Earth Day 2022

Earth Day 2022 in the Chemical Industry: Green Initiatives & More

This year marks the 52nd occurrence of the global event known as Earth Day. April 22nd is a day that unites people and companies regardless of their backgrounds to raise awareness and fight climate change and other environmental issues. From pledging to follow greener practices, or supporting environmental changes in their local community, observation of Earth Day becomes a year-round event rather than just an annual event for many.  

The chemical industry is filled with companies that are striving to achieve more sustainable practices in their daily operations. However, this worldwide industry hasn’t always had positive impacts on the environment. This Earth Day, let’s take a look at the importance of sustainability and Earth Day in the chemical industry, how various sectors of the chemical industry are implementing greener practices, and how you can celebrate Earth Day at home and at work. 

But first, let’s take a closer look at Earth Day itself. 

History of Earth Day  

Earth Day Then  

  • Before Earth Day became a globally recognized day, it started as an idea. In 1969, Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin wanted to raise awareness of the negative environmental consequences that were occurring from inefficient cars, industrial pollution, and other non-eco-friendly human practices.  
  • Inspired by the student anti-war movements happening across the United States at the time, Senator Nelson wanted to educate the general public about air and water pollution by holding teach-in events on college campuses to educate students. He announced the teach-ins would take place on April 22nd—a date that fell between Spring Break and final exam periods for many classes. The idea was that students were more likely to attend during this time.  
  • With help from other government leaders and a young activist named Denis Hayes, the first Earth Day was successfully organized on April 22nd, 1970. Hayes put together a team of over 85 individuals in an attempt to expand Senator Nelson’s vision by reaching not only students but all Americans. The first Earth Day was a huge success, with over 10 percent of everyone in the United States showing up in the streets, parks, and other public places to demonstrate against the harmful impacts of over 150 years of industrial development on the environment. Here are some of the issues that protesters were raising awareness for:
    • Oil spills 
    • Use of pesticides 
    • Extinction of wildlife 
    • Deforestation 
    • Toxic dumping of waste

The first Earth Day in 1970 united the rich and the poor, the urban dwellers and the rural dwellers, and all political parties. This unification also led to changes led to the creation of several laws and organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that were put in place to protect the environment. 

Earth Day Now 

  • The alignment of all groups regardless of demographics or background through Earth Day has managed to transcend the years and become an event that only continues to garner more support. In 1990, Earth Day has become a global event recognized by millions of people and hundreds of countries. And now, Earth Day 2022 is recognized as the largest secular observance in all of the world with over a billion people observing the day.  

Thanks to the digital area that supplies us with access to endless information through the internet, social media, and other digital sources, it’s never been easier to spread awareness for the environment. Issues such as climate change are now shared seamlessly with anyone who has access to the internet and has forever changed how we can take action to help the environment. 

Importance of Earth Day 2022 in the Chemical Industry 

When people think of the word “chemicals,” they often think of raw chemicals such as fossil fuels and natural gases but don’t realize that chemicals exist all around us even if they aren’t in their raw form. Nearly every industry outside of the chemical industry relies on the products and services provided by the chemical industry whether it’s cleaning solutions, pest control sprays, or water treatment, chemicals are essential for a company’s daily business operations. 

Within the chemical industry, there are several people hard at work making sure that companies in other industries receive the chemical-based products they need. On a broad scale, there are three main sectors within the chemical industry on the supply chain: engineering, manufacturing, and supplying. While each of these sectors has different responsibilities, they all have opportunities to implement sustainable changes.  

Earth Day in the Chemical Industry: Chemical Engineering 

Chemical engineers are responsible for helping to develop chemical-based products with the help of their extensive knowledge in chemistry, biology, physics, and other scientific fields.  

  • Chemical Engineers & Green Initiatives
    • Unlike manufacturers and distributors, chemical engineers work in lab settings to create chemical products and formulas. However, there is still plenty of opportunities for chemists to follow more sustainable practices inside and outside of the lab.  
    • Here are a few ways chemical engineers across the globe are striving to make the chemical industry greener: 
      • Chemists are choosing to use lab equipment that is more sustainable 
      • Safely disposing of chemical products 
      • Creating chemical solutions that contain little to no harsh and toxic chemicals 
      • Researching greener water-based alternatives to everyday solutions 
      • Creating biodegradable products from raw materials 
      • Following all environmental policies and regulations

Since 2003, the American Chemical Society (ACS) has joined in on the Earth Day celebrations and has deemed the week of April 22nd, Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW). This annual ACS event has a unique theme each year in which the organization strives to educate the public on the impact of chemicals on the environment. In 2021, the theme focused on “Reducing and Reusing” to reduce our footprint through chemistry, and the theme for Earth Day 2022 is insect chemistry, which will explore all the ways insects can help not only the chemical industry but medical and other industries. 

Earth Day in the Chemical Industry: Chemical Manufacturing 

Chemical manufacturers produce chemical-based products by using specific formulas that they receive from chemical engineers/chemists. The chemical manufacturers obtain raw chemicals from vendors and use industrial machinery to mix, blend, and create chemical products. 

  • Chemical Manufacturers & Green Initiatives 
    • Specialty and fine chemical manufacturers often require industrial machinery and factories to create chemical products. Manufacturers follow specific formulas given to them by chemists in order to create consistent products that can be supplied to consumers.  
    • Oftentimes, chemical manufacturers work with a wide variety of chemicals ranging from toxic to non-toxic. Due to their hands-on interaction with chemicals, there are several opportunities for manufacturers to observe safer and more environmentally friendly practices: 
      • Sourcing raw materials from vendors who observe eco-friendly practices 
      • Observing safety precautions during the manufacturing process 
      • Safely disposing of all chemical wastes in proper facilities 
      • Ensuring employee safety by providing employees with the proper safety gear and updated manufacturing facilities 
      • Transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy 
      • Investing in eco-friendly machinery that eliminates harmful fossil fuels and requires greener energy to operate 
      • Minimizing pollution, emissions, and hazardous leaks

Earth Day in the Chemical Industry: Chemical Suppliers / Distributors  

Once a chemical-based product is manufactured, chemical suppliers offer the product to companies who need it. They work with the company to determine the best product for them, the best sizing option and come up with a distribution plan to deliver the chemical product. 

  • Chemical Suppliers & Green Initiatives 
    • Sustainability should occur in every part of the supply chain, and chemical suppliers and distributors are no exception. This group in the chemical industry directly provides companies with the chemical products they need to keep their businesses running smoothly. Chemical suppliers package, transport, and deal with other logistics that help put products on shelves or in the proper warehouses. 
  • Here are some of the changes that chemical suppliers are making to their daily operations to help protect the environment: 
    • Offering bulk sizing options for less packaging and trips 
    • Complying with all EPA and government regulations of chemicals 
    • Properly transporting all chemical products by taking the proper safety precautions (i.e., packaging, storage, etc.)  
    • Opting to supply only eco-friendly formulated chemical products 
    • Sharing annual sustainability reports with the  UN Global Impact and other organizations

In observance of Earth Day 2022 in the chemical industry, many chemical suppliers like Ecolink strive to educate the community on the importance of eco-friendly chemical usage through blog posts and other community outreach programs and resources. 

How to Celebrate Earth Day 2022 

There are several easy ways that you can celebrate Earth Day at home or at work. Keep in mind that large impacts start with small changes. Here are a few that you can make in your personal and professional life: 

Green Ideas to Celebrate Earth Day at Home

  • Clean Greener

    • If you’ve never stopped to think about what kind of chemicals are in your cleaning solution, then it’s time you did. Many multi-surface and home cleaning solutions contain harsh and toxic chemicals that cause harm to not only the environment but to you and your loved ones. 
    • This Earth Day, consider switching to greener and cleaner solutions that consist of fewer harsh chemicals and are clean just as well. 
  • The 3 Rs

    • We’ve all heard the saying—Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle—and with good reason. One of the best ways to observe Earth Day is by recycling, reusing resources rather than throwing them away and reducing the amount of single-use resources you use.  
    • Make sure to toss that plastic water in the recycling bin, or better yet—reduce your plastic waste by switching to a reusable water bottle. Small changes like these have larger impacts on the environment over time.  
  • Donate

    • If you’re able, then donate to organizations that are helping raise environmental awareness and strive for change. If you don’t have the means to donate, then try donating your time! This Earth Day, reach out to any local non-profit organizations in your community to see how you can make a difference locally. Volunteer an hour or the whole day—anything helps! Or try something even simpler by taking time to walk around your community and picking up any trash or other items that don’t belong. 
  • Save Water

    • If you’re known for long showers or leaving the faucet running when you’re not using it, then try to be more mindful of your water usage. One of the easiest ways to decrease wasted water is by simply taking quicker showers and turning off the sink when you’re not using it.  
  • Educate Yourself

    • Reading this blog post is a step in the right direction. Is there an environmental topic you’d like to learn more about? Watch a documentary or read a quick article about the topic. Even if you already feel you know enough about the topic, it’s impossible to know everything!  

In the spirit of Earth Day, make sure to share what you learn with friends and family to spread the word and raise environmental awareness. 

Green Ideas to Celebrate Earth Day at Work 

Whether you’re a business owner or work for one, there are several changes you can implement in your day-to-day work life.   

  • Reduce Product Packaging

    • Individually packaged items all have one thing in common: they create a lot of unnecessary waste. Reducing product packaging can be as simple as buying items in bulk. If you’re in the purchasing department of your company, then opt for bulk sizing options that come with less packaging and more product. 
    • If you’re not in purchasing, then there are other measures you can take to minimize your product packaging at work by starting with something as simple as your lunch. Instead of buying individually wrapped items such as snack size chips and grab-and-go meals, try to be mindful of the amount of plastic you’re using on a daily basis, and opt for meal options with less wrapping that’ll lead to less waste.  
  • Go Digital

    • While printing paper copies of reports and other documents can be helpful, the more sustainable option may be to switch to digital documents. Next time you consider printing something that you know you’ll either lose in a day or throw away soon, opt for a digital version that will not only last longer but decrease paper waste.  
  • Recycle

    • Recycling is one of the easiest ways to observe Earth Day at work. Have a plastic wrapper? Recycle it. Are there empty cardboard boxes laying around? Recycle them. By recycling, you help prevent items from ending up in landfills and instead in facilities where they can be remade and used again. 
  • Vehicles

    • Whether you’re a truck driver or just drive your car to work, there are a few ways you can make your daily commute more sustainable: 
      1. Don’t leave your vehicle running while you’re parked. 
      2. If you’re a commuter, ask to carpool with a coworker who lives near you.  
      3. If you’re in the truck driving business, try to carry full loads for a more sustainable shipping approach.

Following any one of these practices will help reduce harmful emissions into the air and help save you money on gas. 

  • Choose Environmentally-Conscious Suppliers 

    • Each industry has its own supply chain filled with unique vendors and other aspects that keep daily operations moving smoothly. If you’re a leader or business owner, take time this Earth Day to get to know your suppliers. What are they actively doing to protect the environment? Do they have any green certifications? What are their sustainability goals? 

Getting to know your suppliers and their commitment to eco-friendly practices is one way to help your company reach it’s sustainability goals and encourage other companies to do the same. 

Celebrate Earth Day 2022 by trying out any one of these green ideas, and who knows—you might just develop a new eco-friendly habit.

Women in Chemical Engineering and Manufacturing

Women in Chemical Engineering & Manufacturing

In celebration of Women’s History Month, EcoLink is making a conscious effort to highlight and bring to light all the most up-to-date and relevant information regarding Women in Chemistry and STEM. Understanding women’s added benefit to chemical engineering careers and manufacturing businesses brings to light the contributions of Women in Chemistry. Starting off with women in chemical engineering, how do they contribute? 

Benefits of Hiring Women Chemical Engineers 

Diversifying your company has a plethora of advantages. With the rise in awareness for gender-inclusive workspaces, women have more opportunities than ever to pursue careers in various fields—including the world of STEM. The chemical industry is one of the areas of STEM that is slowly but surely adding more female employees and leaders to its ranks—and profiting from it. Women in STEM are the future, and in this blog post, we’ll explain the benefits of hiring female chemical engineers. 

Skills Needed to Become a Chemical Engineer 

Engineering degrees tend to take a minimum of four years to complete and are a necessity for anyone wanting to pursue a career in chemical engineering. During this time, future engineers study an array of scientific areas including, but not limited to: 

  • Arithmetic 
  • Physics 
  • Chemistry 
  • Biology 

These categories accompany various subcategories that these students learn. Even if one wants to specifically become a chemical engineer, they still need to have knowledge in all the other scientific fields, as chemical engineering is complex and pulls from every area of science.  

Other Skills Required to Be a Chemical Engineer 

Obtaining a degree is only half the work if engineers don’t possess the correct skillsets. Here are some of the most sought-after skills companies look for when hiring chemical engineers:  

Attention to Detail 

  • Since they work directly with toxic chemicals, machines, and other hazardous products, these types of scientists must be cautious and precise at all times. An error or oversight on their part could result in anything from a minor incident, to fatalities. 

Math Skills 

  • The idea of being precise carries over to the scientist’s mathematical skillset. When formulating chemical products, they must allow no room for error in their calculations.  


  • While they must be precise, they also must be willing to take risks. Companies want scientific professionals who will help create new and better formulas, machinery, and other products for their business. 

People Skills 

  • Engineers must be able to communicate with all kinds of people. They must be able to listen and interact with a company’s leaders to learn what they expect of them. And if working on a piece of machinery for a manufacturing plant, then they must listen to the workers who are in direct contact with the machinery to learn of any issues, ideas, etc. 

Reasons to Hire Women Chemical Engineers 

Women make for great engineers. In general, women tend to… 

  • Listen and collaborate with others well 
  • Have a keen eye for detail 
  • Come up with creative and innovative ideas 
  • Have a different outlook on issues than men 
  • Create a safe and inclusive workspace in which all employees benefit 

Because of these characteristics, women tend to be great leaders, and scientific professionals must be leaders in their own right if they are to have a successful career. With the growing number of women pursuing degrees and careers in chemistry, companies should be looking to women to fill their engineering positions. Figure one below shows the ratio of men to women in chemical engineering. Though the number is not high, it is still higher than it has been before.

Figure One: Census Bureau, 2019

Chemical engineers are responsible for evolving the world of chemistry, so why not evolve this position by filling it with more equally-capable female engineers? 

Recruiting and Retaining in the Chemical Industry 

Hiring a diverse team of professionals is key in every industry, but is becoming more apparent in the chemical industry. Chemical engineering and other STEM-related professions remain male-dominated with plenty of room to diversify, especially when it comes to hiring women. More companies are beginning to take notice of the plethora of benefits associated with hiring more females in the field of chemical engineering and are starting to specifically recruit them to their team.  

How to Recruit Women in the Chemical Chemical Engineering Industry 

  1. Internal Hiring Opportunities 

Create hiring opportunities available to current employees to make lateral or promotional transfers within the company. This will allow your company’s existing female employees to take higher-up leadership opportunities the same as their male counterparts. Not only will the company benefit from a more diverse team of leadership, but will also have the added bonus of not having to train someone new who isn’t familiar with the company. 

  1. Establish a Company’s Commitment to Diversity 

If a company seeks to externally hire more women or people of any minority group, then they should take steps to show prospective hires how they’re committed to diversity. Including a statement on the company website and backing up the statement with proof about the company’s commitment to an inclusive team will allow future hires to know the company’s beliefs and values align with their own. This commitment should be ingrained in the day-to-day work life and not just used as leverage to make the company appear more inclusive. 

  1. Target Colleges 

The number of females working in STEM-related fields is thanks to the increase in the number of females pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in STEM in recent years. This group of women is the future of STEM and engineering professions. If your business is looking to add young and educated hires to your team, then target the promising individuals in the undergrad or grad programs who are eager to start their careers in chemical formulation and design. 

How to Retain Women in the Chemical Industry 

Recruiting an employee is one thing, but giving them reasons to stay with your business is another. Retaining female employees requires that companies provide them with equal opportunities at all times. This translates to every area of work, including equal pay and equal chance of promotion to leadership positions as other male employees. Your business should also make the effort to offer a great maternity leave plan if applicable and continuously commit to creating a safe and inclusive space. 

Women-Owned Manufacturing Businesses 

At the beginning of the 20th century, women were not given many opportunities to pursue careers—they could pursue things like teaching, domestic labor, and a limited portion of factory work. In our modern society, women are a major part of the workforce—including the manufacturing industry.  

There are many assumptions out there that women are not involved in the manufacturing industry, whether it be because they can’t, shouldn’t, or just don’t. What most people don’t know is that many women hold extremely important roles in manufacturing, even owning successful businesses. In increasing rates, women are earning higher degrees in manufacturing-related fields—in fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted research that shows that since the 1960s, the number of women in manufacturing has increased by over 40 million. Despite this, women in manufacturing are still underrepresented, with women making up only approximately 29% of the people in this industry. This makes it even more important to highlight some influential women in manufacturing. Figure two below shows manufacturing businesses primarily owned by women and other industries.

The Chemical Industry & Supply Chain Disruptions

In everyday life, it’s common to not be able to get the products and supplies a consumer needs due to the many supply chain disruptions our world is currently facing. No one has been untouched by the supply chain disruptions from regular everyday consumer products to the automobile industry because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Now it’s time for us to take a further look into supply chain chaos in the past and how it’s affecting places like the chemical industry now. 

Chemical Supply Chain Disruptions: A History of 

As a world, there are many instances in which disruptions have taken place, and they come in many forms from production, transportation, supplies, consumer demand, and shortages. How do disruptions like these come about? It can emerge from anything like weather-related disasters, to consumer protests, and even like most recently, trucker protests in Canada that have barred trucks from making it to the United States and disrupting cross-border trading efforts.  

Figure 1 below shows in detail the many ways in which supply chain disruptions have taken place in all its many forms.  

supply chain throughout history

Figure 1. History of Supply Chain Disruptions (Diann Daniel)

Most notable in terms of supply chain disruption was Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged the Gulf of Mexico back in 2005 causing shockwaves that were felt up the Mississippi River and across the nation. Though, Hurricane Katrina brought to light how unprepared businesses and consumers were for such a large disaster that it set a precedent for how we look at supply chain disruptions even today. For example, when Texas was hit with an unforeseen polar vortex. 

Economic Factors Affecting Supply Chain

Economic shifts are also a means of supply chain disruptions. Looking at the 2016 Brexit event, when the UK left the EU there were many changes made to the supply chain after that dramatic shift in economics. Seeing how different kinds of environmental factors affect supply chains, with the recent COVID-19 pandemic taking place, how is the chemical industry being impacted by COVID-19 supply chain disruptions? 

The Chemical Industry and COVID-19 Disruptions 

Chemical companies and the chemical industry overall have been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Before we can examine the effects on the chemical industry, we must look at supply chains overall. 

During the pandemic, businesses had way too much stock as consumers cut back on spending and tightened budgets due to lay-offs and job losses. Businesses were able to liquidate inventories and cut their losses. But as consumers reentered the markets and began resuming their previous purchasing habits, businesses inventories could not make the demand. In the U.S. Census Small business survey, it was found that about 36% of small businesses reported shipping delays because of their suppliers. Figure 2 below outlines industries’ supplier supply chain disruptions because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

supply chains  Figure 2. Disruptions by Industry (U.S. Census Bureau)

More About the Chemical Industry

Seeing sectors like transportation and warehousing sitting at almost 20% shows a correlation to the chemical industries and the transportation of chemicals to manufacturers. A key takeaway from an NACD Shipping Survey concluded that in June 2021, 84.5% of chemical distributors reported that they were out of some products with a potential of that number going up to 92%. Take into account as well that this survey was conducted well before the holiday season and there is no follow-up study to reflect those statistics. 

As 2022 continues, supply chain issues will continue to worsen for chemical manufacturers as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused manufacturers and businesses to modify their operation processes because of supply chain disruptions. Things like raw materials needed to make chemical products have been affected the most because of shortages and the increased transit costs because of supply chain demands and lack of drivers  

Also, to keep up with these rapid changes of demand in the chemical markets, over 1 million drivers need to be hired to keep up with the rapid demand. In terms of shortages of raw materials, companies are taking other steps to counteract the effects of supply chain disruptions. Figure 3 below shows how companies overall planned activities in May of 2020 versus June of 2021.

Figure 3. Supply Chain 2020 and 2021 (McKinsey)

Furthermore, chemical industries and more are making constant shifts to counter supply chain disruptions and work to find new ways to support business and facilitate sales. Businesses and consumers alike can now ask the question if they’re learning how to make changes now, how can they continue to avoid situations like this in the future? 

How to Avoid Issues in the Future? 

How are situations like this avoided in the future? Risk managers help provide valuable insight into how businesses can better themselves in the event of the past. There are around five ways in which risk managers have found that businesses can look to, to make sure events like these are preplanned for, some of those suggestions are: 

  • Quantifying Risk

Meaning to look at risks already identified for the future and find the right data to help in the decision-making processes. Quantifying risk can also be looking at risk and the interactions those risks may have and looking at all outcomes that could take place. 

  • Planning Situations

This goes beyond looking at the outcomes of risks. Planning scenarios suggest looking at all the parts of your supply chain and transport and evaluating all your processes as they would happen through different scenarios. 

  • Network Building

The world is better when we all work together. To work to prevent future supply chain disruptions, businesses and companies must build networks full of elements from all parts of the supply chain to work on risk management strategies together. 

  • Sharing Information 

The many processes of working through the network of the supply chain to share what everyone knows about their duties. Furthermore, data sharing ensures open knowledge to all networks. This way there can be a standard built between parts of the supply chain to help lessen the impact of future disasters.  

  • Public and Private Matters

Stakeholders have a large impact on the businesses they support. Keeping an open transparent line of communication with stakeholders is important. Therefore, businesses can keep good relationships and build better trust with stakeholders.
