Every New Year is a fresh start for growth and opportunities. As we move into 2023, our team at Colour Synthesis Solutions (CSS) continues to build on the momentum we created in 2022. 

We have a lot of exciting things planned for the year and in this blog post, we’re sharing some highlights of our latest updates. 

Focusing on Sustainability

How can we make our business more environmentally friendly?

This is a question we’re asking ourselves and in 2023, one of our main focuses is answering it by focusing on sustainability.

In fact, our team worked tirelessly to create an Environmental and Sustainability Policy as well as an action plan that we’ll share more about in a future blog post. 

New Equipment, New Opportunities

This year, we’re expanding our capacity by installing new equipment in our Kilo Plant. The goal of these installations is to increase our small-batch production and hood capacity for our R&D projects. 

We’re excited to install a 100L vessel because not only will it help us expand our batch sizes, but it’ll also free up the 50L and 20L vessels for other projects. Stay tuned for more!
