Case Studies

Commercialization of Carbon Blocks

Process Industries Consultants was called in by a major industrial supplier to develop a plan for the commercialization of carbon blocks (powdered carbon + thermoplastic resin), both from an economic and technical perspective.  Based on the open literature and Process Industries Consultants’ background in carbon block manufacture, a technical and economic study was developed demonstrating a viable path forward for the company.

Technical Assessment and Evaluation

Process Industries Consultants was requested by a Marketing Agency to develop, for a third party, a White Paper and Marketing Study on the future of remote sensing application – a technical assessment and an evaluation of future uses for both LIDAR and remote Optical sensors. Process Industries Consultants conducted research based on open literature to develop a multipage evaluation of both technologies, to assess both the technologies themselves and to demonstrate a path forward. This was presented to the client to guide his strategy.
