Research and Innovation have always been at the heart of our DNA. As part of the first exchanges under confidentiality agreement, an in-depth analysis of the customer’s request is carried out, in order to establish detailed specifications that meet the technical and economic constraints of the project.
A research service is proposed when the resolution of the customer problem requires the development of new formulations, the evaluation of alternative technological pathways, and the need to conduct exploratory work prior to the production of the first laboratory batches.
The service provided consists of 3 successive steps:
- Feasibility study / Proof of concept (evaluation of different technical approaches, testing of several formulations and production of samples at the laboratory scale, analysis and characterization of the samples produced, assessments and recommendations);
- Optimization / Validation of the developed process (adjusting key operating parameters, producing demonstration batches on a pilot scale, studying change of scale);
- Transfer to a semi-industrial or industrial scale (assistance in scaling up to industrial production, internalized or outsourced)
