Reinventing the plastics industry
This week’s must read
Hydrogen (produced by water electrolysis) has the potential to cost-effectively decarbonize transportation and industries. However, compared to main energy sources like oil and gas, its large-scale commercial applicability has been limited up until now.
Are we on the verge of ditching carbon-based energy and introducing green hydrogen as an alternate energy carrier?
This Week’s Must Read is an insight piece from Florian Haacke and Dr. Fabio Oldenburg, Apricum on how to produce cheaper green hydrogen to become an alternative energy carrier.
From the global pandemic to the lack of workers, the weather event crippled the U.S. Gulf Coast, and the traffic jam of ships in the Suez Canal that soon followed, the access to consumer goods, pharmaceutical supplies, and electronics have been strained. How can companies manage their supply chain risks to ensure future events will not bring them to a halt again?

The Covid-19 epidemic has hastened changes in chemical sales that were already happening.
While travel and in-person interactions are still necessary for important accounts, recurring sales and smaller accounts are increasingly done remotely and online.
With rising public concern about climate change and waste, certain end-users, environmental groups, and financial institutions are demanding greener goods and production methods from the chemical sector.
