Indus Magic

Indus MAGIC is an acronym for Innovate, develop and up-scale MAGIC [modular, agile, intensified and continuous] processes and plants. This Indus MAGIC research program of CSIR is formulated based on critical analysis and understanding of the needs of Indian fine and specialty chemical industry. Specialty/ fine chemical industry forms the backbone of industrial and agricultural development of India. Over the years, the industry has evolved from a basic chemical producer to knowledge intensive industry. The industry also exhibited healthy growth. To fulfill the demands for addressing hitherto unmet and ever growing needs as well as expectations of a rapidly developing India, the fine and specialty chemicals sector is expected to grow at nearly double the rate of growth of overall economy. These new opportunities, the sheer magnitude of projected expansion and increasing demands on sustainability require tremendous research and technology inputs to support and to realize this expected growth. The Indus MAGIC research program is planned as a first step to meet these needs and to facilitate transformation of Indian fine and specialty chemical industry.

Indus CPI

In order to translate the benefits of research and developments being made under the Indus MAGIC programs to practice, a consortium of industries interested in the objectives of and associating with iCPs/ Indus MAGIC program is established. This industry consortium will facilitate increased interaction between industry and scientists at CSIR-NCL. This interaction will be useful to provide appropriate direction to research being carried out under these programs. The industry consortium, Indus CPI will facilitate increased interaction between industry and scientists at CSIR.

Indus Scholar

It is essential to involve large number of chemical engineering and process chemistry students and educate them about MAGIC (modular, agile, intensified and continuous) concepts for chemical processes and plants. For this purpose, a student’s program called Indus Scholar is established. The program invites chemical engineering and process chemistry students (mainly Masters or final year graduate students) to carry out project based on MAGIC concepts at the participating laboratories. It is expected that students will spend at least 3 months at the CSIR laboratories.
