Our Vision: A global network recognized as the preferred source of material technology solutions for industrial process companies.
Our Mission: MTI maximizes member asset performance by providing global leadership in materials technology for industrial processing companies to improve safety, sustainability, reliability and profitability.
The mission serves as a guiding force to meet the needs of members in key processing industries such as Refining, Mining, Chemical Production, Energy Production, Semi-Conductor Manufacturing, Pulp and Paper, Food Processing and Pharmaceuticals. MTI meets these needs in the following ways:
Research and Development
Nonproprietary research and projects are conducted on selection, design, fabrication, testing, inspection and performance of materials used in the process industries. This research is focused on developing valuable new technologies and on transferring both new and existing knowledge to day-to-day practices.
MTI provides numerous opportunities for members to continue professional development through in-person and online training sessions, MTI books and reports, webinars and seminars.
Members have the ability to speak with other industry professionals 24/7 on the TAC Forum to capitalize on the expertise of member company representatives. MTI also offers several in-person networking opportunities such as TAC Meetings, Facility Tours, Training Sessions and Seminars. Members use their networking power to exchange information, leverage resources, develop new projects and find answers to crucial industry challenges.
The power of MTI’s expert network and years of research is used to influence the development and appropriate use of pertinent codes, standards and regulations.
MTI's Member Companies routinely compete with each other in their respective industries, and therefore it is possible that aspects of MTI's activities could raise legal issues under the U.S. Antitrust Laws. Violations could attract civil and criminal penalties, or lawsuits against MTI or Members. MTI's legal counsel has prepared Antitrust Guidelines available on the MTI Website, and these should be reviewed by each Member Representative.
Specific concerns include any discussion of prices, market allocations, or product distribution practices, and care should be taken with respect to descriptions or opinions expressed about specific products, companies or standards which could be applied in making purchasing decisions. MTI legal counsel is available to answer questions regarding any area of MTI's operations.
