The LCGC Blog: The Analytical Arsenal for Point Source Attribution

The petroleum industry appears to be making significant strides to improve the environmental stewardship and operational efficiency of energy production by implementing new technologies and capitalizing on previously wasted resources like produced water and flare gas. Nonetheless, many questions still remain about the management of aging or even abandoned infrastructure because abandoned production wells provide a potential for undocumented contamination events.

The LCGC Blog: Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) in the Hydrocarbon Processing Industry (HPI) is an Opportunity for Industrial–Academic Partnerships

In April 2020, on the heels of the pandemic shutdown, the price of crude oil fell to a negative value for the first time ever. The shutdown hit many oil and gas companies hard. But while companies lick their wounds and decide their next moves, an important concept called environmental and social corporate governance (ESG) has come greater into focus.

The LCGC Blog: Last Dance, for a While—Time to Share the Wealth

Kevin Schug takes a break from his popular blog and reveals an exciting new collaboration between LCGC and the American Chemical Society Analytical Division, Subdivision on Chromatography and Separations Chemistry, to keep readers abreast of the latest trends and developments in separation science with a new series of blogs from members of this group.
