what Agilent does in markets such as food safety, healthcare and the environment.  But we also made big news recently in the energy and chemical industry. Hydrocarbons are chemical compounds found in petroleum, crude oil and natural gas.  Hydrocarbon ethylene is the single most important organic chemical in the world, with 134 million tons produced every year.  Hydrocarbon propylene is not far behind, with 94 million tons produced every year. Why?  These chemicals are the main components in plastics, fibers, rubbers, explosives and industrial chemicals.  You could say that the energy and industry of the entire world depend on hydrocarbons.

Euric unveils Waste & chemicals brochure

Article | February 11, 2020

Recyclers have developed state-of-art separation techniques to safely treat a wide diversity of waste streams and recover valuable materials, hence directly contributing to the circular economy. The Brochure published by Euric on ‘Sound Management of Waste & Chemicals Requirements’ highlights the main issues derived from the lack of interface between chemicals, product and waste legislation, and identifies simple solutions to boost the transition towards a more circular economy. Christer Forsgren, Chair of the Euric’s Waste & Chemicals Task Force, Environmental & Technical Director at Stena Metall AB (Sweden), and Adjunct Professor in Industrial Material Recycling at Chalmers Technical University in Gothenburg, emphasized the key role that Europe’s recycling industry plays by reducing Europe’s dependency on primary materials and by saving massive amounts of CO2 and energy.

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.

Pulmonary toxicity – a challenge for drug and chemical development

Article | March 11, 2020

Despite the common assumption that adverse drug reactions only affect the kidney and liver, more than 600 medications inducing lung toxicity have been reported.1 Lungs are susceptible to toxicity due to their large surface area and metabolism of certain substances2, such as antibiotics and anti-inflammatories, and specialist drugs targeting the cardiovascular system and tumours. This has resulted in 4-10% of patients developing pulmonary toxicity.

Chemical Accidents Lead To Increase In Investigations

Article | February 17, 2020

In the last two years, the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) has launched investigations into seven separate chemical accidents or explosions in the Houston area. Prior to 2018, the CSB only conducted roughly one investigation per year. Investigators believe that the massive increase in accidents which require an investigation by the CSB is due to a variety of factors such as the large number of chemical companies in the Houston area, the age of the infrastructure, and companies being allowed to self-regulate. Many of these explosions and fires have directly led to the deaths of workers, bystanders, millions of dollars in property damage, and the evacuation of tens of thousands of local residents who risk being exposed to toxic chemicals.
