Olefins from Mixed Plastics Waste – Are Thermolysis Routes Viable?

This report examines the technical, economic and business aspects of thermolysis (i.e., pyrolysis and gasification) of mixed plastics waste. Analyses of the mixed plastics waste and the thermolysis plant location are included in the report. Selected developers of pyrolysis and gasification technologies are profiled and ranked under different criteria. The economic analysis of thermolysis technologies (involving the production of syn-naphtha and methanol) and olefins production (i.e., ethylene and byproduct propylene) are provided for different geographic regions. In addition, the report includes an analysis of the regional competitiveness and profitability in the USGC, WE, and China of olefins production compared with various oil price scenarios. Strategic and business considerations are also included in the report.

Petrochemical Price Scenarios at $20/bbl Brent

Global energy markets have been quick to react to the evolving coronavirus situation.  Crude oil prices have plummeted as oil producing countries have disagreed on production strategies to support pricing levels given the current global supply glut.   In response to this, a new Low Low scenario offers pricing for principle feedstocks (petroleum and gas based), olefins, polyolefins and aromatics.   The scenario assumes crude oil prices remain depressed at a steady $20 per barrel in real terms through 2025.  Analysis is provided in Excel, with accompanying presentation and discussion time with the Lead Consultant.

Sorting through Plastic Waste – Is Chemical Recycling a Solution?

This report examines the technical, economic and business aspects of chemical recycling of PET, PS and mixed plastics (plastics to fuel). Selected technology developers of chemical recycling are profiled and ranked under different criteria. The economics for chemically recycling several types of plastic waste are provided for different geographic regions, and compared to the production of virgin material by conventional technology. In addition, the report includes an analysis of the MSW stream and the economics for the incineration of waste with energy recovery.

White Paper: Electric Vehicles – Disruptions in the Chemicals and Refining Industries

Electric Vehicles (EVs) have gained significant momentum in recent years, supported by regulatory incentives, changing consumer perception and the willingness of much of the auto manufacturing industry to throw its weight behind the development of affordable electric models in large numbers.  So, how will the growth of EVs impact the mining, oil and gas, petrochemical/ polymers industries?  Will supply be able to adapt fast enough or become a limiting factor in EVs growth?

Vehicle Electrification: Impact on the Refining Sector

The emergence and rapid growth of electrically-powered road vehicles has become a key issue for consideration when assessing the outlook for refined products demand.  At this early stage of development, forecasts of the extent to which electric vehicles will play a role in future transport fleets vary widely, thanks to a complex set of interdependent market drivers, each of which is subject to considerable uncertainty.  Based on these varying drivers, this report will provide a range of scenarios for EV fleet growth, and assess their potential impact on the consumption of gasoline and diesel.
