Scientific advances have improved the medicines we take to improve our health. Similarly, new technology, scientific data and environmental science have made the manufacturing process safer for people and the environment. Chemical companies have dedicated billions of dollars to upgrade facilities with new environmental technology, including extensive air and water monitoring investments. The newest facilities, including ones being built right now in our parishes, are constructed with the latest technology and cutting-edge environmental science initiatives to provide employees and communities with the best available health and safety processes and work environments.
