Sustainability Subscriptions and Reports


Our analysts and consultants are continuously tracking developments in sustainability

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.



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


  • 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 you how to position for advantage.


  • 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?

Profitability and Pricing

We evaluate the cost and competitive landscape under multiple scenarios.


  • 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?

Biorenewable Insights

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.

Special Reports focused on Low Carbon Intensity Petrochemicals

NexantECA is pleased to announce the launch of a new series of Special Reports focused on low carbon intensity petrochemicals.  These reports will help companies understand the evolving dynamics driving change and navigate the implications of these shifts to stay profitable and plan long term for a sustainable low carbon intensity focused future within the chemical industry.  These reports include a technical review that supports the cost of production and carbon intensity models used to assess comparative economics, carbon intensity, and calculate breakeven values for carbon intensity reduction, as well as providing strategic insights.  The first in the series, Low Carbon Intensity Ethylene, was published in August 2022.  Additional topics to be covered soon include propylene, C4s, aromatics, ammonia, methanol, polymers, and more.
