From the Paper:

"Goal Definition: Currently our company holds the patent and all the legal rights to sell certain kind of polymers that are used through out the world by construction companies and other building development projects. The problem that we are facing is that our company sells these products to bigger manufacturers that only dilutes our products and sells it the end customer at higher margins. Plus being a big brand they are able to sell it at those prices and get good price quotes from us. Goal of the Redwood project is to manufacture the diluted product that is thoroughly tested and readily accepted by the end-user. The idea is to fully utilize the patents and technology that Chemical Highway already processes."
