However, there are some significant factors limiting the supply of valuable elements and isotopes, since they are not widely spread in nature. The traditional way of obtaining valuable elements, which is extraction of such elements from natural deposits, is no longer able to keep up with the growing demand.

Optimizing chemical production using data-driven, AI-enabled hybrid modeling

Article | March 13, 2020

Smart use of your plant’s data can take process efficiency to a higher level. Hybrid models driven by artificial intelligence deliver the best results for the least effort. And you don’t need a data science degree to enjoy them. Data is everywhere these days – and the volumes of it are growing exponentially all the time. We’re used to smart uses of it in our everyday lives. Like Amazon and Netflix using our past behavior to tempt us with new products or shows, even making them more appealing by tailoring how they look based on carefully constructed, data-driven profiles of our tastes. Much of that heavy lifting is done by artificial intelligence (AI). In chemical production, process control systems have been collecting data measurements during continuous or batch manufacturing for decades.

Transporting biological and chemical materials - what you need to know

Article | March 13, 2020

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.

COVID-19’S IMPACT ON CHEMICAL SUPPLY CHAINS

Article | March 13, 2020

The global COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in significant impact on chemical supply chains. Here we take a look at some of the chemicals that have been affected: Sanitization products such as Isopropyl Alcohol have experienced skyrocketing demand. Unfortunately, manufacturers are simultaneously dealing with problems that are preventing them from supplying at full capacity. While two US producers are experiencing production issues, another is having trouble with raw material Acetone supply. A fourth US producer is scheduled to restart production of IPA, but this material will take a few weeks to come online. Meeting this unprecedented demand is proving to be a challenge, and prices have increased sharply.

Chemical Recycling of Plastic – Waste No More?

Article | March 13, 2020

When it comes to the circular economy transition, plastics recycling is as much of a challenge as an opportunity. Today, around 25.8 million tons of plastic waste are generated in Europe every year, with less than 30 percent of it getting collected for recycling. This is a huge loss of valuable resources to the economy, and with a huge cost to the environment. Could chemical recycling be part of the ultimate solution, making the plastics value chain more circular whilst providing a profitable new industry branch.
