The variety of chemicals produced or used each year in manufacturing and treatment processes across the globe is staggering. The recipes for these chemical properties stretch from simple environmentally-friendly compounds to highly toxic formulations requiring amassively diverse portfolio of products to address the complex range of needs.
Chemical manufacturers face enormous environmental, safety and cost issues, including:
- Production leaks that can have severe health consequences to plant workers and damage the surrounding environment
- Chemicals that are expensive to produce and high risk of lost revenue if there is inconsistent quality or contamination during production
- Equipment costs for demanding chemical process applications can be extremely expensive and can have limited performance life
- Production time that is critical to maintain and requires the use of quality equipment that is easy to repair and has dependable service available
