Krimelte's product development project

Support measure: Support for enterprises’ product development COVID-19 for the period 2014-2020
Project period: 1.10.2020-31.7.2023
The project includes the following product developments:

  1. More human- and environmental-friendly products in the context of current growing market expectations.

The objective is to develop products with a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) content and products made from raw materials that are safer for humans and the environment, which meet the ever-tightening expectations/thresholds on different export markets. The development and registration of products that meet the requirements for registrations EC1+, M1, BvB, Sintef, Basta, etc. The outcome will be seven new products with a lower VOC content that have been developed taking into consideration increasingly stringent legislation and restrictions on various chemical compounds.

  1. Fire-resistant products and products with enhanced reaction to fire. 

The objective is to develop new products that improve the fire resistance of existing construction materials and structures. The outcome will be six new products that improve the fire resistance of structures and various structural units.

  1. Development of one-component and fast-setting polyurethane foam.

The objective is to develop one-component and fast-setting polyurethane foams that accelerate construction operations and thus reduce costs and the environmental footprint. The outcome will be two new one-component polyurethane foams.

The amount of support allocated by Enterprise Estonia is EUR 477,933.75.

The project is supported from the funds of the European Regional Development Fund.

 

Krimelte’s investment in resource efficiency

 

Brief summary of the project
In the course of the investment, Krimelte OÜ will purchase a new cartridge mould for joint sealants, automate the installation of protective gloves inserted in the cap of construction foam cylinders and reconstruct the substation. Krimelte OÜ will make production more efficient by reducing the use of raw materials and energy through the introduction of new technologies. Energy consumption will reduce by 1% and the cost of reactive energy will disappear. Furthermore, Krimelte OÜ is reducing the quantity of outsourced cartridges and will produce more on their own.

Objective and outcome of the project
The objective of the project is to install a new and more economical device instead of the current cartridge mould, to automate the insertion of gloves, and to reduce the consumption of reactive energy and electricity. As a result of the project, there will be less wastage, which will reduce the use of raw materials per unit of production. Furthermore, the introduction of new equipment reduces the electricity consumption, as the new devices are electrically more efficient than the old ones. On top of it all, there will be no costs associated with reactive energy.

The amount of support is EUR 192,500.00.
