Institute of Process Research and Development

The Institute of Process Research and Development (iPRD) offers one-of-a-kind and world-class facilities and expertise in process chemistry, and particles and crystals engineering.

Established in 2008, the iPRD brought together experts from the fields of process chemistry and chemical engineering who work closely with the chemical industries to develop technologies which delivered cost reductions, quality benefits, increased productivity and reduce waste and energy utilisation in product manufacture.  

Our team are highly experienced in working in the fine chemical and pharmaceutical sectors and are able to offer companies of all sizes focused, contract-based services for problem solving, process understanding, development of new process technologies, small-scale manufacture, training and consultancy.
