Case Studies

TMO: Developing a Greener Alternative to Toluene

Our team tackled a pressing environmental challenge faced by a leading adhesive film manufacturer. Read more about how we developed a safer and greener alternative to the solvent toluene.

Problem Analysis


Before we design a solution, we believe it is crucial to fully understand the problem that needs solving.

In our initial analysis, we'll explore the complexities of your problem, taking into account the prevailing commercial, legislative and technological landscape alongside your business objectives.

By thoroughly assessing these factors against current competitor innovation, we lay the groundwork for identifying the most efficient and sustainable research strategies.

Feasibility Study


We believe in mitigating risks and maximising efficiency, so we use desk-based modelling techniques to provide preliminary evidence and assess the feasibility of potential solutions.

We also explore the availability of materials, assessing their accessibility and sustainability, evaluating the ecological impact and market viability of each potential solution.

This pragmatic approach minimises costs and accelerates the research timeline, ensuring that our efforts are focused on the most viable pathways.

Lab Research


Our exceptional lab research is conducted from a state-of-the-art facility in County Kildare, Ireland.

Research is carried out in close partnership with our clients, utilising a value-driven approach that allows us to target incremental outcomes, make informed decisions at each step, and ensure that the research trajectory is always in line with business requirements.

We believe that laboratory research does not have to be financially prohibitive; targeted quick-wins and external funding can generate commercial innovation within budget.

Four hexagons connected together



Leveraging the insights gained during lab research, we continue to work in close partnership with our clients to navigate the pitfalls of scalability, translating lab research into a scalable prototype.

Our process has been designed to bridge the gap between the laboratory phase and successful commercialisation.

We deliver a prototype for your evaluation alongside a comprehensive report describing the methods employed, analysis of product quality, process efficiency and key green chemistry metrics.

The journey from prototype to successful commercialisation is a critical phase for our clients, so we provide comprehensive support and guidance to transform chemistry solutions into marketable realities.

We work together to refine and optimise the prototype, ensuring it meets the necessary standards of scalability, efficiency, and sustainability.
