The objective of this project is to promote an easy development of chemical liquids formulations (such as cleaning solutions, automotive care products, paint, pharmaceutical and food formulations etc.), mainly for formulation industries in order to secure competitive and sustainable growth for SMEs.
This requires an expansion of the fundamental knowledge within the field. By systematically varying process and product variables by combining the two concepts high throughput screening (HTS) devices and t he concept of surfactant affinity difference (SAD) using multivariate data analysis a number of commercial and Industrial benefits will be targeted, such as:
(i) Rapid time to market for new novel products and processes, enabling custom made solution s. Rapid transition between discovery, development and implementation.
(ii) Minimizing manufacturing costs by an optimum choice of ingredients in the formulation, also involving alternative raw material feed stocks (environmentally acceptable), additive packages.
The strategy is to build an easily accessible knowledge base of properties and functions enabling for example an easy implementation of renewable components for use in chemical formulations, which can be used by SMEs. Positive results produced within this project will definitely allow substantial changes within the targeted industrial fields. The HTS and SAD concepts themselves are not the main goal, but combined they will constitute a toolbox for dramatic enhancements. TAILORLIQUID will make it possible to change the product easily on demand.
TAILORLIQUID will provide a toolbox of knowledge for a sustainable development as well as the quality of life. The SME has to meet increased demands for high quality products, continuous innovation and technological adaptations, as well as an intensification of competition on the European market. More important is to be able to make custom made solutions for small production series.
The intended transformation of industry towards knowledge bas ed organisations, with better conformity to sustainability, etc. will also be accelerated by strong academic, institute and industrial network associated to the selected TAILORLIQUID partners.
