Research Center for Mineral Processing and Metallurgy

About CMPM

Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials (IMRAM or Tagenken), Tohoku University, created in part from the former Research Institute of Mineral Dressing and Metallurgy, has been researching all sorts of things through many different approaches and viewpoints. Our institute promotes the development of cutting edge research and new areas of study, while also re-concentrating new comprehensive knowledge of metal resource processing. We aim to be a leader in future training and the continued development of the metallurgical industry, and have established the Center for Mineral Processing and Metallurgy (CMPM) in order to fulfill these goals. This center will recreate the expertise of processing and metallurgy that will support social infrastructure, and pursue new metal resource processing in the future, starting with the processes of dressing and refining metals, but also including the process of recovering resources from waste, nuclear fuel processes, resources circulation and disposal processing, and urban mining processes.
