The Battelle Memorial Institute is a private not-for-profit applied science and technology development company headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. The institute opened in 1929 but traces its origins to the 1923 will of Ohio industrialist Gordon Battelle which provided for its creation. Originally focusing on contract research and development work in the areas of metals and material science, it has since expanded its scope to defense, energy, environmental, transportation and health and life sciences. It is the world's largest independent consulting, research and development organization. Battelle has played a major role in the development of projects including the Xerox process, Snopake correction fluid, Universal Product Code and compact disc digital storage.It also operates one of the few labs in the United States capable of producing dry powder anthrax.cite web|url=http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/18/washington/18anthrax.html?ref=us|title=Senator, Target of Anthrax Letter, Challenges F.B.I.
