AIP Research

An Introduction to AIP Research

AIP’s Research division is home to AIP’s analysis, research, and product, process and technological development activities for the organization’s broad areas of activity.

With a broad range of analytical techniques, we perform both chemical
analyses, and chemical, pharmaceutical and agricultural research. We do this
to enhance and develop our own products and businesses as well as those of
third parties. Our laboratory offers a comprehensive and versatile range of
equipment needed to achieve your goals.

Utilizing our extensive research/analyses facilities and its team carrying over
30 years of experience in the development of (chemical) processes, industrial
plants and specific products, AIP’s team is always ready to be of service for the
comprehensive research projects of its customers and partners.

Ranging from globally operating firms to individuals; AIP Research is the optimal partner for the development and implementation of innovative solutions.

Core Values

30+ years experience

Dedicated Support

State of the art processing

Environmentally Friendly Products

Continuous Innovation

High quality products

On the one hand, AIP Research has developed multiple extensive industrial process solutions, varying from the discovery and implementation of the route from glycerol to methanol process for a bio-methanol plant (BioMCN), to process treatment plants transforming different types of process water to surface water.

On the other hand, AIP Research has used its capabilities for the development of personal healthcare products, chemical-free pharmaceutical products, sustainable infrastructure and living projects and more.

AIP Research offers you analyses, research and technology. Chemistry and agriculture are the basis of our laboratory, while it has also extensive experience in the fields of green chemistry and green energy. The lab has a wide range of appropriate equipment. We continue to invest in new analytical techniques and equipment. To further enhance the range & quality of our solutions we collaborate with other laboratories.
