The Tirupati Graphene and Mintech Research Center is a unit of Tirupati Specialty Graphite. It is being developed in Bhubaneswar, India, with the aim of being a leading graphene manufacturer, developing its applications and giving the company its technological backbone. A detailed feasibility study has been completed for the project and land is being acquired. The company has a team of experts specializing in this field. The center has multiple arms of which GRACE and MINMET are the major ones. The center is designed to be self-sufficient and also carry out research for graphite and graphene applications and products.
