Center for ENvironmental TEChnology
In size Centec is to a large manufacturer as a flea is to an elephant, or perhaps as a rowing boat to a super tanker. We are told that it takes 8 miles for a super tanker to stop. A rowing boat can stop and turn round in 8 seconds.

The flea is very nimble. So too is our small team of ”engineering chemists”. A new overnight idea, shared with colleagues in the morning, perhaps including a lab demo, is sometimes implemented before lunch. All our scaled-up processes are under continuous review. We have exceptional chemical and
engineering resources using our large range of
separations and evolve environmentally-friendly
engineered out in the lab – where we design our
flexible plant. Our strategy is to simplify
processes where the risks have been
plants! If we cannot find a way we won't do
the project – but we have a 100% success record of safe manufacturing over our 15 years, based on over 100 collective man-years of relevant research and of engineering batch scale-ups.
