Dublin, March 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Sustainable Feedstocks and Facility Integration Shape the Petrochemical Industry" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This study analyzes the competitiveness and dynamics of the various types of feedstocks available for the petrochemical industry, with the intention of revealing how the growing concerns and the subsequent efforts to reduce the use of fossil fuels in transportation and energy industries will impact the availability of fossil-based petrochemical feedstocks.
In the net zero emission (NZE) scenario examined in this study, stakeholders in transportation and energy sectors are expected to reduce emissions through decarbonization, and electrification, among many other energy efficiency levers. The study concludes that stakeholders will evaluate the use of alternate feedstocks to produce petrochemicals in a way that is both sustainable and profitable.
While the emissions in the petrochemical industry can be attributed to processes and feedstocks, this study covers the nature and footprint of feedstocks used in petrochemical production. The energy aspect is covered in Frost & Sullivan's report on decarbonization and associated processes. This analysis includes petrochemicals manufactured from hydrocarbons and from sustainable sources.
Finally, five key trends in the petrochemical industry are examined in this report: fossil-based (conventional) feedstocks, crude-oil to chemicals (COTC), carbon capture and storage (CCUS), recyclates and bio-based feedstocks, according to their degree of advancement, market opportunities, and key challenges in each of these segments.
