The planned chemical manufacturer community will use existing priority research and innovation projects

Supplier network: One of the most important assets of the region is the relationship established between and within the industry, which promotes cooperation and innovation. Building a stronger network within the chemical manufacturing industry will help increase efficiency, promote the use of best practices and new technologies, and reduce waste. The supplier network plans to adopt industrial ecology methods to study the input, output and waste of industries and their relationship with the local economy and environment. The assessment will reveal the potential synergies of various industries, such as the use of waste (crustacean shells) from the seafood industry to treat river water used by the chemical industry. The New Orleans East Ecological Park was developed to support existing and emerging industries in Southeastern Louisiana, including sustainable energy, emerging technologies and facilities to support the expansion of the Port of New Orleans and the barge container market. Research and Innovation: The LCC Alliance recognizes that by developing new research partnerships and promoting innovation, Louisiana can maintain a leading energy and chemical manufacturing industry. There are several research universities in the area, including Louisiana State University, Southern University, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, University of New Orleans, and LTCCS. These institutions have developed their research, development and training capabilities in many technical fields important to the regional chemical industry and will continue. The planned chemical manufacturer community will use existing priority research and innovation projects, adopt a multidisciplinary approach, and establish cooperative research partnerships with regional chemical manufacturers and service providers to provide innovative solutions to the actual problems of chemical manufacturing in the region. They also want to seize the huge opportunity for Louisiana to become a leader in sustainable chemical manufacturing. Southern Louisiana is world-famous for its chemical manufacturing industry and abundant natural gas and oil supplies. This "chemical corridor" stretches 200 miles from New Orleans to Baton Rouge and Lake Charles. It is home to hundreds of chemical manufacturing plants and oil refineries and is worth billions of dollars. The high international demand for petrochemical and energy-related products has created a key technology and supply chain network (KTS) for the construction, operation and service of these facilities. Advanced industries, including manufacturing, energy and services, employed 255,920 full-time workers (direct and indirect jobs) and produced 60.6 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for 27.3% of all output in the region in 2013. While demand continues to grow, the industry is undergoing a shift to more sustainable resources and practices globally. Visually The goal of the Southern Louisiana Chemical Manufacturing Community, led by Louisiana State University, is to develop a vibrant national and internationally renowned chemical manufacturing community that will increase positive social and environmental impacts, including job growth, waste reduction, and product innovation. This healthy regional chemical manufacturing industry will provide a stable supply of innovative chemical products to other regions in the United States, and provide raw materials for downstream consumer goods manufacturing in the United States and international markets. The partnership includes experts in sustainability, workforce development and small business development in order to truly establish an integrated approach. This strategy

tists pointed out the dangers of these chemical products

How to quickly obtain the approval of the Environmental Protection Agency for chemical substances harmful to human health and the environment? This week, on the "Intercept" program, investigative reporter Sharon Lerner reported how the chemical industry pressured the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to approve chemicals and pesticides that are harmful to public health. Lerner interviewed the agency’s whistleblower. These scientists stated that their research was manipulated by EPA regulators to minimize the dangers of chemicals, including extreme cases that fall into the category of "hair on fire." Lerner also discussed how the agency approved chemicals and pesticides at the company's request, without proper research on their toxicity, or worse, even if scientists pointed out the dangers of these chemical products. But this is not new; it follows the long historical trajectory of the Environmental Protection Agency, including the "revolving door" between the agency and the chemical industry. Jeremy Scahill: This is an interception. Roger Hodge: This is Roger Hodge, the associate editor of Intercept magazine. Under the leadership of the Trump administration, we have spent a lot of time reporting on how corrupt political appointees have weakened the efforts of EPA’s dedicated scientists and regulators. American Public Broadcasting Corporation: Great changes have taken place in the Trump Administration's Environmental Protection Agency. As a candidate, the president vowed to get rid of it in "almost any form"- Former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt: We are stripping heavy costs from the US economy at an unprecedented rate. While we are doing this, we are also encouraging the confidence of the American people to make them believe that we will cooperate with them, not against them.

the world continues to browse the ongoing popularity of chemical products

As the world continues to browse the ongoing popularity of chemical products, the building blocks behind millions of tons of personal care at any given time, digital communications, secure packaging or medicines - in short, chemical substances - are supported by global transportation The world's response, recovery and long-term resilience. To be fair, if the basic ingredients behind shields, mattresses or wind turbine blades are not available globally, global health, economic or social recovery will not be possible. But to achieve this, global value chains must play a role. Without the effective flow of goods and services, investment capital, and knowledge, the socio-economic system cannot be rebuilt. So, what are we doing to make sure they can do it? The World Economic Forum's Chemical and Advanced Materials Industry Action Group (IAG) cooperated with Accenture with the support of the Forum to identify opportunities to improve industry and social resilience through cooperative actions. As part of this work, we emphasize the definition of some potential trends in global value chains and their importance for building a more resilient socio-economic system. Global chemical trade is shrinking In the past 20 years, the pursuit of efficiency has defined the pattern of the chemical industry. From 1998 to 2008, under the impetus of trade agreements, uniform standards and regulatory adjustments, chemical companies located factories in areas with the lowest costs or near the largest demand centers, while making large-scale investments globally. During the same period, global chemical exports increased from 400 billion U.S. dollars to 2.1 trillion U.S. dollars, and the proportion of chemical trade in GDP has steadily increased.

This is dwarfed by the EU's largest chemical manufacturer

China's rapid development and its central role as a driving force for globalization have enabled China's economic ties with the EU to expand rapidly in the past 20 years. From 2000 to 2019, the trade volume increased by nearly 8 times, reaching 560 billion euros. China is now the EU’s second largest trading partner after the United States. At the same time, imports from China have increased tenfold, leading to cheaper consumer goods and freeing up the disposable income of European citizens. At the same time, the growing demand for European products has made China an important export destination. However, China's overall importance to the EU should not be overstated. The presence of Chinese companies in Europe and Chinese investment in Europe are still relatively small. Despite the hype, there are still very few investments related to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), such as battery manufacturer CATL's investment in a $2 billion factory in Germany, or energy technology supplier Envision to build electric vehicles in France (EV) Greenfield investments such as plans for battery factories are still rare. Therefore, China's total investment stock still accounts for about 5% of the EU's total investment. This is dwarfed by the EU's chemical manufacturer, the United States. In 2019, China accounted for an average of 2.4% of the exports of the 27 EU member states, while the EU single market and the United States accounted for 67% and 5.7%, respectively. Its economic importance varies from member to member state. China's share of exports from Western Europe and Scandinavia is even higher. These countries have also been major investment destinations for Chinese companies in the past 10 years. Within the European Union, Germany has benefited the most economically from China's rise. Since 2005, under the leadership of German Chancellor Angela Merkel (Angela Merkel), the two countries have deepened political relations while also strengthening trade and investment relations. Germany accounts for 48.5% of EU exports to China, which is 4.6 times that of France. France is the second largest exporter of EU exports to China in 2019. In the second quarter of 2020, as major markets such as the European Union and the United States continue to be affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, China has become Germany's largest export market for the first time. But these figures need to be compared with the EU's overall trade structure. In 2019, German exports to China accounted for only 7.2%. Germany’s share of exports outside the single market was 17.4%, which was much higher than the EU-27 average of 7.3%. Within the European Union, Germany's booming economic relationship with China remains an exception. Germany accounts for 31% of EU exports to the US, which is 17 percentage points lower than its share of EU exports to China, while other member states have relatively balanced exports to the US. In addition, German exports to the United States accounted for 21.6% of exports outside the EU, which is closer to the average level of 16.6% in the EU-27. Germany's status as the manufacturing center of the European Union may also cause some other member states to underrepresent investment in China because they are only indirectly linked to exports through the supply chain.

The good news is that there are many other career options for chemical engineers

Chemical engineers develop and design chemical manufacturing processes. They use major sciences such as mathematics, chemistry, biology, and physics to solve problems. These issues may include the production of chemicals, fuels, medicines, and food. Some people want to switch careers for many reasons. One reason chemical engineers change their careers is related to work-life balance. It usually requires long hours of work and may not be suitable for family life. Another reason people leave is technical reasons. Many jobs focus on technical aspects, such as planning, writing, or presentations. People who like the laboratory may want to change. When it comes to chemical engineering, layoffs often occur, which leads people to find another job to use their degree. The good news is that there are many other career options for chemical engineers. 1. Water Resources Engineer Salary range: The lowest 10% of income is $79,340.
