TAMI has created a state of the art campus with advanced research, analytical and testing laboratories, GMP compliant facilities, a modern mini-pilot and pilot plants for process development.
  • TAMI is focused on six major categories of activity:
  • TAMI prides itself on its dedicated team of researchers who co-operate on a cross disciplinary basis as required to develop a project from its conception as "paper chemistry" all the way to the stage where it can be implemented on a full-scale industrial level.
  • TAMI ensures that from start to finish of a project, safety and the environment receive full consideration.
  • TAMI has ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and SI OHSAS 18001 approval from the Standards Institution of Israel.
  • R&D for ICL companies in the fields of fire retardants, organic intermediates, biocides, fertilizers, oil field chemicals, ore beneficiation and extraction processes. These projects are frequently based on bromine, potash, phosphoric acid and magnesium.
  • CUSTOM R&D- projects related to development of novel processes for pharma and agro intermediates, including chiral compounds, advanced materials and waste water treatment. These services are offered to clients world-wide.
  • R&D AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT of projects based on innovative and novel technologies either initiated by the TAMI researchers, acquired from local academic institutions and technical incubators or initiated by Israel Chemicals product development units.
  • ANALYTICAL AND TESTING SERVICES - including Biocide, Microbiology, Corrosion and Plastics Applicative Laboratories. Some of these laboratories provide tests under ISO/IEC 17025 certification and provide advanced services in a wide range of tests including for registration support. The QC Pharma and the Biocides Laboratories are GLP approved and carry out analytical, microbiological and stability studies in a wide range of applications.
  • SAMPLE PREPARATION - The flexibility of the TAMI pilot and small scale facilities enable us to offer sample preparation for evaluation including preparation under cGMP guidelines. Our clients include some of the largest chemical and pharmaceutical companies.
  • WATER AND WASTE TREATMENT - Survey, characterization and analysis of industrial waste streams, evaluation of recycling and neutralization technologies, biological treatment, effluent biodegradability testing, physico-chemical treatments (including evaporation, membrane technology, solvent extraction, absorption, flocculation/coagulation and crystallization), desalination, evaluation of biocidal efficacy and microbiology which are just a part of IMI TAMI activities in this sector.
