Environmental Chemists on the Rise

Environmental chemists are much needed in most jobs, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, reports ibnlive.com.

All industries need environmental officers to assess the effect the business has on the environment, and find ways to reduce that impact. The job essentially involves knowing the effects of chemicals (or whatever the business deals with) on the environment. For example, how can a pharmaceutical firm safely and effectively dispose of waste products or leftover stock?

Industries are taking a much more proactive role in environmental issues, so that the role of chemists is becoming prominent. Pharmaceutical, chemical and waste disposal industries all obviously need environmental chemists, but recently even IT firms are beginning to employ people to monitor their environmental impact. A solid grounding in chemistry is of great importance, and it is often recommended that those looking into such a role go on environmental courses.

Sanofi Aventis Proposes Takeover of Genzyme

iStock_000006963239Medium[1]As reported by the Financial Times, the French pharmaceutical company, Sanofi Aventis, has made a preliminary takeover approach to the US biotech group, Genzyme.

It has been reported however that the approach does not constitute a formal proposal and the two companies are not currently in talks. However, Sanofi’s CEO Chris Viehbacher is reportedly considering using the company’s cash to partake in acquisitions in a bid to secure revenues as the patents on their existing drugs are set to expire.

The majority of Genzyme’s focus lies with orphan drugs – those which are used to treat rare conditions which affect a very small percentage of the population. These drugs there for come with high price tags – an attractive prospect for Sanofi.
