Chemical & Petrochemical

The chemical and petrochemical industries are among the most important sectors of global trade, exerting significant influence on countless other manufacturing sectors and our daily lives in general. Generating a global turnover of nearly $800 million, the chemical and petrochemical industries produce chemicals and plastics that are crucial for a wide range of products and processes. The chemical industries are reliant on availability, reliability, product quality and yield, and face increasing scrutiny over their energy consumption, material use and waste. The industry operates in an increasingly challenging global landscape, whereby everything from the fluctuating price of crude oil to a growing backlash against plastics threaten the status quo.

Chemical and petrochemical plants and engineers operate in some of the most hostile and aggressive environments possible, which also makes these industries some of the most heavily-regulated.
