Subscriptions and Reports

Our analysts and consultants are continually tracking developments in sustainability.  Our reports address key questions such as:

Technology

  • What new technology developments are available to support companies with reduce/reuse/recycle? 

  • What new technologies are being developed to replace conventional processes and fossil-based materials, and to reduce carbon footprint? 

We can advise the techno-economic advantages for your business. 

Markets

  • What is the impact of recycling on virgin polymer demand? 

  • Whereabouts in the value chain does recycled material begin to compete? 

  • What are the implications of bio-based materials for the conventional industry?

We can advise you how to position for advantage.

Economics (Profitability and Pricing)

  • How are prices developed for recycled materials? 

  • Can recycled materials compete profitably with virgin materials? 

  • Under what conditions can chemicals and fuels from biomass economically compete with fossil-based materials?

We evaluate the cost and competitive landscape under multiple scenarios. 

NexantECA provides clients with understanding regarding the impact of technology developments on markets, such as emergence of chemical recycling, along with demand drivers through changing consumer behaviour, legislation and targets.  This insight enables and equips your product and business strategic planning teams.

These reports provide a comprehensive assessment - technology, markets and economics - in the development of alternatives to fossil fuels and energy supply.

 

Chemicals and Polymers

These reports provide a comprehensive assessment - technology, markets and economics - in the development of renewable and biodegradable polymers and chemicals.

 

Recycling

These reports provide a comprehensive assessment - technology, markets and economics - of the development of the recycling industries within the plastics and polymers industry.

 

Applications

These reports provide insight and analysis of the alternatives to conventional materials (polymers and plastics) within different industries, such as food packaging and automotive.

 

In addition to the above reports, our Biorenewable Insights program provides in-depth evaluations and reliable data on the technology, cost competitiveness and business developments of biorenewable chemicals and fuels.  The Biorenewable Insight (BI) program was created in response to the increasing activity in this industry segment in recent years, including entrances and exits of players, emergence and commercialization of new technologies, feedstocks, product types, as well as growing interest from companies in the oil, chemical, financial and other sectors.

NexantECA is also pleased to announce the launch a new series of Executive Leadership Reports focused on sustainability.  These reports will help executives navigate the evolving dynamics and implications of a sustainable focused future within the chemical industry, as well as provide assessment of recent industry announcements. NexantECA will share our opinions and give an independent review of technology assumptions. For more information, click here.
