Transporting biological and chemical materials - what you need to know

Article | June 6, 2022

The landscape of biological and chemical logistics has changed rapidly - as have the regulatory frameworks around it. What has not necessarily kept pace is the end-user understanding of the nature of these logistical processes, their opportunities and their constraints. Twenty years ago, the transmission of biological and chemical materials was limited to a small range of organisations: usually national and international research companies, hospitals, major university departments, police and military departments with forensic responsibilities.

Setting record straight on testing harm in chemicals

Article | August 2, 2022

The modern world is built on chemicals, be it the medicines we use, or cleaning fluids, crop protection products, or the raw materials for everything from laptops and mobile phones to clothes and furniture. Across all, we have created an entire modern society with chemicals, and, as a result, constantly stretched the size of the world population we can feed, clothe and shelter. Yet, balancing all the gains from the modern chemistry around us against any negative environmental and human impact has been a rising concern, making for ever greater focus on testing and on risk assessment.

Why chemical characterization is the best way to assess patient risk

Article | July 22, 2021

Everyone is very familiar with the phrase when buying a house: All that really matters are three things - location, location, and location. This same principle applies to extractables and leachables chemistry analysis – the three things that truly matter are identification, identification, and identification. The greatest growth in the past ten years in demonstrating the safety of medical devices and container closure systems for drugs has been using analytical chemistry to determine what chemicals can leach from the device and what the patient is exposed to during its intended use.

How Chemical Companies Benefit from the Experience Economy

Article | February 10, 2020

To feel or experience from a business engagement started with customer experience mainly in the consumer products business. Today it has extended to even knowledge industries like the chemical industry where experiencing or feeling can be leveraged to include all stake holders from customers primarily to employees to supply chain people & suppliers and all else. With digital technologies this has become easier than before. The benefits from promoting the ‘feel’ or ‘experience’ emotion could be multifarious for the chemical industry as described in this article.

Pembina Pipeline Announces Agreement with Marubeni Corporation to Develop a Low Carbon Ammonia Project and Outlines Vision

businesswire | June 06, 2023

Pembina Pipeline Corporation is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement ("MOA") with Marubeni Corporation ("Marubeni"), to progress an end-to-end, low-carbon ammonia supply chain from Western Canada to Japan and other Asian markets (the "Project"). The Project includes the joint development of a world-scale, low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia production facility (the "Facility") to be sited on Pembina-owned lands adjacent to its Redwater Complex in the Alberta Industrial Heartland near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. "This project represents a transformative opportunity that is highly aligned with Pembina's strategic priorities, including supporting global decarbonization efforts by exporting low-carbon energy derived from natural gas responsibly produced in Western Canada," said Stu Taylor, Pembina's Senior Vice President & Corporate Development Officer. "The Project is an example of Pembina's ability to leverage its existing asset base and core competencies to develop new integrated value chains, including carbon capture, utilization and storage ("CCUS") and low-carbon energy such as hydrogen, and ammonia as a hydrogen carrier and fuel source. Marubeni has deep expertise in areas critical to the success of the Project and we are delighted to be working with them to facilitate the global movement towards greater use of low-carbon ammonia and to support Japan's decarbonization strategy." Demand for low-carbon ammonia in Japan and other Asian markets is expected to grow substantially given its efficiency as a carrier of hydrogen and use as a low-carbon fuel source. Ammonia is one of the most widely produced synthetical chemicals in the world today and the production technology and handling are well understood and established. Alberta is the leading region in Canada for existing ammonia production and the Project is another opportunity to support development of a hydrogen and low-carbon economy. "The Project will leverage access to existing infrastructure and benefit from Canada's abundant natural gas supply, advantaged West Coast shipping access to Asia, and growing carbon capture and sequestration industry. Pembina has a long history and strong reputation as a leading Canadian energy infrastructure provider and we are honoured to be working together as partners in the establishment of a low-carbon fuel supply chain from Canada to Japan," said Yoshiaki Yokota, Marubeni's Chief Executive Officer, Energy & Infrastructure Solution Group. Initial feasibility studies have been completed and the Facility has an anticipated design capacity of up to 185 kilotonnes per annum of low-carbon hydrogen production, which will be converted into approximately one million tonnes per year of low-carbon ammonia. The Facility is contemplated to utilize innovative technology to capture a significant amount of the CO2 emissions with the potential for integrated transportation and sequestration on the proposed Alberta Carbon Grid being developed by Pembina and TC Energy. The low-carbon ammonia would be transported via rail to Canada's West Coast and shipped to Japan and other Asian markets. Pembina and Marubeni will utilize their complementary strengths to develop and execute the Project. Pembina brings its expertise in Western Canadian energy infrastructure development, construction and operations, rail logistics and export. Marubeni, a globally leading independent power producer and integrated trading conglomerate, will leverage its marketing and marine logistics capabilities, and is expected to contract for offtake from the Facility, which will be used to supply Marubeni-owned and other Japanese utility power plants. Under the MOA, Pembina and Marubeni will focus on completing work critical to the development of the Project, including preliminary Front End Engineering Design ("pre-FEED"), engagement with various stakeholders, including governments in Canada and Japan, and commercial activities. The Project is expected to be structured as an infrastructure-style, fee-based business with investment grade counterparties. Pre-FEED work is currently expected to be completed by early 2024. Pembina Low Carbon Complex The Project would potentially serve as an anchor development to advance Pembina's ongoing efforts to establish a new growth platform known as the Pembina Low Carbon Complex ("PLCC"). With over 2,000 contiguous acres of undeveloped land located in the Alberta Industrial Heartland, Pembina's vision is to develop an industrial complex for low-carbon energy infrastructure to better enable Pembina and third parties to develop projects, while reducing costs, emissions, and risk. The PLCC will be focused on attracting and developing investment for innovative and emerging energy transition technologies, sustainable fuels, and chemicals, specifically low-carbon hydrogen and hydrogen carriers such as ammonia and methanol. Projects within the PLCC would gain access to one or more of the following prerequisites to enable the construction and operation of large-scale clean energy projects: land, low-carbon hydrogen, clean power, natural gas and industrial gases, water, CCUS, and the construction and operation of rail assets to support product movement. Within the PLCC, Pembina would lease land to third parties and provide infrastructure, logistics, and shared services to tenants, depending on their needs, under typical Pembina commercial models. Tenants are contemplated to capture CO2 and direct those emissions to Pembina in support of the proposed Alberta Carbon Grid. Pembina may also consider direct investments in projects. Commercial discussions are progressing with various potential tenants and strategic partners and Pembina looks forward to providing future updates. About Pembina Pembina Pipeline Corporation is a leading energy transportation and midstream service provider that has served North America's energy industry for more than 65 years.
