As one of the most important and financially powerful industries, the pharmaceutical sector bears a high responsibility, not only economically but also socially. Pharmaceutical products in human and veterinary medicine enable a higher quality of life through prevention and treatment of diseases. However, the industry is subject to many changes. In the following article you can read about the high demands in the pharmaceutical industry and how the chemical industry, as a supplier of important raw materials, can help to meet them.
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is an extract of the female hemp plant that has recently become freely available in the EU. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it is not psychoactive and therefore does not have an intoxicating effect. Rather, the molecule is said to have anticonvulsant and anti-inflammatory effects. We asked ourselves, “How are these natural substances extracted?” Read more about CBD production here.
Chemical logistics has always been a sensitive area that is dependent on very different influences - and therefore susceptible to fluctuations and instability. This is particularly evident at the present time with increased delivery difficulties due to the Covid 19 pandemic. But there are also other challenges that affect the entire supply chain. Read here to find out what influencing factors in chemical logistics you should be aware of and which trends are important.
Not all solvents are the same. The pharmaceutical industry needs distinctive, high-quality products with particular purity and absolute reliability. These quality standards are crucial for the consistency of pharmaceutical formulations. Buyers and R&D managers in this industry know that application-oriented and tailor-made solvents are important factors. Learn here which properties of high-purity solvents are crucial.
Today's fuels are high-tech products with a continuous need for further development, primarily because engines are becoming better and more efficient. This applies even more to motorsports: high-quality racing fuels are of great importance, because they have to be tailor-made and precisely fit to the specific technical requirements of the different engine types. Delivering fuel must also be a perfect fit - a racing event cannot afford any delays. Read more here about the specific requirements of racing fuel deliveries.
A steadily growing population and an increasing demand for energy makes it necessary to use agrochemicals in agriculture to increase crop yields and optimise the use of agricultural land. The issue of sustainability, with the concept of minimising negative impacts on people and the environment, is playing a more and more important role. Agrochemical companies see themselves obliged to take sustainability aspects into account and to align their entire value chain accordingly - especially with their suppliers. Read this article to find out what role the EcoVadis rating plays in your company's sustainable procurement decisions.
In the engine industry, market requirements are changing rapidly: one key driver is performance optimisation, which is particularly noticeable in the fuel additive industry. After all, fuel additives play a major role in ensuring that modern engines can develop their full potential. In the production of a high-quality additive formulation, solvents play an essential role. They are used as a carrier fluid and thus also contribute to improved environmental compatibility of engines. Read here which solvent properties are decisive and what else you should expect from your solvent supplier.
The demand for custom processing is constantly increasing in the chemical industry. The reasons for this are growing customer requirements and a highly complex international market with constantly changing regulations. However, challenges such as a shortage of skilled workers, savings or digitalisation requirements also promote the acceptance of contract processing. Chemical and oil companies with innovative strength and a future-oriented approach are focusing their resources on core areas and outsourcing certain services - for some time now also increasingly the production of new developments. The advantages of this and what makes qualified custom processing companies strategic partners are explained in this article.
Fuel additives are an integral part of gasoline and diesel formulations as they are responsible for optimising fuel properties and improving engine performance. To achieve this, a balanced additive formulation and high-quality aromatic solvents are needed as carrier fluids. Close cooperation between you and the solvent manufacturer is crucial for the development of safe and high quality products. In this article we have summarised what you should pay attention to when choosing your partner.
It is impossible to imagine our lives without adhesives. Due to the latest developments in this field, many things are no longer screwed or plugged in, but permanently bonded. This saves time, material and enables previously unknown applications and designs. In order to offer the market individual adhesives, the solvents required for the adhesives must also have special properties. Here you can get an overview of paraffinic solvents for your special adhesives.
