Air Separation Technology (2019 Program)

This techno-economic report focuses on cryogenic and non-cryogenic air separation technologies that separate air into commodity gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and argon.  Five players dominate the global market, but many regional suppliers also compete on a local level, providing consumers with many supply choices.  The report profiles the major global licensors, describes cryogenic and non-cryogenic technologies to produce oxygen and nitrogen, provides process economics for different production routes, and summarizes commercial applications and market drivers for air separation gases.

Specialty Polyesters (2019 Program)

Polyesters are a family of materials made from a dicarboxylic acid and an alcohol with two or more hydroxy functionalities.  The alternating reaction of a carboxylic acid and a hydroxy group, called a condensation reaction, yields a polyester.  This report covers a number of specialty polyesters, including PETG, PTT, Copolyester (i.e. TRITAN) and a thermoplastic elastomeric polyester generically referred to as copolyester elastomer (COPE).   PET and PBT are covered in separate TECH reports; PETG, PTT and Copolyester were selected for coverage as they are the largest volume materials of the remaining materials.  COPE is covered due to its interesting properties and ongoing growth opportunities.

Polyoxymethylene (Polyacetal) (2019 Program)

Acetal polymers, also known as polyoxymethylene (POM) or polyacetal are formaldehyde-based thermoplastics that have been commercially available for about 60 years. Polyformaldehyde (the homopolymer of polyacetal) is a thermally unstable material that decomposes on heating to yield formaldehyde gas. Two methods of stabilizing polyformaldehyde for use as an engineering polymer were developed and introduced by DuPont in 1959 and Celanese in 1962. This report outlines the Chemistry, Process Technology, Economics and Commercial aspects associated with the polyacetals.
