AECOM Process Technologies has the resources and experience to guide your concept or technology through the entire development cycle: from proof-of-concept through commercial deployment.

Process Technologies has a recognized history of advancing state-of-the-art technologies from conception to commercialization. For more than four decades, our engineers and scientists have played a vital role in advancing technologies across numerous industries. For the past two decades, we have excelled at seamlessly expanding our capabilities from research and development (R&D) to detailed design.

We have built our reputation on our repeated ability to develop thorough understandings of processes and our clients’ needs. We know that it is through the establishment of such a foundation, along with meticulous planning and execution, that we can most effectively navigate the obstacles associated with technology commercialization. Whether we are developing our own technology positions or working with technology providers, the process largely remains the same.

Process Technologies has vast experience evaluating and optimizing third-party technologies, and have partnered or worked with several prominent technology providers and research organizations. Our ability to seamlessly integrate R&D with detailed design and ultimately procurement and construction allows us to advance technology at a fast pace without sacrificing quality. Our experience and perspectives keep us focused on the commercialization objectives. We understand the need to develop a process that can be economically implemented and safely and reliably operated.
