EcoARMOUR Helps Protect Against Bioaccumulation

Bioaccumulation of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) is a serious threat to humans and animals. A major source of bioaccumulative chemicals in the environment is the paper and cardboard that ends up in landfills and recycling plants. Coatings and additives used in cardboard and paper products remain in the environment and spread after these products are discarded, eventually accumulating in the

The Pilot Plant: The Key to Success in Product Development

Since the beginning of large-scale chemical manufacturing, chemical engineers have struggled with the problems that arise when scaling up chemical processes. Cost increases, loss of control within the process, as well as transfer and extraction issues can make a bench-scale chemical process difficult to implement in the production plant. Fortunately, trials at an effective pilot facility can help resolve these

A More Efficient and Clean Fuel with Texalene

The modern world has relied on fuel to power its machines for years, and over time, developed new processes to make more efficient use of our resources. Historically, additives were used to achieve that efficiency and make fuel cleaner. However, many additives include ash, which is known to be detrimental to the environment and machines alike. The demand for ash-less
