Process technologies for the production of small scale methanol and DME are presented. Coverage includes both commercial and developing small scale methanol and DME technologies. Key drivers for the development of small scale plants, such as supporting local demand, feedstock availability and options, and potential use as a marine fuel are discussed. Regional production economics for small scale methanol and DME technologies are included. Global and regional supply, demand, and trade for methanol and DME are also provided.
This report examines the technology, cost of production, environmental impacts & restrictions, and markets for the leading fluorocarbons that are widely utilized today, as well as the latest fluorocarbons that are being commercialized to replace legacy fluorocarbons that have negative environmental impacts.
Process technologies for the production of propylene are presented. Coverage includes prevalent byproduct sources of propylene such as conventional fluid catalytic cracking as well as enhanced FCC technologies, steam cracking, and fractionation. On-purpose propylene processes include propane dehydrogenation, methanol to olefins, methanol to propylene, and metathesis. Production economics for byproduct and on-purpose propylene technologies are included on a USGC, Middle East, Western Europe, and China basis. Global and regional supply, demand, and trade for propylene are also provided.
This report provides an updated overview of the technological, economic and market aspects of selected specialty styrenics, including ASA, MBS, MABS, SMMA. Detailed cost of production estimates for various technologies are presented for USGC, China, Western Europe and Middle East.
The process technology and production economics for polyvinyl alcohol and its key raw material, vinyl acetate, are presented. Comparative cost of production estimates are developed for the USGC, China (acetylene and ethylene-based), Japan, Taiwan, and Western Europe. Global demand by application as well as tri-regional capacity and supply/demand/trade data is provided.
Thermal energy storage (TES) technologies and systems provide a major opportunity for better economic benefits and enhanced energy management. This includes expected mismatches in supply and demand for cooling or heating requirements, thereby offsetting differences in time and magnitude of cooling or heating production. TES can also jointly assist in harnessing and integrating “stranded” renewable power supply through possible co-location with distributed energy resources such as based on solar and wind energy. This report provides an overview of the various developing and commercial TES technologies in the United States and includes a methodology for structuring the levelized cost of storage (LCOS).
This technology report provides a comprehensive view of Linear Alkylbenzene (LAB) and Linear Alkylbenzene Sulfonate (LAS) production technology. It includes detailed analyses of all the major technologies involved in both the production of LAB and its sulfonation to LAS, with both cost of production and sensitivity analyses. Additionally, industry trends, drivers and markets have been reviewed to provide an overview of the whole value chain.
This TECH report concerns toluene diisocyanate (TDI), a chemical used in the production of polyurethanes. An analysis of the chemistry, technology, markets, and process economics is given.
