What our customers say
Reducing analytical lab budgets during the assessment process to eliminate design of experiments
A global chemical company wanted to create new materials for its polymer platform and tasked chemist James Elmont with the project. The project involved finding and evaluating high performance, costeffective and biodegradable polymers within budget.
Global diversified chemicals company updates automation systems and saves investment costs
After a process hazard analysis, a diversified chemicals company believed that an upgrade of automation systems was needed. However, using the comprehensive resources in Knovel, the engineer in charge could successfully implement a second assessment that showed the expensive upgrade could be avoided.
