Solvay opens Shanghai ADL
Solvay has officially opened its application development lab in Shanghai. Housing some 30 scientists, engineers and technicians, it will seek to “advance custom-tailored application developments” using Solvay technologies, notably for the automotive, new energy, life sciences, smart devices and semiconductors.
Capabilities include an ‘innovation workshop’ featuring simulation, prototyping and performance evaluation services, plus process equipment, such as for 3D printing, extrusion and noise-vibration-harshness improvements. There will also be a semiconductor clean room environment for high-purity and high-temperature testing, separation capabilities for haemodialysis and water filtration applications, and a functional and industrial coatings facility.
