Brenntag, the global market leader in chemicals and ingredients distribution, has expanded its Innovation & Technology Center Household, Industrial & Institutional Cleaning (HI&I) located within the Barcelona University Campus, offering lab services to Brenntag’s business partners throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art technology allowing performance tests of a wide range of products as well as the formulation development of cleaning products using specific design tools to achieve the best results.
“Our job is focused on new concepts and ideas for all categories of cleaning formulations from reducing the raw material costs to improving the performance of the products”, said Patricia López, Head of Innovation & Technology HI&I EMEA at Brenntag, who oversees the new facility with her team.
Clients will be able to react faster and better to rapidly changing market trends and demands that come with increasing technical and regulatory requirements. Products can also be adapted to consumers’ sensitivity about the sustainability of the detergent that they use.
Franz Fischer, Director Industry Market HI&I EMEA at Brenntag: “With our Functional Solutions we offer more than just a product. We add value by developing new product formulations for and together with customers using the broad range of specialty ingredients in our product portfolio. Customers appreciate that Brenntag can speed up the process for new product launches by having access to an application lab and experienced technical staff in close proximity to their markets.”
