Production Improvement Projects
Ceramicx has over the years being involved in a number of production improvement projects. The first of these improvement projects with in the mid-90’s with a number of European partners. This was known as Eucopet and is described in more detail below. There was then a period where Ceramicx was involved in a number of commercial projects. A lot of production gains were made during this period but they were made in small increments and were not done under the umbrella of a project.
In recent years Ceramicx has returned to production and cost improvement projects in a serious way. We have had 4 Innovation partnerships thus far; 2 with the University of Limerick and two with Trinity College Dublin. Ceramicx also held the founding SME directorship of ICMR and I²E² but have since resigned that position due to time commitments.
