Key Pathways for Red, Purple, and Pink Hydrogen (2024 Program)

Red, purple, pink hydrogen provides key tangible, feasible, and viable pathways towards definitive global and regional decarbonization of supply/value chains with zero greenhouse gas emissions. Also, as part of an optimal energy mix, this includes, but not limited to, being an effective energy carrier for fuels, feedstocks, and production of downstream chemicals. In addition, providing enhanced reliability, resilience, and availability of baseload and peaking supply of electricity and hydrogen for wholesale and retail end-customers. Commercially advanced technologies via small modular reactors and proven processes via electrolysis and thermolysis are paving the way forward.

Advanced Battery Energy Storage Systems (2024 Program)

Advanced battery energy storage systems (BESS) are growing in importance with declining costs and increased integration with intermittent renewable power sources (e.g., solar PV and wind). Advanced BESS units plus renewable power are becoming a greater part of overall power generation mix while reducing carbon footprint, achieving decarbonization targets, and enhancing sustainability. Advanced BESS units also play an important role in many commercial and industrial applications as well as production of green ammonia, green methanol, and renewable and specialty chemicals’ industries. Current BESS units’ supply chains incorporate various commercially proven battery chemistries and technologies along with efficient subsystems, equipment, and components.

Recycling Options for Polyolefins (2023 Program)

The report begins by defining polyolefins, followed by an overview of production technology pertinent to polyolefins. It then highlights recent business advancements for each polymer grade, along with providing a list of technology licensors and developers. The report will then delve into a comprehensive analysis of four pivotal recycling technologies — mechanical recycling, solvent-based purification, pyrolysis, and hydrothermal treatment — that are either under development or being commercialized for the recycling and valorization of polyolefin waste. The report will discuss the distinct features and implications of each recycling process. A cost of production process economics analysis will be provided for mechanical recycling, solvent-based purification, pyrolysis, and hydrothermal liquefaction. Profiles of key active companies within each respective technology will be profiled to shed light on current industry players and their contributions to polyolefin recycling. A Carbon Intensity analysis will be carried out for mechanical recycling, solvent-based purification, pyrolysis, and hydrothermal treatment across the United States, Western Europe, and China.

Biorenewable Insights: Renewable Ethylene, Ethylene Oxide, and Ethylene Glycol (2023 Program)

This report investigates the various commercial and developmental routes for the production of renewable ethylene. Technologies based on bio-ethanol, bio-naphtha, and bio-methanol are investigated for ethylene production, as well as sugar and glycerin-based routes directly to ethylene glycol. Pyrolysis oil from thermal conversion of plastic wastes has seen significant development for conversion into bio-naphtha feedstock, as well as gasification of biomass to produce methanol for ethylene production. Dry reforming of methane with carbon dioxide and electrochemical production of ethylene are the new technologies covered in this edition of the report. Cost of production models, process descriptions, capacity analysis and implications for the conventional industry are included.
