Research management technologies enable researchers to organize and leverage critical data in order to decide whether to transport crude oil from a particular well by pipeline, truck, rail or boat.
In order to take full advantage of the power of machine learning, researchers at oil and gas companies need to be able to work with many large datasets from multiple research departments, and it can be tough to keep it all in order using traditional paper notebooks.
Frequent fluctuations in the regulatory environment can pose challenges for oil and gas researchers who are seeking to to improve the materials and methods used in hydraulic fracturing. Electronic lab notebooks make it easy to access previous data, and, if necessary, use it to update or alter their recommendations based on new regulations.
Iced coffee has been around for a while and isn’t going anywhere, but more product refinement and improvement is sure to come over the next few years. And as competition within the iced coffee sector increases, focusing on bringing these new formulations and methods to market faster will be the key to gaining market advantage.

Weekend warriors who once stuck to road 5Ks and leisurely bike rides are now tackling half-marathons, marathons, triathlons and cycling tours. Many of these athletes fuel […]
Considering food through the lens of materials science might initially seem strange, but if you imagine food items as collections of gels, emulsions and foams, you can begin to see how the concepts of materials science could change how we prepare, store and improve our foods. Moreover, there are numerous structuring processes that go into the creation of foods and most companies desire that these processes will result in food that is standardized, safe and appealing for consumers. But food can be so much more than standard and appealing.
