The ambition to achieve lower carbon footprint & net-zero target, coupled with growing pressure from governments and society to move away from fossil-based economy to a more sustainable model has prompted the chemical industry to make significant efforts to diversify its feedstock base, particularly through increased use of sustainable raw materials.
However, securing sustainable feedstocks remains a challenge. Companies are investigating novel technologies to increase the utilization of sustainable feedstocks, from carbon capture and utilization, Lignocellulosic and marine biomasses, HVO, sugarcane, beet, canola, algae, to closing the loop by utilizing the plastic waste stream, and many others.
