Intellectual Property Portfolio

CLRI has over the years built up a strong base of a wide range of technologies. Conscious efforts are made by this Institute to secure appropriate Intellectual Property (IP) Rights like PATENT (in India and abroad) and COPYRIGHT in respect of the new developments.

While some of the knowledge products, generated by this Institute, have already been transferred to industry, majority of them are at different stages of development ( Lab scale/Pilot plant level).

The following table gives an overview of the Patent portfolio since April 1999.
