MAKING INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS GREEN

October 22, 2019

The researchers checked out twenty large-volume chemicals made of fossil-fuel-based hydrocarbons, together with paraxylene, toluene, propylene, and alkane. They then checked out how those industrial chemicals may be fashioned while not the direct use of fossil fuels. Generally, this needs some combination of capturing CO2 and using renewable electricity to reform that CO2 to an artificial hydrocarbon. The researchers divided potential ways of captured-carbon chemical creation into "technology readiness levels”. High-TRL ways will be enforced within the near future however typically have less of an effect on carbon emissions, whereas low-TRL ways need a lot of investment and study before they'll be deployed, however they create chemical creation nearly climate-neutral.

EtchantsUK supply quality solutions for the Testing, Inspection and Treatment of materials; specifically in the field of metallography. Part of the WoB group, we decided to move a large group of products into an eShop to better serve our customers and to allow WoB to do what it does best; manufacture and distribute products in bulk. EtchantsUK was conceived in the summer of 2017, realized in the winter of 2017 and is now being promoted for the first time in the spring 2018. Currently our product portfolio consists of 30+ named products suitable for metallography but may be suitable for the inspection and treatment of other materials.

Transporting biological and chemical materials - what you need to know

Article | February 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.

Setting record straight on testing harm in chemicals

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 | February 11, 2020

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.

How Chemical Companies Benefit from the Experience Economy

Article | February 10, 2020

To feel or experience from a business engagement started with customer experience mainly in the consumer products business. Today it has extended to even knowledge industries like the chemical industry where experiencing or feeling can be leveraged to include all stake holders from customers primarily to employees to supply chain people & suppliers and all else. With digital technologies this has become easier than before. The benefits from promoting the ‘feel’ or ‘experience’ emotion could be multifarious for the chemical industry as described in this article.
