The laboratory was inaugurated by Dr. Ashish Lele, Director of the National Chemical Laboratory (NCL). Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Lele mentioned, “It is good to see organizations like Haber shifting their focus toward research & development and coming up with globally-competitive solutions in emerging areas such as the application of AI/ML (Machine Learning) tools in the chemical sector. It goes on to prove the technical capabilities of Indian companies.”
The opening of the new laboratory comes at an important time as the introduction of AI has become inevitable to achieve and catalyze optimal efficiency. Haber aims to boost its customers’ production and efficiency of paper mill processes through the use of AI.
To further the impact of AI, Haber has delved into chemical and sensor development with their new laboratory in Pune. Supported by an in-house team of industry experts, the research would be oriented toward formulating better chemistries that improve application performance. Equipped with the latest technology in sensor development, the laboratory also aims to further refine the data sampling and collection process. The end result – An optimized system of smart monitoring sensors and AI-incorporated products, their performance supplemented by chemicals fine-tuned to the required application.
