Let The Blogging Begin

Welcome to the Chemical Reaction Blog – a place to react to what you've seen in or heard about the chemical industry. Getting the discussion started is often a difficult task, but as a journalist charged with helping to keep you informed about what's happening in the industry and within the chemical processing community – I am excited to take on the challenge. And I won't be alone. Some of the experts you've looked to for insight in Chemical Processing magazine have agreed to be a part of the discussion. Human nature makes us observers for the most part and participants once in a while. We hope that changes with the Chemical Reaction Blog. This is your chance to voice your opinion, to argue or agree with your peers. To question the who, what, when, where, why and how. To get answers or give advice. Or to simply vent about your day at the office. I look forward to engaging in conversation with you – blog on, my friends! Traci Purdum Senior Digital Editor, ChemicalProcessing.com

  • <p>Wow, this is a new blog, I'm reader #6.</p> <p>#1- I enjoyed reading the news item on the CO2 conversion to MeOH. <a href="http://www.chemicalprocessing.com/articles/2009/104.html">http://www.chemicalprocessing.com/articles/2009/104.html</a> So all we need is to develop the technology to fit on the end of a stack -&gt; global warming issue solved! It's like the opening scene in <i>Waterworld</i> when Mariner gets his drinking water!</p> <p>Of course this news section followed the more dismal editorial from Mark Rosenzweig about the lack of future ChE's. It would be good to see the companies populating their Job databases to support these new discoveries - but then where will the ChE's come from to build all this, Mark?</p> <p>#2- Perhaps the shakeup in the auto industry will break the logjam of policy that forces oil to be the main transportation fuel source. There doesn't seem to be any concern that a lack of oil will dramatically affect everything else that relies on it, when transportation usage (gasoline) has the proven alternatives already.</p> <p>#3- Oh, and I like your addition of the Comical Processing feature. Great idea. J. Loar</p>
