The Mid-Atlantic Technology, Research & Innovation Center (MATRIC) is a non-profit, contract research company that offers, among other things, pilot plant construction and operation as one of our core competencies. Building and operating a pilot plant is the natural step between bench top chemistry and commercial operation. It’s an opportunity to prove out the concept with conditions that closely match commercial operations, to study the impact of closing recycle streams, to collect scale-up data, etc.
