Deputy Director, PROJECT & PROCESS DEVELOPMENT DIVISION The project & process development division is one of the pioneer divisions in Project Development & Design Department with mandate on design, specification and development of process machinery and equipment and their integration into pilot plant for commercial production of Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) Intermediate & Finished raw materials and products. On the overall the division is set-up for the design, specification and setting up of micro pilot plants for demonstration & production of commercially acceptable industrial products. In achieving the mandate of PDD department, the division R & D activities cover development of optimized industrial process technologies, establish pilot/industrial process operations and their operational manuals in the areas of research listed below:

- Food and Agro-product (Machinery and Equipment)

- Chemical and Biochemical (Machinery and Equipment)

- Pilot Plant Integration and synchronizing.

- Pilot Plant Operation Research
