JAGGAER and Chemwatch to Deliver Industry-Leading Chemicals Search and Management Solution

JAGGAER and Chemwatch

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.

Danimer Scientific and Chevron Phillips Chemical Expand Collaboration to Include Application Development for Rinnovo™ Polymers

businesswire | September 21, 2023

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. About Danimer Scientific Danimer is a pioneer in creating more sustainable, more natural ways to make plastic products. For more than a decade, its renewable and sustainable biopolymers have helped create plastic products that are biodegradable and compostable and return to nature instead of polluting our lands and waters. Danimer’s technology can be found in a vast array of plastic end products that people use every day. Applications for its biopolymers include additives, aqueous coatings, fibers, filaments, films and injection-molded articles, among others. Danimer holds more than 430 granted patents and pending patent applications in more than 20 countries for a range of manufacturing processes and biopolymer formulations.
