Technologies to Meet New Bunker Fuel Specifications

Jun 2017/Oil, Gas and Refined Products
This techno-economic report offers a review of the options available to refiners and ship owners to conform to the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) global sulfur specification that will take effect in 2020.  Refiners must consider continuing current HSFO production, new fuel oil blending options, installing residue desulfurization technology to produce LSFO or installing residue upgrading technology to reduce HSFO production.  Ship owners must comply by purchasing more expensive compliant fuels, installing exhaust gas scrubbing units on their ships or switching to an alternative fuel that is inherently low sulfur.  The report also provides economics for these options in various regions under a consistent first quarter 2017 price scenario and includes an analysis of the global bunker fuels market.

Isoprene Derivatives

Dec 2016/Polymers and Plastics
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the technology, economics and markets for the production of isoprene derivatives, which include polyisoprene (IR), styrene block copolymer (SBC) and butyl rubber (IIR). Commercial process technologies based on various polymerization routes (coordination and anionic polymerization for IR, anionic polymerization for SBC and cationic polymerization for IIR) are discussed. Cost of production estimates are included to illustrate the cost competitiveness of IR, SBC and IIR production in selected regions. A market review including major regional capacities and supply/demand figures is also presented.
