Task

Development and manufacture of flocculating agents and additives for treating industrial waste water

Initial situation

A company founded in 1996 specialises in the stabilization and handling of process waste water, for example in the galvanisation industry.

From the start, the business concept looked as if our client would want to specialise in services and the plant construction (metering technology). The necessary chemicals were to be developed externally by partner companies and produced there.

Our client only had basic knowledge of the chemical formulations. On this basis, we were asked to become the partner for complete chemicals.

Description of services

Based on the client’s basic knowledge, own industry knowledge and generally accessible information sources e.g. raw materials suppliers, we have developed approximately 70 products for our client over the years. Using expert applied knowledge, our clients performed practical experiments, and we used the results of these to optimise their products even further.

Today we manufacture all chemical products for our client according to formulations that we have developed together. The technical manufacturing of this product is the sole responsibility of URSA CHEMIE.

Our service also includes the implementation of all legal requirements, e.g. the creation of safety data sheets and official production registration documents for our clients.
