The mercury cell process is a formerly widely-used production technique for the production of chlorine and caustic soda. The liquid metal, mercury, acts as cathode (negative pole) in this process. In the past, the loss of mercury during the process (to air, soil and water) led to serious health and environmental problems. Therefore, most European chlorine producers have decided to phase out the mercury cell process by 2020. Nevertheless, even today, almost 6000 tons of mercury is used per year for chlorine...
Chemical and Pharmaceutical Customized Environmental Solutions. Applying the right emission control equipment for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry requires a thorough knowledge and understanding of the process and system requirements, combined with the ability to provide custom solutions. Dürr MEGTEC offers a wide range of environmental solutions that include solvent recovery and distillation systems, thermal oxidizers, scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, and fabric filters.
Since its foundation more than 25 years ago, HITEMA has developed a high level of experience in chemical and pharmaceutical processes that require thermal controls that can include a simple cooling or heating and, sometimes, precise cycles of temperature and timing, also granting a very high control precision for the necessary temperatures, high level of unit reliability, high efficiency; Upon request, the units can be supplied with stainless steel hydraulic covers and circuits.
Resource consumption in the chemical industry is enormous. Although the industry has already succeeded in significantly reducing its energy demands, it remains challenged by high energy costs, high water consumption and increasingly stringent regulations. Energy efficiency, increased production and plant availability are therefore important factors contributing to a competitive advantage. We would be glad to support you. Kurita offers a broad spectrum of resource-saving solutions as well as solutions for improving...
Kurita Water Solutions provides oil refineries and petrochemical plants with all the chemical additives used directly in the process, to fight the problems caused by the composition of the crude oil and the intermediate products. In oil refineries and petrochemical plants the goal is to improve efficiency and to optimise the production capacity.

Antibodies, protein-based therapeutics, and other recombinant proteins are final products in biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry. Determination of their purity, stability, and hetero geneity is of utmost importance since post-translational modifications as well as degradation processes can change drastically the biological activity of these proteins.
Gas chromatographs and hydrocarbon analyzers can be key in adding value to the ethanol production process and protecting the environment from Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)emissions created during the process.
For manufacturers of chemicals – which can be broadly defined as anything from specialty chemicals to lubricants, plastics and food contact to cosmetics and more - changing market dynamics dictate the need for flexibility in meeting customers` complex requirements for high performance sustainable products and improving supply chain performance. Delivering quality products in record time is critical, as are optimizing business processes across your enterprise and global supply chain.
Titanium dioxide is the most important white pigment used in the polymer industry. It is widely used, because it efficiently scatters visible light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness, and opacity when incorporated into a plastic product.
