JAMSHEDPUR: The National Metallurgical Laboratory (NML), a constituent unit of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) today took a major step ahead in its research and development on rare metals by signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM). The MoU signed between NML director S Srikanth and president of KIGAM, Ho-Wan chang here today would enhance exchange of scientific and technical information between the two institutions. It will also promote training and exchange visits of scientists and setting-up of a rare metal centre on NML’s premises in Burmamines, NML sources said. The MoU will promote collaborative researches between the two institutes on extraction of various rare metals like zirconium and palladium for industrial use. NML director, S Srikanth said that they have been jointly working with KIGAM, in the field of waste utilisation and recovery of valuable metals from secondary sources for more than five years. “Recovery of rare metals from secondary sources is a costly affair. The MoU will help in funding the project by KIGAM, an institute sponsored and recognised by the Republic of Korea,” Srikanth said adding that now the Korean institute would help them in recovery of rare metals from mineral resources and integrated technologies for exploration, purification including analysis technologies.
