  3. Objectives

In 1987 it was decided to setup a National Corrosion Council of India (NCCI) for effective dissemination of knowledge on corrosion and its control and also to serve as a focal body for research and development in the field of Corrosion Science and Engineering in the country.

NCCI started functioning from 1990. It is located in the premises of the CSIR--CECRI, Karaikudi, Tamilnadu.

Only nominated institutional members from various major industries / institutions and public sector undertakings.

To stimulate on the national level research in corrosion science and engineering technology.

To provide an organization within the frame work of which corrosion scientists, engineers, industrialists and academicians can meet and exchange their views and ideas.

To conserve equipment, materials and natural resources and to improve operating safety of structures.

To encourage the practical application of research results, particularly through education and training.

To organize and conduct activities of interest to council members such as holding meeting, arranging lectures, symposia/seminars.


CSIR-Central Electrochemical Research Institute, Karaikudi

CSIR-CECRI, spread over 300 acres, is located in a serene atmosphere and picturesque surroundings. With a large variety of plants and trees, both traditional as well as ornamental, birds and animals, including a large number of peacocks, the campus is aesthetically pleasing to the eye from every angle. The clean, green and pollution-free environment at CSIR-CECRI is quite apt for R&D work. The residents in the campus also live in harmony with nature.

CECRI is one of the chain of CSIR laboratories and largest electrochemical laboratory in the world, engaged in Research & Development in all the facets of electrochemical science and technology. CECRI covers a gamut of fields including Batteries and Fuel Cells, Corrosion Science and Engineering, Electrochemical Instrumentation, Electrochemical Materials Science, Electrochemical Pollution Control, Electrodics and Electrocatalysis, Electrohydro-metallurgy, Electro-pyrometallurgy, Functional Materials, Industrial Metal Finishing and Nanoscale Electrochemistry.

CECRI assists the Indian industry by conducting surveys and undertaking consultancy projects. The institute also conducts short-term refresher courses for the benefit of the industry and academia. As part of its human resource development programme, CECRI runs Anna University’s B.Tech course in Chemical & Electrochemical Engineering. Researchers from this part of the country make good use of the excellent library as well as the state-of-the-art analytical and characterization facilities at the institute. CECRI also organizes national and international conferences for dissemination of scientific knowledge. CECRI is alive to societal obligations and participates in such activities as entrepreneur development and CSIR’s youth development programme. CECRI is recipient of several technology awards for its telling service to Indian industry.
