In addition, the report will describe the sustainability issues that are driving change in the competitive landscape of the fertilizer sector.
Global energy markets have been quick to react to the evolving coronavirus situation. Crude oil prices have plummeted as oil producing countries have disagreed on production strategies to support pricing levels given the current global supply glut. In response to this, a new Low Low scenario offers pricing for principle feedstocks (petroleum and gas based), olefins, polyolefins and aromatics. The scenario assumes crude oil prices remain depressed at a steady $20 per barrel in real terms through 2025. Analysis is provided in Excel, with accompanying presentation and discussion time with the Lead Consultant.
This report will provide a strategic analysis of thermolysis technologies and how viable they are for olefins production from mixed plastics waste. Selected technology developers of pyrolysis and gasification processes will be profiled and ranked by different criteria. The economics for thermolysis technologies and olefins production will be provided for different geographic regions and oil price scenarios, and compared to the production of olefins by conventional technology. In addition, the report will include an analysis of the feedstock stream and a logistics overview of the feedstock and thermolysis products.

Renewable or green hydrogen is being developed as a working chemical for the renewable fuels and chemicals sector and as fuel for transportation and other applications. Production options explored for several global regions include thermochemical (biomass gasification), bio-methane reforming, electrolytic, and other, advanced pathways.
This report continues the analysis “developing fortunes in the C4 value chain” published in 2012. Since this time the business landscape has evolved dramatically, with the C4 value chain in 2020 exposed to an extraordinary set of circumstances that are shaping its prospects for development in the near term. These include: global economic turmoil impacting demand due to the coronavirus pandemic; reclining refinery and petrochemicals production; structural changes in global olefin investments and feedstock selection; and uncertainties in natural rubber supply and pricing. Nexant’s new study 'Continuing Fortunes in the C4 Value Chain' will provide up-to-date detailed analysis into the principal industry dynamics that will shape the C4 value chain over the next decade. This new report will assist our clients to better understand the key issues and to position themselves effectively to address the challenges that the industry faces.
