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.

When chemistry becomes intelligent

Article | March 5, 2020

Nowadays, artificial intelligence (AI) and computer programs have infiltrated almost every corner of our lives; from facial recognition, language translation, image and video production, to self-driving cars and personal care aides. Other applications that might not yet be mainstream knowledge have to do with scientific exploration and research and development. For example, AI has the potential to revolutionize medical practices through augmenting medical diagnosis and have found application in drug discovery. In many places, researchers have also attempted to use AI algorithms to manipulate biology, chemistry, and physics with different setup configurations that can detect DNA modifications caused during epigenetic regulation or gene mutation, choose the most optimal reaction pathways in synthesis, and search for exotic particles using adapted learning networks.

What the Coronavirus could mean for the global petrochemical industry?

Article | March 10, 2020

Coronavirus (covid-19) has developed rapidly and is already impacting significant parts of the global economy. Within this context the petrochemical industry is also being severely affected through short-term market uncertainties, pricing volatility and declining consumption in many of its key segments. The most visible outcome is emanating from China where economic activity has declined sharply in February and is forecast to remain low over the next few months. The effect of China’s economic slowdown is now resulting in consequences in other regions – “when china sneezes, the whole world catches a cold”.

What is Rate of Reaction and Why is It Important For The Chemical Industry?

Article | February 18, 2020

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the rate of reaction is the true lifeline of the chemical industry in India, and the whole world. A lower rate of reaction would mean, chemical manufacturers can produce products at much faster rates which gives them a great competitive advantage over others. The chemical industry strives to create a faster rate of reactions as it impacts revenue goals.
