid Research is geared up to meet the future challenges.
