From Molecule to production


Founded in 2002 by engineers coming from the chemical industry, Processium is an independent company employing about forty collaborators and specialized in design, development and optimisation of processes for chemical and biotechnological industries. Processium provides services for the biggest industrial companies and also supports the industrialisation of projects coming from innovative start-up.

Processium is located on the scientific campus of Lyon (Rhone Valley, France) and is surrounded by some of the best research laboratories with which Processium collaborates regularly.

Processium has high-level team of experts, laboratories dedicated to analysis, measurements and laboratory scale pilot units. Processium participates actively, in particular within the framework of collaborative research projects, in miscellaneous European technical and business clusters and associations.

Processium has created in 2014 a subsidiary located on the scientific campus of Unicamp (São Paulo State, Brazil), and strengthens its commercial presence worldwide. This development comes along with Processium new premises which locate in the same place its team of experts and enhance its technical means with, in particular, a new technological and demonstration hall which allow Processium to validate experimentally the processes, to produce samples and to accommodate the pilots of its customers.
