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.
This report will provide a strategic analysis of thermolysis technologies and how viable they are for olefins production from mixed plastics waste. Selected technology developers of pyrolysis and gasification processes will be profiled and ranked by different criteria. The economics for thermolysis technologies and olefins production will be provided for different geographic regions and oil price scenarios, and compared to the production of olefins by conventional technology. In addition, the report will include an analysis of the feedstock stream and a logistics overview of the feedstock and thermolysis products.
This report continues the analysis “developing fortunes in the C4 value chain” published in 2012. Since this time the business landscape has evolved dramatically, with the C4 value chain in 2020 exposed to an extraordinary set of circumstances that are shaping its prospects for development in the near term. These include: global economic turmoil impacting demand due to the coronavirus pandemic; reclining refinery and petrochemicals production; structural changes in global olefin investments and feedstock selection; and uncertainties in natural rubber supply and pricing. Nexant’s new study 'Continuing Fortunes in the C4 Value Chain' will provide up-to-date detailed analysis into the principal industry dynamics that will shape the C4 value chain over the next decade. This new report will assist our clients to better understand the key issues and to position themselves effectively to address the challenges that the industry faces.
Plastics Recycling: Impact on the Polymers Industry in Asia Pacific – Volume I: China, Japan and Australia
This report examines the impact of the recycling of plastics on virgin plastics demand in Asia Pacific, with a focus on China, Japan and Australia. It also provides insight into the recycling value chain, including an analysis of the industry structure, key players and acquisitions. An overview of the recycling initiatives and players in South East Asia is also included.
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.
This Webinar discussed the emergence and rapid growth of electrically-powered road vehicles which has become a key issue for consideration when assessing the outlook for refined products demand.
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?
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.
This report analyzes the impact of the recycling of plastics on virgin plastics demand in Western Europe and the United States It will also provide insight into the recycling value chain, including an overview of the industry structure, key players and acquisitions. Recent changes in legislation, including China, are also highlighted in the report.
