From Concept to Commercial Production
These four steps of process development are typically necessary to effectively scale a concept into full production
Steve Donen, Rivertop Renewables
Chemical technology is in a state of constant innovation and evolution that is being spearheaded by laboratory researchers across the world. Within the past decade, research specific to “green” or bio-based chemicals has gathered funding and momentum as broad-based opinion has shifted toward themes such as sustainability, renewables and conservation. This momentum has impelled advances in green chemistry that are resulting in new products and applications in bioplastics, resins, cleaning supplies, corrosion inhibition and much more as industries look for more economically and environmentally sustainable solutions for the future.
Assuming market demand is developed and validated, this article discusses the four steps that are generally necessary to effectively scale a concept into full production: 1) proof of concept; 2) laboratory testing; 3) pilot-scale or semi-works development; and 4) commercial production....
