In a close-run contest, Liverpool ChiroChem today won the grand final of the Merseyside Innovation Awards!
The chemical manufacturers scooped up the win amidst hot competition from Fusion Implants and Fumecare Limited, with judges remarking that it was one of the toughest decisions they have ever had to make.
ChiroChem impressed the assembly with statistics showing the advantages of their innovative synthesis process over existing alternatives. Dr. Paul Colbon, representing the University-of-Liverpool-based team, explained how their approach to creating "chirally pure" chemicals dramatically cuts the toxic waste output while improving production purity and reducing the number of manufacturing steps.
All were impressed with the organisation's courageous choice to turn a research and development concept into a commercial reality for Merseyside.
