There wasn't much of a chemical processing industry in America nearly a century ago. What little presence we had was being threatened by the pending war in Europe cutting off raw materials. That's when Dr. Charles Roth, chief chemist for the Standard Oil Company, and IEC, producers of expositions, came together to discuss creating a forum where equipment manufacturers and chemical producers could come together to meet this challenge. The result of this meeting, and the dire need for the U.S. chemical industry to rapidly become more self sufficient, was the creation of the First National Exposition of the Chemical Industries in New York in the fall of 1915. Fast forward to 2011 ...Read More
