why we do what we do.

Chemistry is the core of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. These industries produce life-changing and life-saving products. To become these products, complex side streams are generated during the processes. These streams, containing a mixture of toxic organics, metals, and APIs, are not just easy to process. Unfortunately, linear destruction is a common way of processing, for example, transport for incineration is considered the best available technology at this time. And that’s where Inopsys will make a difference. 

The fact is that all these flows could be recycled. Imagine; we are facing global water scarcity, and yet streams are integrally burned and wasted, in a polluting way besides. All this, while both the water and the contained valuable elements can be recovered. So, our commitment is to ensure that side streams no longer get regarded as waste, but as a product that deserves a new life.

how we work.

 

Our solutions are based on an in-depth analysis of your specific challenge. Our chemists will start to obtain an applicable technology, which usually is an innovative hybrid system, a combination of different technologies. As a result of this research, we first provide a proof of concept. Afterward, you’ll meet our team of engineering. They will eventually ensure that the mobile unit gets built, operated, and maintained on-site. We work this all out in co-operation with the relevant people in your organization. 

Thanks to our modular and mobile solution we’re able to provide our product by a CAPEX-free business model, which means only pay per use of the installation. In summary: we design, build, finance, operate, and maintain the process. 

(fine)chemical & pharmaceutical production.

Productions where the active component, the essence of the product, is created. Possible challenges:

•    Toxic organics
•    API’s (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) 
•    Steroids/hormones
•    Surfactants 
•    Solvent/water
•    Solvents
•    Catalyst (metals)
•    Anorganics

application formulation.

Productions where the active compound gets mixed with other components to become the final product.
Possible challenges:

•    Toxic organics 
•    API’s
•    Surfactants 
•    Additives

micropollutants.

What happens after the biological treatment is a recently known problem, for both industrial and municipal streams. Our R&D department has a team working on research of micropollutants such as PFAS and EDC’s.

advantages
of working
with inopsys

<b>MOBILE &<br/>MODULAR</b>

MOBILE &
MODULAR

Our solutions consist of different combined technologies, each engineered as a separate module. The final solution is a composition of the relevant modules built up in one or more container units. In that way we are flexible in construction and the units can be brought on-site easily.

On top, we are able to adapt changes within a process or new productions and the units can be moved between the different production sites of customers.

 

<b>SELECTIVE<br/>REMOVAL</b>

SELECTIVE
REMOVAL

Side streams like wastewater and used solvent streams contain a mixture of compounds. Not all these organics are toxic, non-biodegradable and/ or persistent. Our focus is to provide a solution that has a high removal efficiency and a low energy consumption. In case of toxic organics or API’s, only the problem causing component is removed and the water with remaining organics can be treated in the wastewater treatment plant.

 

<b>CAPEX FREE<br/>PAY-PER-USE</b>

CAPEX FREE
PAY-PER-USE

We understand that the treatment of a side stream is not the core activity of your business, that’s ours. We are aware of the difficulty of return on investment for a side stream that is generated for perhaps a couple years. That is why we provide our solutions “pay-per-use”, so customers don’t have to invest themselves. It’s the joy of achieving more by reducing costs.

 

<b>WE TAKE CARE<br/><i>DBFOM</i></b>

WE TAKE CARE
DBFOM

Our goal is to provide our customers an alternative for transport and incineration of side streams. It is often a challenging process but handling the complexity and high demand for purification is our core focus.

To begin, we help to define the scope. Then our R&D team takes care of screening, analysis, and development. Later on, the engineering team makes sure the solution gets built and up and running. We take care of the whole process in a full Design – Built – Finance – Operate – Maintain model.
