PROJECTS

Culgi B.V. operates on an international and trans-industrial level; its clients include corporate, governmental and academic partners. Yet Culgi B.V. does not only offer proprietary services; it is also proud to be involved in a number of high-profile scientific projects. Publically funded projects enable the company to foster an extensive academic network, while remaining at the forefront of applied science and technology.

The projects listed on this website have all supported the in-house development of new algorithms. These algorithms, which have been designed for various applications (materials science, pharmacy, applied thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, chemical adsorption, etc.) have in turn been fed back into the company’s workflow to develop improved solutions for the Culgi B.V. modelling toolkit.

A few industrial projects are discussed here in more depth:

  • Electronics industries: In collaboration with ASML and Philips we made a model for polymer film formation, to enable the design of chemical assisted lithography. Read more…
  • Materials industries: In collaboration with SABIC, we modeled the behavior of polymer composite materials, to enable design of new materials based on composition and processing. Read more…
  • Pharmaceutical industries: In collaboration with Eli Lilly and Company, we modeled vesicular drug delivery systems, to enable the design of improved drug delivery systems for badly soluble actives. Read more…
  • Petroleum industries: In collaboration with Shell, we modeled oil emulsions, to enable the design of better chemical mixtures for enhanced oil recovery. Read more…

Please note that the list of algorithms on this website is not exhaustive. Culgi B.V. can offer more solutions, but these cannot be listed publically on account of IP issues. Nevertheless, Culgi B.V. is always happy to discuss matters confidentially. Please also consult the survey of  European projects  listed on this website, that covers applications ranging from biomimetic materials to gas-selective membranes to nanocomposites.

Culgi B.V.’s computational platform incorporates all algorithms that are relevant to computational chemistry. The company offers different solutions for different areas of research. Examples of industries that currently profit from Culgi B.V.’s software are the pharmaceutical, the materials and the oil industry. Habitually, a single license allows a user to benefit from several different computational methods: a fast, regression-based method, a somewhat slower, quantum mechanical method, and a more laborious yet more precise method that chiefly relies on simulations.
