  • Catalyzing carbon dioxide

    On any given day, more than 2 million pounds of carbon dioxide are pumped into the atmosphere from factories, emissions from cars and trucks and the burning of coal and natural gas to generate electricity. For many, it's a cause for environmental concern, but for Haotian Wang, it's the perfect raw m more

  • When enzymes rival platinum

    A fuel cell converts chemical energy into electrical energy via hydrogen combustion. Though it is considered to be a clean technology - because it does not emit greenhouse gases - fuel cells do use costly rare metal catalysts1, such as platinum, to oxidize hydrogen and reduce oxygen. In recent years more

  • Light-activated catalyst grabs CO2 to make ingredients for fuel

    Scientists have developed a light-activated material that can chemically convert carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide without generating unwanted byproducts. The achievement marks a significant step forward in developing technology that could help generate fuel and other energy-rich products using a more

  • US Deficit Reduction Plans Affecting Profitability of the Petrochemical Industry

    Introduction A recent energy speech by US president Barack Obama outlining government intentions to increase fossil fuel tax – citing the fiscal deficit and political unrest in the Middle East as reasons and rejecting the solution of increased domestic crude oil production – has evoked a strong re more

  • Monomer World - May 2011

    Introduction The global monomer industry experienced a significant reduction in demand for downstream derivatives in May 2011. In most regions, this reduced demand caused the prices of monomers to significantly decrease. Shell’s Pulau Bukom (Singapore) ethylene and propylene unit are operational on more

  • Global and China 1,4-Butanediol (BDO) Industry Report, 2010-2011

    1, 4-butanediol (BDO) is an important raw material for basic organic chemicals and fine chemicals. Subject to the financial crisis, the global BDO capacity has showed sluggish growth, up merely 3.7% year on year in 2010. Due to high technology thresholds and limited raw material sources, the BDO pro more
