The company has two main operational objectives:
- To develop and extend CDDM Technology CDDMtec has secured a strong portfolio of material, equipment and processing patents plus other Intellectual Property from Unilever that covers the core technology and applications. CDDMtec will maintain this IP and extend it to new application areas, incorporating improvements to the core technology as they occur.
- To establish and build businesses around application opportunities CDDMtec has already identified a number of opportunities and organised them into a portfolio of applications. Each opportunity is ranked according to technical and commercial criteria, with the most attractive then being subjected to a business development process. Each successful development will result in a fully invested and independent operational business with an application licence for CDDM technology and an exit strategy for CDDMtec. The exact form and structure of each business will depend on the nature of the opportunity.
