More potentially hazardous chemicals are lurking in plastics than has been assumed
ETH Zurich researchers examined chemicals in plastics worldwide. They found an unexpectedly high number of substances of potential concern intentionally used in everyday plastic products. A lack of transparency limits management of these chemicals. Plastic is practical, cheap and incredibly ...
Many cosmetics sold in the United States and Canada likely contain high levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a potentially toxic class of chemicals linked to a number of serious health conditions, according to new research from the University of Notre Dame. Scientists tested more ...
Researchers have found a cheap way to switch bacteria into chemical production mode
High-value chemicals used in biofuels and pharmaceuticals can be made from bacteria by switching their chemistry to produce novel products. Researchers from the University of Warwick have found a way to drastically cut the cost of turning on these switches.We use chemicals for almost everything, ...
Specialty chemicals company LANXESS completed the sale of its organic leather chemicals business to TFL Ledertechnik GmbH on June 1, 2021. TFL is a global supplier of leather chemicals and a portfolio company of US investment firm Black Diamond Capital Management, L.L.C. All relevant antitrust ...
The effects of environmental chemicals at the molecular level
The chemical bisphenol F (found in plastics) can induce changes in a gene that is vital for neurological development. This discovery was made by researchers at the universities of Uppsala and Karlstad, Sweden. The mechanism could explain why exposure to this chemical during the fetal stage may be ...
LanzaTech and BASF achieve first milestone in utilizing industrial off-gases for chemical production
Transforming the carbon contained in industrial off-gases into valuable chemicals is the aim of a partnership between LanzaTech and BASF. Now the partners have achieved a key first success: With the help of special bacteria, they have been able to produce n-octanol at laboratory scale from carbon ...
The discovery of a novel enzyme that releases a valuable chemical from agricultural waste could provide an important breakthrough in the upscaling of renewable fuels and chemicals, a new study shows. Researchers - led by the University of York - have discovered an enzyme in a fungus which can act ...
A new chemical process provides biodegradable chemicals
Scientists at the Institute for Cooperative Upcycling of Plastics (iCOUP), an Energy Frontier Research Center led by Ames Laboratory, have discovered a chemical process that provides biodegradable, valuable chemicals, which are used as surfactants and detergents in a range of applications, from ...
A New and Improved Zeolite Could Mean Greater Yield and Longer Lifecycles for Petrochemical Catalysts
Aromatics are major building blocks of polymers, or plastics, that turn up as everything from PET bottles for water to breathable, wrinkle-resistant polyester clothing. These petrochemicals comprise a specialized, value-added sector of the energy industry. The process for refining crude oil into ...
