Plasticity at London’s Science Museum

Inspired by the ICIS Training “Beginner’s Course in Petrochemicals,” which recommended a visit to London’s Science Museum exhibition “Plasticity,” our own Helena took her nine year-old nephew for a day of plastics, science and museum cafĂ© food.   “It’s better than an old fort,” was his acute observation.   Plasticity has exhibits from the history […]

Snow and Fire for London Base Oils

It sounds like the ICIS Base Oils Training in London on Monday got off to a flying start when trainer Amy Claxton‘s luggage went astray on her flight from snowbound Philadelphia.

Can business travel be back to pre-recession levels already? The Blog doesn’t want to jump to conclusions, but the turnout for the ICIS Training seminars on Monday and Tuesday this week was the highest for the past year – and this was after a strong attendance at November’s Aromatics Conference and a much higher than […]
