Sustainable Materials For Chemical Construction (2023 Program)

Public and private efforts for sustainability will soon result in fundamental changes to the production processes for materials used in construction of chemical and fuel plants, representing a gradual shift from major historical capital cost structures. This study examines the underlying materials associated with capital cost in the chemical and fuels industries and the coming effects of low-CI production methods on their costs, focusing on key materials such as steel, aluminum and concrete as well as other key factors for capital cost.
