About us

The cluster promotes the expansion and business development of the associated companies through innovation, knowledge sharing and compliance with European regulations. We are committed to becoming a reference at national level, serving as a reference point for cooperation projects to solve hygiene problems in tourism, both for tourism enterprises and for knowledge centres and institutions promoting innovation.

Our objective is to consolidate the knowledge of companies in the chemical sector through academic and technology research, to promote the implementation of Industry 4.0 throughout the value chain of the companies that constitute the cluster, to find effective solutions to minimise the environmental impact of the sector, and to identify external actors with whom to cooperate in identifying projects and solving hygiene problems in the tourism sector.

We further envisage the expansion of the chemical companies in the cluster with collaborators, the promotion of alliances and horizontal integration between the cluster members, and the finding of synergies between cluster members to help them collaborate.

Achievements

Together with the Government of the Balearic Islands and UIB University, CliQIB has promoted the creation of the scientific infrastructure AGUALAB,a research and training centre aimed at creating and disseminating knowledge related to water management in swimming pools and SPAs. This new infrastructure will be an instrument for demonstrating and validating innovative technology in all areas of swimming pool and spa management, and to raise the competition of chemical companies in the tourist related sector (sensor technology, water saving (re-routing water to the pool, purification for irrigation, introduction into the grey water circuit), remote control of water quality, etc....). We are currently seeking innovative project ideas and partners. It is foreseen that AGUALAB will start operations in 2023.
