This report analyzes the development in the production of sustainable natural rubber from alternative routes and plants. Relevant existing and under development technology/processes for extracting natural rubber from Hevea , guayule, and TKS are described. Hevea natural rubber comparative economics are presented and analyzed. This report covers existing global Hevea natural rubber plantation capacity and highlights the expected shift in natural rubber production centers as result of competing crops and increased plantations.
This report analyzes the technoeconomic developments in the bio-based polyamides industry sector. Relevant technologies processes are described and their comparative economics presented and analyzed.
This report provides analysis and forecasts to 2035 of the global carbon dioxide market. Market Insights: Carbon Dioxide - 2021 includes discussion regarding key trends, as well as demand outlook for nine regions: North America, South America, Western Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and China with forecasts to 2035. Demand is segmented by urea, enhanced oil recovery, food and beverages, and 'others. Cost competitiveness of two CO2 derived chemicals is also included.
This report analyzes the technoeconomic developments in only commercial bioplastics technologies. Relevant commercial technologies processes and high level economics are presented. Impacts on the conventional industry, trends and drivers are also discussed.
This report investigates the various commercial and developmental routes for the production of renewable ethylene. Ethanol, bionaphtha, and methanol are all investigated as biofeedstocks for ethylene, as well as sugar and glycerin based routes directly to ethylene glycol. Cost of production models, process descriptions, capacity analysis and implications for the conventional industry are included.
This report analyzes developments in bio-based butanediol (BDO) technologies. BDO (both 1,4-BDO and 2,3-BDO) derived from bio-based materials or processes can be used as is or converted into a number of chemical products - potentially improving the GHG profile of the process. This study assesses the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing different isomers of BDO via bio-based sources or processes.
This report is a comprehensive account on technologies that utilize carbon dioxide. Technologies profiled include carbonates, urea, methanol, ethanol, cement, and others. Results of economic analysis and analysis of CO2 utilization potential are included.
This study assesses the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing propylene from bio-propane, bio-naphtha, and direct fermentation. It compares cost of productions between the various routes, determines the likelihood of announced capacities, and comments on the implications for conventional propylene production.
This report investigates the various developers producing biobased lactic acid and PLA. Several commercial technologies are analyzed in depth. Analyses include technical descriptions and cost of production estimates.
