Another forward looking city pays the price of pioneering.
I cut my engineering eye teeth in a chemical plant where the chemistry was straightforward, and still there were enough problems to keep a staff of engineers employed to chase them down. How much worse could it get with leading edge organic chemistry? What happens if a key bug dies? Where does the waste stream go while the process is resolved?
