NanoPAT is being very active this spring as the work on the implementation of the PDW technology at the industrial NanoPAT partners is ongoing. The fist activity was on May 11th, when the UP/innoFSPEC team visited the industrial site of NanoPAT partner Evonik. You can read more about this activity here.
Last week, on May 24th, the UP/innoFSPEC team (Katlen Brennenstuhl, Sebastian Zimmermann, Marvin Münzberg and Anika Krause) visited the Covestro’s facilities in Waalwijk (Netherlands), within the framework of Case Study 1, monitoring particle formation of polyurethane dispersions and polyacrylate emulsions.
During their visit, the UP/innoFSPEC team visited Covestro’s R&D labs as well as their pilot and production plants and together with their colleagues from Covestro, they planned the technical implementation of PDW technology at Covestro’s R&D facilities to explore the full potential of PDW spectroscopy as a potential new PAT in the polymer production process.
