The process technologies and production economics for low density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) are presented. Processes from major technology developers are reviewed. Cost of production estimates have been developed for USGC, China, and Middle East locations for LDPE and EVA. Production economics for LDPE are compared with LLDPE. Demand by end-use, capacity, and supply/demand/trade data is provided on a global basis and for North America, Western Europe, and Asia Pacific.

Large-scale electrochemical energy storage (EES) is growing in importance, with commercialized technologies, declining costs, and integration with renewable power sources (e.g., solar PV and onshore/offshore wind) thereby becoming a greater part of overall power generation mix while reducing overall carbon footprint, achieving decarbonization targets, and enhancing global sustainability.
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the caprolactam industry. In addition to conventional caprolactam production from cyclohexane and phenol, this report also includes coverage of processes using non-conventional feedstocks.The analysis provides cost of production estimates for commercial and developing technologies for caprolactam production, within the USGC, Western Europe and China regions. Market analysis and an industry overview are also included to illustrate the commercial aspect of the industry.
This report provides a technical review of commercial and developing technologies for reformate and benzene production. New developments, process descriptions and economics are included. Cost of production estimates for several reformate and benzene production processes are developed to illustrate the cost competitiveness in selected regions: USGC, China, Middle East, Southeast Asia, and South Korea. Commercial end-use applications, along with global and regional supply, demand, and trade data is also included.
The process technologies and production economics for linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), including LLDPE/HDPE swing processes are presented. Processes from major technology developers are reviewed. Cost of production estimates have been developed on a USGC, China, and Middle East basis for conventional and second generation resins. Demand by end-use, capacity, and supply/demand/trade data is provided on a global basis and for North America, Western Europe, and Asia Pacific.
An assessment of currently commercial and innovative pre-commercial processes in the nascent battery recycling sector. Examines whether the sector is likely to be dependent on tipping fees or producer responsibility transfer, or if sector can be profitable on metals basis with variation based on incoming battery mix. Strategic outlook for battery recycling is examined in context of economic modeling, current capacity buildup, current and future battery technology, and public policy.
ABS is produced by the mass (or bulk) or emulsion/mass hybrid polymerization of three monomers: acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. Additionally, pre-polymerized materials can be compounded together to produce ABS. This technoeconomic report includes production economics for world-scale mass, hybrid, and compounding routes to produce ABS. The analysis was prepared for plants located in the U. S. Gulf Coast, Western Europe, and Coastal China.
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the alkoxylation technology used to produce surfactants, including the economics, and markets for the production of ethoxylates. Commercial process technologies based on both the conventional stirred tank reactor system and representative loop reactor systems are discussed. Cost of production estimates of these production routes are included to illustrate the cost competitiveness of different ethoxylate products in selected regions. A market review including regional ethoxylation capacities and supply/demand figures is also presented.
This techno-economic report reviews the chemistry, properties, technology, and development trends of melamine. The report provides melamine economics for several different global locations (USGC, Western Europe and China) under a consistent 1Q2020 price scenario. An analysis for stand-alone melamine and integrated urea-melamine facilities are also provided. The report also offers melamine reference lists for major licensors and manufacturers.
This techno-economic report reviews the chemistry, properties, technology, and development trends of polyisobutylene. The report provides polyisobutylene economics for several different global locations (USGC, Western Europe, China, and South Korea) under a consistent first half 2020 price scenario. An analysis of the ROI and investment attractiveness for polyisobutylene facilities is also provided. Regional market analysis for polyisobutylene is also included.
