#WHO has not said that "#bacteriological #weapons" are produced in #UkraineImage
‘Reuters also, quoting #UN officials, writes that #WHO, in its work with #Ukraine, "is not aware of any activity in the country that would violate international treaties 'including #chemical or #biological #weapons'".
Therefore, there is no evidence that the health #laboratories referred to by #WHO in its note to the #Ukrainian government are used to produce #biological #weapons, as erroneously claimed in the post under analysis.

“How the #myth of #biolaboratories was born and how it spread in #Ukraine

#russian #disinformation #biolabs #Ukraine Image
‘Since the early hours, the #Russian #invasion of #Ukraine has spawned a staggering amount of #conspiracy theories. Some point to completely denying the very existence of conflict, arguing that the #dead and #wounded are actually “#actors”;
others try to raise concerns about specific events, such as the #bombing of the #Mariupol #hospital or the #Bucha #massacre; and still others perform a #propaganda function, above all that of the phantom #Ukrainian "#biolaboratories", one of the best known and most widespread.’

New report raises questions about safety of using PVC plastic pipes for drinking water.

A thread⬇️…
The Biden administration and Congress is providing $15 billion to municipalities that need to replace #toxic lead service lines, yet the #EPA has not offered guidance around what piping materials should be used to prevent homes from swapping one problematic material for another.
@PlasticsBeyond today hosted a news conference around the report with a team of experts. @DrShannaSwan @Mike_Schade @enckj @amandakigerOH

🟢Back to the Area 🟢 to collect follow up samples in & around #EastPalestine #Ohio. This is our team's 4th trip to the area since mid-February. Updates will be posted below.

Visited a home today along Sulfur Run.

It’s still contaminated.

After moving rocks, the PID read 2.1 ppm (not ppb) coming off the creek.

Background in air was 0-3 ppb
Contractors (paid by someone) seem to have left garbage in Sulfur Run. They didn’t clean up. You can’t tell me the sorbent pad is going to be used again.

Who is overseeing them?

🚩An imp thread🧵 regarding #HoliFestival


💫 Clear confusion regarding date & timings of #HolikaDahan '23

🌉 #Holi Jagran Importance

🪅Harmful effects of #Chemical Colors

🎋How to make Alternative #Homemade #Organic Colors

🔮#VedicHoli with ♻️#Palash
Date & Timing of every #Hindu festival is considered according to the Panchang which is a detailed calculation & study of stars, constellations and planetary positions.

Hence this year #HolikaDahan will occur on 2 days based on the timings of sunset.
There are 4 Maharatris in Sanatan Dharma which bestow maximum spiritual benefits to the spritual aspirant who makes the most of this auspicious time.

#Mahashivratri, #Holi, Shri Krishna #Janmashtami & #Deepawali. The sadhana performed during these pious hours acts as catalyst.

It is ironic that #BASF the the biggest #chemical company in the world and largest #energy user in #europe published its annual results yesterday, on the anniversary of the start of the invasion of #Ukraine by #Russia.
The impact for #BASF is massive. The company:
- Generated a net loss of EUR627 in 2022, down from EUR5.5bn in 2021
- Spent an extra EUR3.2bn in higher #energy costs last year, EUR2.7bn of which was in #europe
The good news for #BASF is that they have over the last years moved the business beyond #germany and #europe with the #Chinese business now more important and profitable than the #europe.

Exclusive: The German company Riol Chemie GmbH is suspected of having illegally exported toxic substances to Russia. Among them substances needed for the production of #chemical weapons. #NDRWDRSZ… THREAD
Customs investigators assume that company managers exported dual-use goods to Russia in + than 30 cases without having a licence. It is possible that the company also supplied a substance that is used, among other things, for the production of the warfare agent #Novichok
According to our information, most of the substances went to the company #Khimmed in Russia. According to information from our colleagues at @istories_media , #Khimmed & @OCCRP also cooperated with special laboratories of the FSB and the Russian military. Russian military.

So the head of the Russian NBC-defense troops Gen. Kirillov accused the US of a WMD provocation against RU in a briefing today. English translation of the statement is here:… ... #Chemical #Biological #Nuclear #Weapons
If you make accusations you normally want to provide some kind of proof or context. RU claims to have such information but falls short providing details. I will refrain from commenting on the "success of RU in conducting the special military operation":
RU claims that the US have already determined the procedure for an investigation. Maybe this a translation issue but is RU really claiming that the ICRC, the UN-Secretary General and OPCW are colluding with the US in such an alleged "provocation"? At least this is what they claim

A 2nd 🧵to provide context on the #Dmitrievsky #Chemical Plant, where it fits in the supply/value chain impacts it could have on that value chain. I will do a 3rd on the damage at this specific plant after getting input from friends who know this plant / type of plant
1st, thanks to all the readers who took an interest in my first reaction thread, and for the many questions that came in. 2nd this fire will not end #RussianWarCrimes or the attack on #Ukraine. It causes a large and long(?) disruption for multiple defense industry suppliers.
This plant was not a primary refinery. Those are the massive facilities which take raw crude oil or gas-Liquids mostly from huge pipelines and do first fractions. These huge plants then send traincar loads of first cuts to many places, including plants like #Dmitrievsky

A 🧵on the #Dmitrievsky #Chemical Plant explosion and fire. On @Twitter I mostly post on Data Security (20year as a CxO and #Votehacking. But I also have 9 years as CEO and longer on BODs of #AdvancedMaterials / #NanoMaterials.
The extreme damage, perhaps total destruction of this chemical plant is going to have a spectacular and massive impact on the #RussianArmy. Possibly grinding entire systems to a stop in weeks, perhaps even days.
Like many industrial sectors in #Russia, they tend to be centralized, massive + singular. This is generally a result of historic centralization of production under the Soviet model, and a fear of building massive high-cost infrastructure by nonRU firms #BASF #DuPont etc.

President Joe #Biden assured that "#Moscow will pay too high a price". Such reports are spreading in the media. Image
Truth: The White House completely ignores the fact that the last drop of chemical warfare agents stored in the Russian Federation was destroyed (…) back in 2017. Image
The same cannot be said for the US and its network of biolaboratories (…), which they were actively setting up in Ukraine.

Long Thread on investing in #Chemical Sector 🧪🧪

Like & Retweet for better reach !

While researching on the chemical company there are many factors taken into consideration, but a few of them play a crucial role in the future developments of the company.
The growth of any business is dependent on the income generation and profit expansion. This could be met through increasing the capacity or operating in low volume high value products.
Similarly in the chemical industry, scaling up plays a crucial role in determining the growth of revenues, however working in niche chemistry with high expertise results in margin expansion.
