Residents prepared for the power outages, supply shortages, and flooding that typically accompany storms of this predicted magnitude. As Debby made landfall, the heavy downpour saturated the west coast of the state causing severe erosion in many areas. Some roads turned into rivers, compromising local thoroughfares across the state. Once the water subsided, the state had to analyze the damage and create a plan to move forward with repairs. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved up to $200,000 in emergency funding to repair the portions of St. Joe Road that were closed off. Officials estimated that the road would be closed for at least a month, according to the Tampa Bay Times. To address the roadway challenges and erosion concerns, a group of certified engineers, planners, and surveyors who manage major development and transportation projects in the Tampa Bay area was contacted for support. It was clear that the solution needed to provide green vegetation and greater slope protection for St. Joe Road. Source

This article gives a brief overview of challenges in the use of rare earth elements. Solutions to address geopolitical and sustainability concerns are being developed by green chemists all over the world. Universities, national research labs and businesses alike are seeking more environmentally friendly methods of rare earth extraction or entirely novel approaches to achieving functions similar to those provided by rare earths.

Sustainability is the route to a new bioeconomy for the pine chemicals industry. Paclitaxel, a semi-synthetic drug used to make taxol, an anti-cancer drug, was initially derived from Pacific Yew. The synthesis was eventually carried out by genetically modifying microorganisms to produce paclitaxel from fermentation process in a long term. Companies like Elevance are thinking about ways of using proprietary metathesis chemistry to produce olefin chemicals as replacements for petrochemically-derived chemicals. Source
