Organic Building Materials Division was established in with the responsibilities of generating, cultivating and promoting the latest developments through research and developments in the field of alternative sustainable building materials and composites for building applications using agro-industrial wastes, protective and decorative coatings, sealants, roofing materials etc. It is also putting its endeavor in the enhancement of interaction with building and construction industry for variety of activities on different organic building products. The Division has adequate expertise along with state-of-art infrastructuree for undertaking research and development programs on its own as well as on sponsorship basis in all the related areas of work. The Division is also working in the development of materials and techniques needed for the repair, retrofitting and protection of structures. Value added products and process development Recycling of plastic waste for building applications through through value added products development Agro-industrial waste utilization Protective and decorative coatings and finishes Sealants, adhesives and water proofing systems for building applications Health assessment of existing structures and preventive measures for service life enhancement.

Organic Building Materials
It is now widely recognized that the cost of housing can be reduced and speed and quality of construction stepped up through the use of emerging innovative building materials and technologies. Despite a number of innovative cost-effective building materials, components and construction techniques developed through research the housing and building agencies have not adopted them in their construction practices. The extent to which lack of standards and specifications has been instrumental in hindering the adoption of homegrown innovative building material technologies has long been a matter of concern. Since non-listing of these new techniques in Indian Standards and Codes is quoted as one of the foremost reasons by construction agencies for non- adoption in their practice, the Bureau of Indian Standards BIS has been constantly striving to cover new technologies within the fold of standardisation. While quite a few of new materials and techniques have attracted attention of the building industry and several housing agencies and have also been gradually identified in Codes of Practices, these have not percolated to the practices of organisations like CPWD, MES, State PWDs and others in public and private sectors.
