Petrochemical buyers, after a very difficult pandemic, can gain from China-driven deflation

Article | May 6, 2021

BUYERS OF polypropylene (PP) and other polymers and petrochemicals have had an incredibly difficult pandemic. Firstly, the converters and brand owners expected doom and gloom last March. At the time it seemed logical to expect a cratering of demand as the global economy pretty much imploded. Just looking at forecasts for GDP, parallels were drawn with the Global Financial Crisis when collapses in growth led to a cratering of polymers demand. The US is a good example where PP demand declined by 12% in 2008 over 2007. Demand then fell by a further 5% in 2009 over 2008.But what we all missed was the complete dislocation of polymers and petrochemicals demand from GDP. As economies registered historic declines, consumption went up. PP demand went through the roof, firstly for food packaging and hygiene applications.Then consumption for the durable goods made from PP also smashed through the rafters as we bought white goods (PP is used to make components of washing machines), consumer electronics (PP is used to make some electronic components) and carpets (PP fibres are used here).

THE BUSINESS CASE FOR SUSTAINABILITY IN THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY IN 2020 & BEYOND

Article | March 3, 2020

Sustainability fervor – which has been building in importance over the past few years – has reached a new height in 2020. Chemical industry leaders made lofty statements at the World Economic Forum in Davos about the importance of engaging in sustainable development. Despite that, the chemicals industry is big, conservative, and typically slow to move. This raises the question: "What factors will really force change in the chemicals industry, and what does that change look like?" In this blog, we examine three possible drivers of change – carbon taxes, investor pressure, and supply chain pressure – and discuss their possible implications. We specifically focus on chemical companies, as highly carbon-intensive industries like cement and steel face a very different picture with respect to sustainability challenges.

NON-CHEMICAL WEED CONTROL WITH FOAMSTREAM

Article | February 21, 2020

Unwanted weeds and vegetation don’t have to be controlled with harmful and dangerous chemicals. There are plenty of non-chemical and organic methods of weed control that are reliable and safe to use, such as Foamstream. Non-chemical weed control is the process of killing weeds without harmful toxins. This is sometimes referred to as cultural or organic weed control, with methods ranging from hoeing and hand-pulling, to hot water and of course, Foamstream.

Developing pre-rig solutions that are greener, safer and more efficient

Article | May 1, 2021

MAY 2021 ///Vol 242 No. 5 FEATURES Developing pre-rig solutions that are greener, safer and more efficient There is an increased focus in the oil and gas sector to look further afield to opportunities presented in deepwater locations. Because of this, finding cost-efficient solutions and overcoming the associated challenges that arise below 1,000 ft will be vital for the success of new activity. Jostein Aleksandersen, Neodrill There is an increased focus in the oil and gas sector to look further afield to opportunities presented in deepwater locations. Because of this, finding cost-efficient solutions and overcoming the associated challenges that arise below 1,000 ft will be vital for the success of new activity. All those currently—and those considering—operating in deepwater fields will have an awareness of the general challenges that are presented at such depths. From considerations relating to vast increases in pressure, to the potential for increased drilling time and days spent offshore, there are several hurdles that follow when operating in what are often challenging well environments. In addition, suitable solutions also must support the industry drive to reduce emissions by offering a more carbon-efficient approach.
