Govt. of Kerala incorporated Kerala Minerals and Metals Limited in the year 1972 by acquiring the FXP Mineral plant (established in 1932) from a private entrepreneur. With share capital of Rs. 30.93 crores, the plant had a total outlay of Rs.144 crores. This is only the first fully integrated Titanium Dioxide plant in the world in the same campus. KMML has made an indelible mark in the field of mining, mineral processing and manufacturing. The company is India’s first and only manufacturer of Rutile grade Titanium Dioxide by Chlorine route. KMML also manufactures mineral sand like Ilmenite, Natural Rutile, Zircon and Intermediary products like Synthetic route (Beneficiated Ilmenite), Titanium Tetra Chloride and converting the waste iron oxide in to bricks (towards zero waste technology) for building purpose.
Originally, a rare earth mineral separation plant till 80’s, KMML began its prestigious pigment production with a licensed capacity of 48000 MT per year and the plant had an installed capacity to produce 22,000 MT Per year. The effort for debottlenecking and incremental expansion in the past years became a reality in 2005 and the installed capacity was declared as 40,000 MT per annum.
Recently, KMML-ISRO-VSSC entered into an MOU for the production of Titanium Metal/sponge which is considered to be a milestone in the history of KMML.
