COOL INFOGRAPHIC COMPARES THE CHEMISTRY OF PLANETARY ATMOSPHERES

| December 23, 2015

Here on Earth we enjoy the nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere we’ve all come to know and love with each of the approximately 24,000 breaths we take each day (not to mention the surprisingly comfortable 14.7 pounds per square inch of pressure it exerts on our bodies every moment.) But every breath we take would be impossible (or at least quickly prove to be deadly) on any of the other planets in our Solar System due to their specific compositions. The infographic above, created by UK chemistry teacher Andy Brunning for his blog Compound Interest, breaks down — graphically, that is; not chemically — the makeup of atmospheres for each of the planets. Very cool!

What's the Most Toxic Chemical?

Article | February 24, 2020

People say America doesn’t make things anymore. But what about toxic chemicals? We make so many of those, we throw half of them in rivers, for free. The problem is, it can be hard to get a handle on which of those chemicals are extremely toxic and which of them are merely somewhat toxic. If one or another shows up in a scan of your stomach, should you freak out or just be grateful it wasn’t something worse? For this week’s Giz Asks, we reached out to a number of experts to find out what the most toxic chemical is.

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

Article | February 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?

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

Article | February 24, 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.

NON-CHEMICAL WEED CONTROL WITH FOAMSTREAM

Article | February 24, 2020

Unwanted weeds and vegetation don’t have to be controlled with harmful and dangerous chemicals. There are plenty of non-chemical and organic methods of weed control that are reliable and safe to use, such as Foamstream. Non-chemical weed control is the process of killing weeds without harmful toxins. This is sometimes referred to as cultural or organic weed control, with methods ranging from hoeing and hand-pulling, to hot water and of course, Foamstream.
