Houston, TX, June 03, 2019 --(PR.com)-- In the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, and Latin America, strong demand signals and incentives for diesel decarbonization are driving the rapid expansion of next generation biodiesel feedstocks
, technologies, and circular biorefineries to produce low-carbon biodiesel, biocrude, and renewable diesel fuels.
There are also inflation pressures for certain engineering polymers, including Nylon 66, where Benzene is a key feedstock
Department of Energy to design biomass comminution and screening equipment that produces flowable feedstocks
. The Crumbier[R] rotary shear machine, which received a 2016 AE50 Award, operates in tandem with optimized screening to produce feedstocks
that have low aspect ratios, uniform cross-sections, and low compressibility--all of which improve flowability.
With access to low-cost feedstock
, GCC petrochemical makers have long had an advantage over the other main producing regions - East Asia, Europe and North America - but the latter has closed the gap.
production levels will be slightly higher in 2016, over the 2015 total of 7.56 Mt worldwide.
It is partial oxidation of the feedstock
in a controlled manner

. The remaining mass after binder burnout was divided by the total mass before binder burnout to calculate the weight fraction of powder (wt.%) in feedstock
Matching the right feedstock
quality to a biomass conversion technology effectively facilitates the energy conversion process and improves the economic feasibility of forest biomass for energy production.
Summary: Falling oil prices and the emergence of feedstock
alternatives in the US spell mixed fortunes for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) petrochemicals sector
"It's too early in the process to say more, but it has to do with alternative feedstocks
and improving our competitiveness by becoming more efficient and lowering costs."
The transaction is in line with GCEH's plan to establish itself as a diversified multi-crop, renewable feedstock
producer, its president and CEO, Richard Palmer, stated.
This move to liquid feedstocks
will reduce profit margins and overall competitiveness for GCC players, as they do not offer the same cost advantages as gas feedstocks
, he added.
