Research and Innovation have always been at the heart of our DNA. Following first discussions in complete confidentiality, an in-depth analysis of the customer problem is carried out in order to establish a detailed project specification, meeting the technical and economic constraints of the project.
The Contract Research service is offered when the resolution of the customer problem requires the design of new methods, the evaluation of alternative technological pathways, and the need to conduct exploratory work prior to the production of the first laboratory batches.
The service proposed consists of 3 successive stages:
- a feasibility study and proof of concept (evaluation of different technical approaches, testing of several formulations and production of samples at lab scale, i.e. 10’s-100’s g, analysis and characterization of the samples produced, conclusions and recommendations);
- the optimization and validation of the process developed (adjustment of key operating parameters, production of demonstration batches on a small pilot scale, scaling-up study, as a preamble to the industrialization and production steps);
- its transfer to a semi-industrial or industrial scale (assistance / support for scaling-up, internalized or externalized production).
