HOUSTON, Jan. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LyondellBasell (NYSE : LYB ), one of world's the largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies, has teamed up with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) to teach college professors from around the world about process safety so they can in turn better prepare their students for entering the chemical industry.
