The process technology and economics for making polymer grade propylene via enhanced FCC processes are assessed. Several enhanced FCC technologies are described. FCC unit economics are compared for the enhanced FCC technologies versus conventional FCC operations with ZSM-5 additive.
This techno-economic report offers a review of chemistry, properties, technology, and development trends of methyl methacrylate. The report provides economics for methyl methacrylate for several different global locations (USGC, Western Europe, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia) under a consistent second quarter 2018 price scenario. The report also provides a regional market analysis.
This report provides a technical and economic review of processes for the production of ethylene dichloride (EDC) and vinyl chloride monomer VCM). Comparative economics are presented for 4 different EDC processes and 6 VCM processes in various geographic locations. Global and regional market analyses for EDC and VCM are also included.
This techno-economic report offers a review of chemistry, properties, technology, and development trends of Adipic Acid. The report provides economics for Adipic Acid for several different global locations (USGC, Western Europe, and China) under a consistent first quarter 2018 price scenario. The report also provides a regional market analysis.
Commercial and developmental process technologies for the production of ethylene are presented. Process coverage includes steam cracking, methanol to olefins, ethanol dehydration, and an evaluation of oxidative coupling of methane. Production economics for these conventional and non-conventional technologies are included on a USGC, Middle East, Western Europe, and China basis. Global and regional supply, demand, and trade for ethylene are also provided.
Commercial and developmental production technologies to ethylbenzene and styrene are discussed. Regional cost of production estimates are evaluated for ethylbenzene and styrene on a USGC, Coastal China, and Middle East basis. Global and regional demand by end use, capacity, and supply/demand/trade data is also provided.
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the technology and economics of propylene oxide (PO) production. Economic models are developed for the chlorohydrin, cumene hydroperoxide, PO/SM, PO/MTBE and HPPO processes. Global and regional supply/demand/trade for PO is also presented.
In this report, Nexant examines chemical industry sustainability activities against sustainability in downstream industries. Nexant profiles sustainability activities from several companies in several different industries and highlights key differences in the reports. This report discusses the future direction of sustainability and the impact this will have on the chemical industry.
The coal to olefins value chain consists of multiple steps starting with coal gasification followed by methanol synthesis and then by conversion of methanol to olefins. This report discusses the major technologies associated with each of these steps and presents production economics for coal-based olefins with comparisons to gas- and oil-based technologies. Global and regional supply, demand, and trade for ethylene and propylene are also presented.
