A Newly Revised Guide Helps U.S. Businesses Meet the Challenges of Exporting

11/19/09 - First published in the early 1990s, a completely updated edition of the Export Programs Guide has just been issued. This detailed guide gives exporters a wealth of information on more than 100 federal programs that offer counseling and assistance to current exporters and businesses looking to expand overseas.

REACH Presentation & FAQs – July 30, 2008

04/15/08 - REACH Presentation & FAQs – July 30, 2008 - Presentation covers implementation issues faced with the REACH regulation in its beginning stage. Answers to frequently asked questions, at the time, are also provided at the end.

CFATS, Chemical Plant Security, and Greener Process Technologies

04/12/07 - This presentation provides an overview of the plant security issue from the perspective of the chemical manufacturing industry, and describe current efforts within the industry, government, and the NGO community to minimize the threat of terrorist attack by addressing chemical and process risk. The Chemcial Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) regulations are discussed in some detail. New trends in process technology which can minimize these risks (e.g., process intensification, microscale chemical processing, and green chemistry) are also be discussed in the context of how the plant security and pollution prevention drivers can be leveraged to spur adoption of these technologies. Originally presented at the Toxics Use Reduction Institute's 2007 Continuing Ed course, in Sturbridge, MA in April 2007.

Pollution Prevention and Chemical Plant Security

05/01/06 - This presentation will present an overview of the plant security issue from the perspective of the chemical manufacturing industry, and describe current efforts within the industry, government, and the NGO community to minimize the threat of terrorist attack by addressing chemical and process risk. New trends in process technology which can minimize these risks (e.g., process intensification, microscale chemical processing, and green chemistry) will also be discussed in the context of how the plant security and pollution prevention drivers can be leveraged to spur adoption of these technologies. Originally presented at the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable meeting in Louisville, KY in April 2003.

Nuts and Bolts of Chemical Process Pollution Prevention

09/27/04 - This presentation provides practical strategies for preventing waste and reducing energy consumption in chemical manufacturing facilities. The examples are drawn from more than 400 case studies contained in the ChemAlliance Virtual Plant Tour, an online database of pollution prevention and environmental best management practices. The course is intended for environmental staff, process engineers, and plant managers working in chemical manufacturing facilities. We emphasize an engineering approach to P2 opportunity identification, which builds upon an understanding of common process "root causes" for waste and emissions, and provides practical, commercially proven techniques for how to eliminate these root causes in both new and existing facilities. Developed in partnership with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, and originally presented at Michigan DEQ facilities in September 2004.

Introduction to the Chemical Industry for Technical Assistance Providers

04/19/04 - This training package was originally developed by ChemAlliance in conjunction with the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association (SOCMA) and the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD). It was originally presented at the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable meeting in Baltimore, MD in April 2004.
