Last month, the American Chemical Society (ACS) celebrated its 19th annual National Chemistry Week, a community-based program that aims to communicate how chemistry benefits quality of life. The initiative goes hand-in-hand with the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC’s) “essential₂” advertising campaign, launched a little more than a year ago to inform law and policy makers about...

  Once a year, a hundred or so upper-echelon managers of U.S. chemical-process companies go through a long-standing ritual: as they dress up for an annual award dinner sponsored by the American Section of the Soc. of Chemical Industry (SCI) a key feature of their attire is a mauve necktie. Mauve is far from being a conventional, let alone fashionable, color in the male wardrobe. But then, this event...

  Any time experts invest effort in recommending directions for research and development with relevance for chemical engineering, their work seems worth a close look. Thus, this Editor’s Page has welcomed chances to air such recommendations as: Technology Vision 2020: the U.S. Chemical Industry (January 2001, p. 7) and the U.S. National Academies’ Beyond the Molecular Frontier: Challenges...

In families, organizations or nations, it can happen that when leaders at the top do not lead, those supposedly led take things into their own hands. That seems like an adequate, if imprecise, summary of how the largely regional, state-level and corporate response to global warming has recently been shaping up in the U.S. The details of facing up to CO2 and other greenhouse gases are spelled out in the...

This latest rise in petroleum prices is in the news because of its impact on the consumer, particularly the automobile-driving (or SUV-driving) consumer. Geopolitical tensions triggered by some oil-producer nations have been helping to fuel that price rise, and these tensions bring more urgency to the need — so often stated! — for nations, companies and individual consumers alike to cut back...

Last August, the comments on this page saluted recent achievements of BASF Corp., Merck, Archer Daniels Midland and other winners of the U.S.’s 2005 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Program, administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (Green-chemistry feats bring in the gold, CE, August 2005, p. 7). In light of today’s high interest in, and the clear desirability of, such usage of...

Reader feedback tells us that maintaining process-plant safety is an area of perennial concern. That, doubtless, explains why Carolyn Merritt, chair and chief executive officer of the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB; Washington, D.C.), drew a large audience during her keynote address at the Chem Show in New York two months ago. For attendees of that Show who heard her, or who read...
