Today, rapid innovation and speed to market are a must for any industry. This is perhaps especially true in the consumer-packaged goods (CPG) space, where new chemical formulations are needed to satisfy constantly shifting market demands. Changing social norms, like going green, shrinking the chemical footprint and introducing more organics/natural products, create a constantly evolving environment. As such, the pace of R&D and innovation must keep up with market needs to ensure the development and production of successful chemical products.

Why QuickStart Chemical Management Can Save Your Assets

Article | February 27, 2020

The world of Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) IT systems is a vast one. Therefore, it cannot be stressed enough that organizations need to be nimble and armed with easy-to-deploy, interoperable, portable systems. Most mature organizations opt for a risk-based EHS management system framework designed to meet a continually evolving and dynamic business and operating model. A risk-based approach offers flexibility, within defined boundaries, for alternate solutions to risk management needs. Standard frameworks recommend mandatory controls when there is potential for high-consequence events. Moreover, risk control measures which have been proven effective and considered technically superior are increasingly used.

Why chemical characterization is the best way to assess patient risk

Article | February 11, 2020

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.

6 APPLICATIONS OF MACHINE LEARNING IN OIL AND GAS

Article | March 4, 2020

The issue of environmental sustainability is a major concern for governments and players from the oil and gas industry worldwide. The negative impacts as a result of activities carried out by oil and gas companies have been a major tool not only for the livelihood and health of people but more so to the environment, such as pollution. The risk of environmental pollution, hazards and severity can be and will be reduced with the use of machine learning and deep learning in the years to come. There has been an amazing application in chemical engineering, process safety, process control tuning, advanced dynamic and process optimization. We can see that the Oil and Gas industry when we talk about software especially machine learning solutions didn’t have any innovation in the last 15 years.
