Recycling of Mixed Plastics Waste (2019 Program)

This TECH report focuses on the technology for the recycling of multilayer packaging, sorting of mixed plastics, compatibilization process and production of post-consumer plastics-asphalt mixtures. The report provides an estimate of the cost of production for sorting of mixed plastic waste using NIR, Laser, electrostatic separation, and the compatibilization process (for U.S. and Western Europe). Major suppliers for optical sorting equipment, major suppliers of compatibilizers, and technology holders for selective dissolution process are profiled.

Air Separation Technology (2019 Program)

This techno-economic report focuses on cryogenic and non-cryogenic air separation technologies that separate air into commodity gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and argon.  Five players dominate the global market, but many regional suppliers also compete on a local level, providing consumers with many supply choices.  The report profiles the major global licensors, describes cryogenic and non-cryogenic technologies to produce oxygen and nitrogen, provides process economics for different production routes, and summarizes commercial applications and market drivers for air separation gases.

Hydrogen Peroxide (2019 Program)

Hydrogen peroxide is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents known. Global demand is forecast to grow by 4.7 percent per annum on average, well above GDP level. Nearly all capacity is based on the anthraquinone auto-oxidation process. However, most R&D efforts are directed toward developing a direct synthesis route (i.e., without the use of an anthraquinone working compound). Thus, the cost of production via those routes for plants located in the United States, Western Europe, the Middle East, and China has been estimated for the second quarter of 2019.  Nexant also commented on the motivations behind the recent capacity additions and provided a high-level analysis of the business and strategic considerations as well as the technology availability from the perspective of a company entering or expanding into the hydrogen peroxide market. This analysis is underpinned by a review of end-use sector consumption as well as regional market dynamics.

Biorenewable Insights: Renewable Natural Gas (2019 Program)

RNG (renewable natural gas) is a mostly methane stream that is most commonly derived from biogas produced by anaerobic digestion or from landfill gas (LFG) by removing impurities such as CO2, H2S, and water vapor to achieve a purity similar to pipeline fossil natural gas.  Other means of production include conventional catalytic methanation of waste CO2 with renewable hydrogen (made by water electrolysis with renewable electricity), and advanced electrochemical processes. RNG can be added to the natural gas pipeline, burned locally for heat and power, or fed to chemical synthesis.

Biorenewable Insights: Non-Ester Renewable Diesel (2019 Program)

Renewable diesel encompasses products from bio-based sources that can be substituted with diesel fuel.  This report covers non FAME renewable diesel as produced: Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), HVO co-processing with Petroleum, Biomass Pyrolysis Diesel and other routes.  Most renewable diesel technologies are relatively competitive with the market price for renewable diesel in the United States.
