ICL Discovers New Uses for Waste Compounds with Better Data Connections
Repurposing waste chemicals promotes sustainable R&D practices. ICL, a global manufacturer of products based on unique minerals, needed to identify new applications for their manufacturing waste compounds as part of the company’s circular economy strategy.
“We wanted to find commercially sustainable uses for our byproducts, helping to reduce waste and make our production processes more efficient,” explains Aviad Karniel, Operations Manager for ICL’s Central R&D Facility. “We needed a research solution that would generate answers quickly.”
