Traversing a Data-Powered Supply Chain

Transporting chemical products across global supply chains is complex and challenging, but data-supported technologies are helping to improve efficiency, sustainability and reliability Materials produced by the chemical process industries (CPI) are used in nearly all global product chains. According to…

New Membranes Support Sustainability Trends

Advances in membrane technologies allow processors to delve into gas- and water-separation applications more effectively and efficiently Conventional membranes have a reputation for being “finicky” and “high maintenance” because they don’t operate well under high pressures or temperatures, are subject…

SAF Production Expands for a Low-Carbon Future

To lower their climate impact, petroleum refiners are increasingly assessing greenhouse-gas-emission intensities as they consider processing lower-carbon feedstocks. One area of particular activity is sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), where demand growth is accelerating While the oil-and-gas industry has been on…
