Complex chemical behavior under demanding process conditions negatively impacts performance

Rudimentary understanding of chemical behavior and related phenomena result in weak designs including sub-optimal pilot plants. Low yields and high manufacturing costs are often due to poor asset integrity created by scaling, fouling and corrosion and sub-optimal materials selection while the inability to eliminate toxins from disposed water, waste and air emissions introduces regulatory compliance risks.


Increase design quality, operations efficiency and sustainability

The ability to characterize complex chemistry behavior under a wide range of operating conditions coupled with deep domain knowledge of applications unlocks significant business value.
