Technology and Costs
Biorenewable Insights (BI), provides in-depth evaluations and reliable data on the technology, cost competitiveness and business developments of biorenewable chemicals and fuels. BI was created in response to the increasing activity in this industry segment in recent years, including entrances and exits of players, emergence and commercialization of new technologies, feedstocks, product types, as well as growing interest from companies in the oil, chemical, financial and other sectors.
Biorenewable Insights builds on our well established TECH program and relies on Nexant’s history, methodology, and contacts within both the biorenewable and conventional petrochemical industries. In addition to providing technology descriptions and cost of production models for biorenewables, BI provides additional insights with comprehensive project-by-project capacity analysis and implications for the conventional industry. The creation of the BI program allows TECH to focus on developments within the broader and energy and chemical industry, as it was designed, allowing for a more focused analysis on biorenewables.
Biorenewable Insight reports typically cover:
Process flow diagrams and process descriptions
Risk-adjusted project capacities
Process economics – cost of production technologies for biorenewable technologies
Multi-regional cost of production estimates
Comparison to the conventional technology
Implications for the conventional industry
Upstream and downstream implications
Scales and market sizes
Cost, price, margins, and return
