We have a track record of delivering bottom line business benefits. We have extensive first-hand experience of the development of commercial chemical processes. Whilst our involvement typically spans Technology Readiness Levels 1-7 we have also been involved in later stage development as well as supporting existing processes. As such we pride ourselves on being able to identify opportunities, design and execute critical experiments and work with process engineers and commercial colleagues to carry out techno-economic assessments and shepherd new projects through typical stage-gate type processes.
Whilst the majority of our work has been focussed on chemistry/catalysis we have also shown our expertise can be applied very beneficially elsewhere for example in the area of energy storage where we have adapted our methods to shed valuable light on critical elements such as the highly reactive lithium anode with our partners Oxis Energy.
Another example would be the utilisation of our skills in high pressure chemistry to carry out biotransformations at elevated pressures with our partners at Ingenza and the University of Dundee. We have also delivered paper based landscape studies on diverse topics including advances in energy conversion.
“We value our collaboration with the group; not only have they brought to bear their considerable and complementary technical expertise but have shown an open minded willingness to get involved in areas of technology entirely new to them. Together we have rapidly generated exciting new results.”
