Research & Development

Industry has a need to invest in Research and Development of new products and technologies to maintain their competitiveness. We have a long term experience in R&D work from proposal writing to delivery, management and coordination of national and European funded research projects. The main objectives for future R&D work will be the development of new environmental technology including clean tech, recycling and low cost treatment technologies suitable for the industry.
