Exploring the deep ocean, the last frontier of the Earth, and utilizing seafloor mineral resources!

Ocean Resources Research Center for Next Generation (ORCeNG) at the Chiba Institute of Technology focuses on researches of seafloor mineral resources using the cutting-edge geoscience approaches. We aim to create a future society where people and nature are in harmony through the exploration and development of these environmentally friendly resources such as rare earth elements-rich mud and ferromanganese nodules in the deep sea, the last frontier of the Earth.
