Chemical Week and SRI Consulting Team Up to Go Green

Written by Businesswire India | New York, March 28: | Updated: Mar 28 2008, 18:02pm hrs
In a ground-breaking initiative, Chemical Week and lead sponsor SRI Consulting unveiled www.chemsustainability.com, a new web presence providing authoritative information on sustainability and greenhouse gas issues for the chemical industry.

It is the first purpose-built resource for chemical industry leaders informing them of the latest data, trends, market information, innovations, and business news relating to chemicals and the environment.

This new site combines news analysis expertise from Chemical Week, with the market and engineering perspectives of SRI Consulting, to provide a repository for hard-to-find data and commentary on environmental issues.

Alex Scott, Executive Editor/Web and Environment at Chemical Week says, "Awareness of environmental sustainability, now more than ever, is a key element to the success of any chemical business. Political and public pressure for greener products and production places the chemical industry at the heart of the sustainability debate. www.chemsustainability.com enables industry executives to keep abreast of the rapid changes associated with the present issues by providing clear news, market information, and best practice models when it comes to chemicals and the environment." Mr. Scott continued, "It is Chemical Week's responsibility as the most influential chemical media resource to provide concise coverage on sustainability to our worldwide audience of chemical executives."

The launch of the www.chemsustainability.com micro-site features news and information, Q&A with Dr. Geoff Leaver from environmental advisory body Envirowise, daily listing of carbon prices, and white papers and abstracts on biofuels & bio-materials, climate change, emissions trading, clean energy technologies, water and energy efficiency. www.chemsustainability.com also features a series of articles on new innovations in green chemistry, adding new dimension to the existing www.chemweek.com site, which offers 24/7 news analysis for chemical industry executives.

Commenting on SRIC's sponsorship of the micro-site, Russell Heinen, Vice President at SRIC said, "The Process Economics Program (PEP) at SRI Consulting has been publishing reports on sustainability in the chemical and energy industries for over 10 years. During that time, we have developed unique perspectives on the fundamental issues involved in sustainability, and an unparalleled database on greenhouse gas emissions from chemical plants." Mr. Heinen continued, "Our PEP reports, now joined by our Safe & Sustainable Chemical Series reports and Greenhouse Gases Initiative hit the environmental issues head on, providing analysis of the underlying trends and helping businesses stay competitive for the long term in this period of changing information needs."
