What does it take to implement a successful chemical process?
Chemical processing – the simplest of terms – is a method or means of changing one or more chemicals or chemical compounds. This change can happen by itself or by force from the outside. Where the challenge lies is how to implement a successful chemical process. Do you have the right people? Do you have the right technology?
Developing a successful chemical process requires the interplay of multiple disciplines, capabilities, creative thinking, and infrastructure. And this interplay is exactly what we pride ourselves on at MATRIC | Mid-Atlantic Technology Research & Innovation Center. Our chemists, engineers, technicians and scientists have participated in the development of processes starting from the first small-scale laboratory experiments… all the way to full-scale commercial operational units.
Our expertise includes, but is not limited to:
- Process conceptualization and simulation
- Techno-economic analysis
- Process chemistry
- Health, safety, environment
- Process scale-up
- Analytical chemistry
- Chemical separations
- Risk mitigation strategies
Additionally, we have world-scale infrastructure in place in the form of pilot plants. The combination of our people, our expertise, our infrastructure, and our critical-thinking capabilities enables us to help our customers accelerate technology discovery, development and design every day – so they can advance critical objectives in business and society. It’s all part of our company mission: “Market-Driven Innovation”.
