Transporting biological and chemical materials - what you need to know

Article | July 14, 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 | June 6, 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 | August 8, 2022

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.

Tampa fire rescue working to clean up after chemical spill

Tampa | February 20, 2019

Tampa Fire Rescue officials responded to a hazmat situation Wednesday morning on Columbus Drive. According to a press release, a tanker trunk was transferring a cleaning chemical to another storage tank, which caused a chemical reaction and spill from the top of the holding tank. Residents next to the complex were moved to another place while crews cleaned up the spill, and the leak was stopped by 9:20 a.m. The shelter order was lifted, and residents were allowed back shortly thereafter. Two workers were seen at the hospital for observation following the spill, but there were no reported injuries. Crews are working to neutralize and clean up the chemicals, and there is currently no threat to the surrounding area or public, fire rescue officials say.

A catalyst for ‘greener’ hydrogen production

The Chemical Engineer | January 14, 2019

A RESEARCHER at the University of Delaware (UD), US has patented a process that could enable greener production of hydrogen. The process uses electricity and a copper-titanium (Cu-Ti) catalyst to make hydrogen from water. Hydrogen is an energy carrier and can be used to power fuel cells in vehicles, buildings, and other infrastructure. It can also be used to upcycle biomass, such as straw and grasses, into high-value chemicals to produce a range of products, such as plastics, paint, and personal care items. However, using hydrogen for these purposes is challenged by the unsustainable methods required for hydrogen production. Currently, the main processes for production use fossil fuels and produce carbon dioxide.

NGOs demand release of REACH studies submitted as confidential under TSCA

Chemical Watch | December 20, 2018

A coalition of NGOs has filed a public records request demanding the release of REACH studies submitted to the US EPA under TSCA that are being withheld as confidential. And the NGO action could represent an early test to the EPA's interpretation of what types of information can be protected as CBI under the law. At issue is the first of ten draft risk evaluations issued under the reformed TSCA, which focuses on pigment violet 29. Released to some controversy last month, the draft proposes to conclude that the substance does not pose an unreasonable risk to human health or the environment.
