CPI’s chemistry experts come from diverse industry sectors, and work throughout the company’s National Centres to solve many of the issues being highlighted by the Royal Society of Chemistry. With decades of experience in helping to bridge the gap between innovation and commercialisation, CPI is well positioned to support to the Synergy programme.
A key output of the programme so far is a report on polymers in liquid formulations – for example those used in shampoos, detergents, inks and adhesives. The report highlights how companies can work together to solve the key challenges in this area, and reduce the costs associated with product and process development. CPI were crucial contributors to this forward-looking report.
Dr Jo Reynolds, Director of Science & Communities at the Royal Society of Chemistry, said: "Collaboration is absolutely key to advancing the chemical sciences, and to solving some of the most pressing problems facing the chemicals-using industries. I am very pleased that we are taking this next step forward. In signing a partnership with CPI, we hope to make even further progress in bringing together the right people to tackle these challenges."
Nick Johnson, Commercial Director at CPI, said: "The RSC’s Synergy programme provides a fantastic opportunity to tackle some of the common chemistry problems holding back many innovative companies. Following the programme’s spirit of collaboration, we are gladly supporting the RSC with our broad chemistry expertise, covering diverse sectors from agriculture to formulations."
