The Future of Plastic Recycling
In this report, we modeled the process economics of the incumbent recycling process – mechanical recycling – as well as advanced recycling technologies – depolymerization, pyrolysis, and solvent-based recycling – in order to determine the economics of these processes, and understand the effects of market factors and technology development on those economics.
The Digital Transformation of the Food Industry
Major food companies face intense competition from smaller, more agile brands. With personalization in focus, there are fewer benefits to being big; innovating to address changing consumer demands will be key. Adaptability is critically important for any food company that expects to survive through 2050.
CO2 Capture and Utilization: The Emergence of a Carbon Economy
The global market size for CO2 utilization is set to reach a market value of $70 billion by 2030, which will then increase to $550 billion by 2040. Global CO2 emissions witnessed steady growth in the 21st century despite unprecedent action against climate change.
Decarbonizing the Global Energy Trade
The growth of the global economy has also resulted in a greater demand for energy. However, not every country can meet its own energy demands through domestic production, and the global energy trade – notably coal, oil, and natural gas – is crucial for many countries to maintain a growing economy.
The Lux Carbon Canvas: 2021 Edition
In our new report, “The Lux Carbon Canvas: 2021 Edition,” we developed the Lux Carbon Canvas to evaluate companies’ levels of resilience to a future carbon price. In the 2021 edition, we analyzed 61 companies in the oil and gas, utility, aluminum, cement, fertilizer, and steel industries from the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East.
