Transporting biological and chemical materials - what you need to know

Article | August 8, 2022

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.

Setting record straight on testing harm in chemicals

Article | July 20, 2022

The modern world is built on chemicals, be it the medicines we use, or cleaning fluids, crop protection products, or the raw materials for everything from laptops and mobile phones to clothes and furniture. Across all, we have created an entire modern society with chemicals, and, as a result, constantly stretched the size of the world population we can feed, clothe and shelter. Yet, balancing all the gains from the modern chemistry around us against any negative environmental and human impact has been a rising concern, making for ever greater focus on testing and on risk assessment.

Why chemical characterization is the best way to assess patient risk

Article | August 2, 2022

Everyone is very familiar with the phrase when buying a house: All that really matters are three things - location, location, and location. This same principle applies to extractables and leachables chemistry analysis – the three things that truly matter are identification, identification, and identification. The greatest growth in the past ten years in demonstrating the safety of medical devices and container closure systems for drugs has been using analytical chemistry to determine what chemicals can leach from the device and what the patient is exposed to during its intended use.

Carbios and Novozymes Form Long-term Alliance to Lead PET Biorecycling Worldwide

Carbios | January 17, 2023

Carbios, a leading green chemistry firm, and Novozymes, a global leader in biological solutions, have recently announced an exclusive long-term global strategic partnership. This agreement ensures the long-term production and supply of Carbios' patented PET-degrading enzymes on a commercial scale for the first biological PET-recycling plant in the world, which is scheduled to begin production in 2025 in Longlaville, France, as well as Carbios' future licensee customers. Since 2019, Carbios and Novozymes have partnered to produce enzyme-based solutions and address the sustainability challenge of plastic pollution on the environment, both in PET-recycling and PLA-biodegradation. Building on the present joint development agreement (JDA), under the new contract, the deal will see Carbios and Novozymes extend their collaborative efforts to develop, optimize, and produce enzymes that Novozymes will subsequently deliver to all licensees of Carbios' technology. In addition, the new agreement gives both parties exclusive rights in the partnership's field. The strategic partnership assists the large-scale industrial deployment of Carbios' patented PET-recycling technology, beginning with its upcoming industrial reference unit in Longlaville, France, which will be the world's first biological PET-recycling plant. While the Building and operating permits have been filed with the local authorities, and construction will commence later this year. The plant's production is scheduled to begin in 2025, with a processing capacity of 50,000 tonnes of waste per year. About Carbios Established in 2011, Carbios SA is a green chemistry firm focused on discovering and developing enzymatic bioprocesses applied to plastic and textile polymers. The company develops a new generation of entirely biodegradable plastics with a controllable lifespan, as well as a technique that allows for endless biorecycling of plastic waste (PET) and a new biological pathway for the manufacturing of competitive bio-sourced polymers. By using its unique approach of merging enzymes and polymers, it wants to address changing consumer expectations and the problems of a broad ecological shift by tackling a significant challenge of our time: plastic and textile pollution.

Permian Resources Releases Portfolio Optimization Transactions

Permian Resources | January 24, 2023

Permian Resources Corporation has announced a series of portfolio management transactions, including a bolt-on acquisition, the divestiture of non-operated production and land, and the sale of a part of its water infrastructure assets in Reeves County, Texas. Acquisition Summary Permian Resources has signed a definitive agreement to purchase 3,300 net royalty acres, 4,000 net leasehold acres, and 1,100 Boe/d (73% oil) of net production, primarily located in Lea County, New Mexico, from an unnamed third party for a total purchase price of $98 million. This purchase price reflects an acquired value of roughly $8,000 per net leasehold acre and approximately $7,000 per net royalty acre. The operating location of the assets includes primarily undeveloped land and is next to one of the company's current core blocks in Lea County. Non-Operated Divestitures Summary Permian Resources also confirmed the divestiture of producing, non-operated assets in Reeves County consisting of roughly 1,800 Boe/d (44% oil) and 3,500 net leasehold acres for $60 million to an unknown third party, showing a valuation multiple of more than 5x 2023 anticipated EBITDA. The divested acreage covers the vast bulk of the company's non-operated position in Texas and includes a negligible residual inventory. Midstream Infrastructure Transactions Summary The company signed formal agreements with an unnamed third party to sell a portion of its saltwater disposal wells and related produced water infrastructure in Reeves County for $125 million. The total consideration will be paid at closing, with $60 million subject to repayment if specific requirements tied to Permian Resources' future drilling activities in the service region are not satisfied over the next several years.
