JAGGAER, the global leader in Autonomous Commerce, is collaborating with Chemwatch, the international leader in enhanced chemicals management, to enable researchers to comply with safety standards across the full lifecycle for chemical reagents while saving on time and cost. The integration gives users of JAGGAER Research Material Management (RMM), the industry-leading solution for acquiring and managing commercial reagents and lab supplies, access to more than 140 million Chemwatch Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
The integration will be available to mutual customers in Q3 2023. It will enable them to view Safety Data Sheets and use the associated indexed data in real time. “Extending our solutions through partnerships like this is at the heart of our Autonomous Commerce strategy to make customers stronger, faster and more agile while reducing costs and risks,” said JAGGAER Chief Product Officer, Dawn Andre.
Regulations require organizations to maintain a supplier-specific SDS for each chemical in their inventory. While that’s already a significant task for a manufacturing or MRO operation, for even moderately large research labs that often have inventories of more than 50,000 products – and constantly expanding – the challenge becomes truly daunting. Service organizations have been the traditional answer, but with annual charges per document, cost can be a serious barrier.
“The new JAGGAER RMM-Chemwatch integration is highly automated, minimizing manual review and attention, so you get the benefits of the full-service approach at a lower, predictable annual cost,” said Tom Russell, General Manager, RMM Solutions.
“We’ve been aware of Chemwatch for some time now and have watched their evolution to provide the largest and most comprehensive, rigorously maintained collection of supplier-specific content for materials used in research labs. Coupling JAGGAER’s approach to acquisition and material inventory with their data and flexible API offers the opportunity to bring a uniquely new and valuable capability to the market,” Russell added.
“JAGGAER RMM gives researchers a first-class integrated buying experience. Combined with Chemwatch data and our API, researchers can now automate the identification of vendor-specific documents in the full Chemwatch collection, directly from the purchase process. This will inform the full lifecycle for chemical reagents and lab supplies from acquisition through waste, enabling consistent and informed access and reporting, and reducing risk, while saving time and cost,” said Dr. Bernie Bialkower, Principal, Chemwatch.
“The Chemwatch API already offers real-time access to data that RMM customers previously obtained from third-party suppliers. With this in place, we are exploring other ways in which Chemwatch can provide further information and add more value,” Russell concluded.
Chemwatch is a world leader in the chemicals management space. With over 30 years’ experience, they specialize in chemical safety across a range of sectors, including education, healthcare, mining, governments and manufacturing. An international company headquartered in Australia, Chemwatch has offices throughout the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions. Chemwatch offers their clients access to over 140 million SDS and support in over 90 countries, with access to 50 languages. They also provide a range of other services, including

Technip Energies and LanzaTech Global, Inc. signed a Joint Collaboration Agreement to create a new pathway to sustainable ethylene utilizing their combined technologies. Together LanzaTech’s carbon capture and utilization technology with Technip Energies’ Hummingbird® technology transform waste carbon into ethylene, the most common building block in petrochemicals.
Ethylene is a building block for thousands of chemicals and materials, including plastics, detergents, and coatings that keep hospitals sterile, people safe, and food fresh. Its traditional production process is also one of the largest sources of carbon dioxide emissions in the chemical industry and remains one of its most challenging processes to decarbonize. This new joint process uses carbon emissions as the starting point rather than virgin fossil carbon. First, up to 95% of the CO2 in the flue gas is captured from the furnaces of an ethylene cracker and mixed with hydrogen. Next LanzaTech’s biorecycling technology transforms the captured waste carbon into ethanol. Finally, Technip Energies’ Hummingbird® technology dehydrates the ethanol to ethylene.
Technip Energies and LanzaTech have collaborated on other sustainable solutions since 2020, including a partnership with Borealis and On, the Swiss running shoe company, to make EVA foam for the sole of running shoes. Technip Energies also partners with LanzaJet, an independent company formed and spun off by LanzaTech, which includes the Hummingbird® technology in the LanzaJet™ Alcohol-to-Jet process which makes sustainable aviation fuel from ethanol.
Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, stated: “We are very pleased to work with LanzaTech on another sustainable solution, this time to decarbonize ethylene. This breakthrough technology will not only capture carbon but will use it to make a valuable end product.”
Dr. Jennifer Holmgren, CEO of LanzaTech, said: “By combining and integrating our process with that of Technip Energies, we have the potential to retrofit onto ethylene crackers around the world, supporting decarbonization of a sector that has limited choices today. The sustainable production of one of the most used commodity chemicals will have an impact on the lives of billions of people daily. Through partnerships such as this one with Technip Energies, we are creating meaningful pathways to break free from virgin fossil inputs for the things we use in our daily lives.”
About Technip Energies
Technip Energies is a leading Engineering & Technology company for the energy transition, with leadership positions in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), hydrogen and ethylene as well as growing market positions in blue and green hydrogen, sustainable chemistry and CO2 management. The company benefits from its robust project delivery model supported by extensive technology, products and services offering.
Headquartered in Skokie, IL, LanzaTech Global, Inc. captures waste carbon and transforms it into materials such as sustainable fuels, fabrics, packaging, and other products. Using a variety of waste feedstocks, LanzaTech’s technology platform highlights a future where consumers are not dependent on virgin fossil feedstocks for everything in their daily lives. LanzaTech’s goal is to challenge and change the way the world uses carbon, enabling a new circular carbon economy where carbon is reused rather than wasted, skies and oceans are kept clean, and pollution becomes a thing of the past.

Danimer Scientific, Inc. a leading next-generation bioplastics company focused on the development and production of biodegradable materials, today announced it is expanding its collaboration with Chevron Phillips Chemical (“CPChem”) to explore development and commercialization of cast extrusion films, blown extrusion films, injection molded parts and rotational molded parts using Rinnovo™ polymers produced in a loop slurry reactor process.
Rinnovo™ is a type of polyhydroxyalkanoate (“PHA”) synthesized from lactones produced using Danimer’s proprietary Novo22™ catalyst technology, which can be used in the production of biodegradable alternatives to traditional plastics. The collaboration expands on Danimer and CPChem’s previously announced agreement, in which Danimer is evaluating the use of CPChem’s loop slurry reactor design to develop a continuous reactor system in the manufacturing process for Rinnovo™.
Stephen E. Croskrey, chief executive officer of Danimer, said, “Our business relationship with CPChem continues to yield results, and we’re excited for the further opportunities that lie ahead. CPChem’s Research and Technology lab in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, is a premier facility staffed with world-class talent that we believe will accelerate the path toward adoption of Rinnovo™ materials in high-volume applications that will assist in lowering the cost to serve key markets.”
Opened in 1950 by Phillips 66, CPChem’s Bartlesville facility contains first-class research equipment allowing for rapid testing of products across various processing conditions. Additionally, the facility’s testing and analytical capabilities provide a more rapid feedback loop, accelerating the development and optimization of resin formulations.
“We continue to be excited about the potential of our MarTECH® process technology and related collaborations to advance Danimer’s Rinnovo™, another CPChem initiative that can help accelerate change for a more sustainable future,” said Venki Chandrashekar, CPChem vice president of research and technology.
