What are Fine Chemicals & Why you should Outsource its Production

Article | March 25, 2020

Fine chemicals are those which are produced with a very high standard of purity and are intended for use in specialized applications. If you are starting a new company or investing into the development phase of a new product, outsourcing the production really makes good sense. This safeguards you and your business from the financial losses suffered out of halting the production of a product unevenly. A single substance created with the assistance of chemical reactions, which is additionally integrated into highly evolved applications is called a fine chemical. In contrast to bulk chemicals that are produced in large quantities, fine chemicals are produced in small batches because of their specialized nature. They are mainly used as starting materials for pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals & biopharmaceuticals.

Improving 3D Chemical Visualization of Subsurface Structures

Article | March 25, 2020

A Raman microscope combines a Raman spectrograph and a light microscope to gain chemical and structural information from materials down to the micron scale. Raman spectroscopy observes when the wavelength of light changes as it interacts with a molecule. The different wavelengths seen in Raman scattering can identify and study vibrational, rotational, and bending forces within chemical bonds of a molecule.

THE BUSINESS CASE FOR SUSTAINABILITY IN THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY IN 2020 & BEYOND

Article | March 25, 2020

Sustainability fervor – which has been building in importance over the past few years – has reached a new height in 2020. Chemical industry leaders made lofty statements at the World Economic Forum in Davos about the importance of engaging in sustainable development. Despite that, the chemicals industry is big, conservative, and typically slow to move. This raises the question: "What factors will really force change in the chemicals industry, and what does that change look like?" In this blog, we examine three possible drivers of change – carbon taxes, investor pressure, and supply chain pressure – and discuss their possible implications. We specifically focus on chemical companies, as highly carbon-intensive industries like cement and steel face a very different picture with respect to sustainability challenges.

Closing the loop: Real-time measurement of oil in water for process facilities

Article | March 25, 2020

When an oilfield’s reservoir pressure is depleted during primary recovery, additional oil can be recovered by recycling the produced water and injecting it back into the reservoir. Water management is critical for such water and water-alternating-gas (WAG) floods. In its Permian basin operations, Occidental recovers, recycles, and re-injects large volumes of water for its enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations. With real-time monitoring of oil in water (OiW) delivering reliable and continuous data, Occidental identified a way to optimize the recovery process and is working with NOV to expand the use of OiW monitoring equipment.
