We welcome this action plan and the collaborative approach between the Chemistry Growth Partnership (CGP) and government through which it has been produced. The CGP is the industry body which is working to deliver its chemistry fuelled growth vision with government. Our shared vision sees the sector’s contribution to the UK economy increase by 50% by 2030.

CHEMICAL SPILL PREVENTION

Article | February 28, 2020

When it comes to your workplace, nothing should be prioritized over the safety of your employees. As your greatest asset to your business, they should feel safe in their work environment. Maintaining a safe work environment is a particularly important consideration for companies who work with or store hazardous materials. And it is not only critical for the appeasement of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements but the well-being and safety of your employees. That’s why, in this article, we will discuss chemical spill prevention in your workplace facility.

Improving Pump Seal Reliability for Bay Area Petrochem Plants

Article | March 10, 2020

Keeping thousands of pumps in San Francisco Bay Area refineries running 24/7/365 requires a well-planned and well-executed maintenance strategy. Unplanned failures may have ramifications for safety, budget, and compliance—especially with regard to Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) regulations. One of the most mission-critical elements for smooth operations is pump seal reliability. Many plants run pumps outside the safe operating envelope and replace them only when economically feasible. Over time, however, you increasingly risk catastrophic downtime. Fortunately, you have the means to largely mitigate pump seal reliability problems with awareness and proactive management of conditions to improve safety and compliance.

Ensuring a Winning Strategy for Value Chain Optimization of the Refining and Petrochemical Industries

Article | March 24, 2020

The Refining and petrochemical industries have a projection to keep growing in the next two decades and companies that are investing in new technology today will be ahead of your competition in about 2 years. The digitalization of the value chain, also known as value chain optimization, is a complex task. Part of this complexity comes from the diversity of challenges that occurs in different areas of the value chain within each operation, as we addressed in the article Understanding the Refining and Petrochemical Value Chains to Drive Optimization. Many companies still fail to obtain economic return from their investment in digitalization and we presented the most common challenges in the article Challenges of Achieving Value Chain Optimization in the Refining and Petrochemical Industries. With so many challenges, how can businesses ensure they have a strategic digital transformation program that will successfully result in the optimization of your value chain?

A Coordinated Approach to Chemical Reactivity

Article | March 4, 2020

Atoms are gregarious by nature, escaping a solitary existence by forming chemical bonds with their neighbors. Chemical reactivity, in turn, depends on the degree of atomic “isolation”; a lonely atom will more readily interact and form bonds with others, as compared to its more “coordinated” counterparts that are chemically engaged with other atoms. This coordination concept plays a central role in our understanding of chemical and catalytic activity. What has been lacking to date, however, is a direct and quantitative measurement of the variation in chemical reactivity of atoms having different degrees of coordination.
